    Taking Care of Our Own

    In honor of the 36th annual Helen Hayes Awards, generous community donors, foundations, and the board of directors of theatreWashington have pledged a contribution of $25,000 to the Taking Care Fund, to be matched by the community. At a time with much uncertainty, one thing is clear: the #dctheatre community is strong, creative, generous, and resilient. We need your support now to raise the $25,000 in matching funds.
