We do this?

Good question! In 1997, our budget was $74,000. Today, it's more than a million dollars. We must seek and secure support from donors in order to "bridge the gap" between rising costs and our desire to keep ticket prices low. Your donation helps us grow to meet the challenges of the future! 

Support of FringeNYC has a tremendous impact on indie theatre. We appreciate it!
