Ma-yi Theatre endowment fund


Since its founding in 1989, Ma-Yi Theater Company has earned a reputation as the nation’s premier Asian American theater company. To uphold our high standards of artistic excellence and ensure the growth of Ma-Yi Theater Company for many more years to come, a very generous donor helped us launch the Ma-Yi Theater Company Endowment Fund. We successfully raised $1,050,000 by January 2010. Thank you for helping us reach our goal!

Our anonymous donor has issued a Challenge Grant, and will match every gift, dollar for dollar. When you give to the Endowment Fund, your donation is automatically doubled! Please be as generous as you can. Interest from this endowment will enable us to keep bringing you incredible new work from amazing Asian American artists.

It’s not too late to be a part of this monumental opportunity! Please make checks payable to Ma-Yi Theater Company (Memo: Endowment) and mail to:
Ma-Yi Theater Company
520 Eighth Avenue, Suite 309
New York, NY 10018.
