From Us To You: Thank You
It is your support that has allowed us to build a theatre worthy of a Tony, and so from all of us here at the Huntington, we say thank you, and we wish you a happy holiday season.
When the Tony Awards Committee announced they had chosen the Huntington to receive the 2013 Tony Award for Outstanding Regional Theatre, they cited our practice of creating "eclectic seasons of exciting new works and classics made current." They went on to note that the Huntington has regularly "gone above and beyond by mentoring playwrights, educating young people, and providing Boston-based companies with discounted audience services and facilities" so that we can fulfill our mission "to cultivate, celebrate, and champion theatre as an art form."
What it did not recognize, however, was the key element that allows us to maintain both our standards and our ambitions.
That element is you.
As an audience member and as a donor, you make our work possible. You understand that even a popular hit like The Jungle Book does not pay all the bills — not without the support of our individual contributors. This year, we need to raise almost $5 million of our $14 million operating budget. Most of these contributions — nearly $4 million — will come from people like you who value the exceptional theatre we produce.
Please help us continue our award-winning work by making your Annual Fund gift today at huntingtontheatre.org/thankyou.
