Houses on the Moon General Fund
Houses on the Moon Theater Company exists to dispel ignorance and isolation through the public sharing of the untold story. Through creative workshops, original performances, and post-show discussions with community partners, we have helped thousands of audience members make meaningful connections. Without your support we could not give voice to the untold story and our mission would go unfulfilled. We hope you'll consider making a tax-deductible donation to Houses on the Moon Theater Company.
Mauricio Leyton Award and Fund

Mauricio Leyton was a Chilean born, talented actor and a beloved, committed member of Houses on the Moon. He was a natural leader and activist, dedicated to helping both individuals and communities grow and come together. He tragically passed away December 1st, 2013 of an aortic aneurysm. Following his unexpected death, we created this award and grant to honor his memory. The Leyton Award is granted annually to an individual or organization that champions the unheard voice through community service.

Mauricio believed in humanity. He believed people were inherently good and capable of change. He believed in the power of kindness and love. He lived joyfully. He always took the time to listen, reflect and respond. He saw and heard everyone. He looked at the world with open eyes and saw potential everywhere. He was a motivator. He was a champion of the unheard voice.

The Leyton Award:

Each year Houses on the Moon will present this award along with $1,000 cash to an individual or not-for-profit organization that champions the unheard voice. The monetary element is to be used for the individual or organization to continue doing the work they do within communities of need.

The grant is funded by a percentage of the proceeds from the Houses on the Moon annual fund-raising Amplify Benefit and by private donors.

Past Recipients include:

Elaine Lane, Founder of David’s Shoes

Susan Goodwillie, Founder of The Creative Solution Symposium Ryder Farms

Libertas Center for Human Rights at Elmhurst Hospital

Judy Sennesh, Board member of PFLAG NYC and Founder of TransFamilies Project

Lenni Benson, Founder and Executive Director of The Safe Passage Project

Ticket Subsidy Fund
Part of Houses on the Moon's mission is to provide accessible ticketing in order to help different communities come together. We launched our ticket subsidy program in 2017 in order to increase the number of people who would be able to attend our off-Broadway productions. Since then, we subsidize 1/3rd of our entire inventory to be distributed through our community parters.
Build With Us!
Houses on the Moon is raising $30,000 before June 10th for two critical programs that will make our work more accessible AND support new artists! We invite you to BUILD WITH US by supporting the following HOTM initiatives:

Ticket Subsidy Program for SHARED SENTENCES: Houses on the Moon provides one third of all tickets for free or at highly subsidized rates to community partners and individuals who don’t often experience theater due to financial or geographic barriers. Your donations will help us raise $20,000 for our ticket subsidy program and make SHARED SENTENCES accessible and affordable for all.

Architect Fellowship Program: This fall, Houses on the Moon will launch public applications for our new Architect Fellowship Program, a year-long residency supporting two artists as they create and develop new work that embodies our mission of amplifying unheard voices. With your help, we aim to raise $10,000 to support this exciting program and the creation of vibrant new work.
Amplify 2022
Houses on the Moon's annual AMPLIFY Gala is an opportunity to highlight the work of amazing people who are unifying communities through the amplification of unheard stories. This year, we are thrilled to honor Jane Dubin and Aaliytha Stevens as our special guests. Their influence in the theater world has been unparalleled and we are proud to celebrate them on Oct. 3rd. Additionally, the Mauricio Leyton Award will be given to Serena Ligouri of New Hour for Women and Children for her incredible work supporting women and their families in their reentry from prison. We are so grateful for your support of these incredible women, and for Houses on the Moon Theater Company!
