Part of the Educational Theatre Association’s vision
is to make theatre education available to students at all levels of
learning. Although many of our activities are self-sustaining, we choose
to operate some programs at a loss simply because they are so important
to our mission. Your generous contribution will help support EdTA’s
Your tax deductible gift will provide a valuable theatre experience to our members, students, and educators.
You may support EdTA through the following campaigns:
Send a troupe to Festival
The annual Thespian Festival, held every June at the University of
Nebraska-Lincoln, is the premier high school theatre experience. This
weeklong event hosts more than 2,500 students and teachers. Festival is
expensive, and many Thespian troupes that would benefit greatly from
Festival are never able to attend. Your donation will go directly to
sending a troupe to Festival.
General scholarship fund
Each year EdTA and its chapters award more than $150,000 in merit
scholarship funds to college-bound theatre students intending to major
in communication or the performing arts. These fields include theatre,
film, speech, radio and television, broadcasting, music, or dance. We’d
like to do more for theatre educators and Thespians everywhere. You can help!
Planned giving: The EdTA Legacy Circle
By remembering EdTA in your will or designating EdTA as a beneficiary
of your whole life insurance policy, you make a gift that will have a
lasting impact on the future of educational theatre.
