Contributors to New Dramatists

New Dramatists’ playwright development program is completely supported by contributed income. Generous contributions from a wide range of individual, foundation, corporate, government, and legacy donors help New Dramatists fulfill its mission of investing in an ever-evolving company of playwrights, who, in turn, enrich the field with their dynamic, creative voices.

The playwrights, board of directors, and staff of New Dramatists extend our deepest thanks to all those listed below for their support.

This list reflects contributions made between January 1, 2020 and February 15, 2021. Every effort is made to ensure this list is complete and accurate. If you have questions, additions, or changes, please contact Development Director Tiffany Baran at (212)-757-6960 x. 211, or email her at @email.
