Thank You for Supporting eTc!

Bay Area Educational Theater Company opened its doors 21 years ago. Everyone involved in eTc programs — from actors to volunteers who create costumes and sets to stage crew — receives the benefits of participating in a high quality theater program that nurtures their creativity and talent, instills confidence and self-esteem, and fosters positive personal growth. Did we mention that theater also breeds a real sense of community?

Bay Area eTc is a non-profit 501(c)(3) organization that relies on contributions from individuals, corporations, foundations, and government agencies for support of its projects and programs. All contributions are tax-deductible to the extent of the law. Our non-profit tax identification number: 94-3249816 .

Our programming is sustained, in part, through earned revenue from ticket sales and participant registration fees. Donors play a significant role as well, allowing us to maintain a standard of excellence in our programs and helping us offer a generous scholarship program and provide subsidized tickets for underprivileged groups.

Your gift enables us to continue producing high quality theater and education programs that inspire and enrich our community. Thank you for your support!
