In 2014, we received a challenge grant from the Clowes Fund to raise money for a new set shop. We launched our first ever online campaign and asked folks to give $15 in honor of NEYT’s 15th season. The mentors and alumni led the charge reaching out to their friends, families, and neighbors.
This year, we’ll use the funds to build an extension to our current set shop. We raised $32,000, which was matched with a $30,000 grant from the Clowes Fund.
The Clowes Fund, a family foundation, seeks to enhance the common good by encouraging organizations and projects that help to build a just and equitable society, create opportunities for initiative, foster creativity and the growth of knowledge, and promote the appreciation of the natural environment.
