Thanks to the generosity of an anonymous donor, we've launched “The Dollar for Dollar Challenge,” promising to match - DOLLAR FOR DOLLAR - any new, increased or additional gifts made to Blackfriars before June 30th… UP TO $10,000! So if you have NEVER made a donation to Blackfriars Theatre, now’s the perfect time to do so! If you gave $50 last Spring, give $51 this Spring and watch it be magically multiplied! If you’ve already given a donation during the 2017-2018 Season, allow the enormous generosity of this mysterious donor to be transferred onto you and give us a few more of your dollars, which will be doubled!

Now is your chance to double your impact on your local Theatre - your support will not only help us reach our financial goals, ending our year with a responsibly-balanced budget - your donations will set the stage for a successful new Season of theatre, rife with expanded programming, new partnerships, and productions of the highest caliber.

The theatre is the only institution in the world that has been dying for four thousand years and has never succumbed. It requires tough and devoted people to keep it alive.
— John Steinbeck

Charitable contributions are crucial to our ability to provide the type of dynamic storytelling the Rochester community has come to expect from us. In order to strike a balance as a healthy non-profit organization, 25% of our budget must come from donor contributions.  These gifts make it possible for us to provide our audiences with a definitive theatrical experience and give our artists and students the resources they need to create the best possible work with the highest standards of excellence.  Thank you for your generosity and your belief in the arts.
