Thank You to all our wonderful supporters!

Thank you for visiting Ma-Yi Theater Company, and believing in our mission of diversity in theater and the promotion of Asian American culture and playwriting. Our productions and those of our playwrights span the globe and bring cultural understanding and new ideas to the world. For the past 28 years we’ve depended on small businesses and open hearts and want to do our part to show our thanks. Our April 24th Gala will showcase the many hotels and restaurants and corporations who believe in us. Our Honorees and Committe Members and Board work tirelessly to secure the gifts that make up our live and silent auctions. We hope you’ll be able to attend, and please consider making a donation or contribution like the many friends listed below. Visit for more info.

In addition to foundations and corporations, Ma-Yi Theater Company receives support for our programs from the following government agencies and leaders:

National Endowment for the Arts
Department of Cultural Affairs – NYC

New York State Council on the Arts


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. Through our anonymous donor who issued a Challenge Grant, and matched every gift, we successfully raised $1,050,000 by January 2010.

Thank you for helping us reach our goal! Interest from this endowment will enable us to keep bringing you incredible new work from amazing Asian American artists.
