The Women's Voices Fund enables our Theatre Company to commission, workshop and produce new plays by women and is now a national model for female-centric theatre fundraising, as well as one of the largest at $800,000 and counting.

2015 marks the 10th anniversary of the endowment fund, which has enabled the production of 26 plays by women (including six world premieres), 16 commissioned female playwrights and the hiring of 20 female directors at the Theatre Company.

Contributors to the fund are invited to meet and converse with the women who benefit from the fund as well as the Theatre Company artistic staff at events throughout the season, including the Colorado New Play Summit every year.

Special thanks to our current donors!
