Why TGI needs your support

The stated goal of Theatre Gap Initiative is to provide rigorous training and guidance for students of color seeking admission into respected bachelor of fine arts programs. Tuition for the program equates to approximately one third of the total operating budget. Full tuition would essentially exclude the very students we seek to service. As we continuously pursue corporate gifts and grant money, it is imperative that we also have support from the public.

Your investment in this mission is vital to their success. Access to a quality arts education should be a standard that we all aspire towards. Whatever creed, color, ethnicity, sexual orientation, gender identification, or socioeconomic background a student comes from, following their artistic dreams should be encouraged. Supporting Theatre Gap Initiative will help to fill that gap of accessibility for tremendously talented and ambitious young artists.
