100% of the dollars that ATC receives are directed back into supporting their work, rather than being paid to anyone as a profit. It also means that we are "owned" by the community, governed by a Board of Trustees, and we exist to serve that community through our plays, education programs, and accessibility initiatives.
How vital are donations?
They're essential! One of the founding precepts is that ticket prices must be kept within reach of all members of the community. Revenues from ticket sales are not meant to cover total operating costs. Roughly 65% of ATC's costs are covered by ticket sales, while the remaining 35% must be raised through contributions from individuals, corporations, foundations and grants from government agencies.
