DONATION CAMPAIGNS
Annual Campaign FY20
The York operates on a $2.1M budget which is only achievable with gifts from our generous patrons. Any gift given to the Annual Campaign is an unrestricted donation that helps The York cover operational costs to continue our mission of bringing musicals to life as well as the great programming we produce all year long.
Musical Theatre Training Program (MTTP)
Each summer and winter, The York hosts its Musical Theatre Training Program (MTTP), bringing students from all over the country and the world to study with the industry's top artists. By supporting MTTP, you will be giving an inspirational opportunity to a gifted young student..
Developmental Reading Series Donation Fund
The York presents more than thirty readings of new musicals a year, giving writers, performers, and audiences the opportunity to see musicals come to life right off the page. Give to our Developmental Reading Series and help continue the future of musical theatre!
NEO (new emerging outstanding)
Each year, four new, emerging, and outstanding musical theatre writers or teams are selected for The York's NEO program. After a launch concert featuring work by all four, each writer or team is given a fully-funded reading of a work in progress. By giving to NEO, you are helping The York to support, mentor, and showcase the next generation of great musical theatre writing talent.
Mildred Kayden Fund
Mildred Kayden was a gifted composer whose musicals Ionescopadeand Storyville were seen on The York's stage; she was also passionate about educating younger generations of music and theatre artists. A generous donation has been made to seed a fund in her memory to provide scholarships to MTTP students and to support emerging female musical theatre writers as part of the NEO program. By giving to the Mildred Kayden Fund, you are keeping her passion and legacy alive.
Sally Smith Fund
Sally Smith was a devoted patron and longtime board member of The York who preferred to make her contributions behind the scenes, as part of the technical crew in the company's early days. This fund established in her memory helps The York to cover the costs for all of the things that happen backstage for the show to happen: set design and construction, lighting, sound, and much more. Giving to the Sally Smith Fund helps with all of these things that are necessary but often overlooked in the creation of musical theatre.
Wells Fargo Employee Giving
Wells Fargo is a corporate sponsor of The York Theatre Company. If you are an employee of Wells Fargo, and you support the performing arts and musical theatre education, this is where your donation can make a difference!
The Austin Graham Memorial Fund
The York honors the memory of longtime York Theatre Company board member and supporter Austin Graham.

Austin Andrew Graham, Jr., age 89, peacefully passed away at his home in New York City surrounded by his family on Friday, December 28, 2018. He served as a Lieutenant in the Navy during the Korean War and was honorably discharged in January 1955. Austin graduated from Fordham University and was a Merrill Lynch Stock Broker with a career spanning over six decades.
