Give to Golden Thread’s Year-end Appeal
Double Your Gift: Ask your Employer to Match it!
In October 2013, Golden Thread was recognized by the American Theatre Wing, the producers of the Tony’s, for having “articulated a distinctive mission, cultivated an audience, and nurtured a community of artists in ways that strengthen and demonstrate the quality, diversity, and dynamism of American theatre.” If you agree and share such enthusiasm for our work, please make a donation to our fall campaign right now.
Earlier this year, Golden Thread board and staff went through an intensive strategic planning process. Some of you may have participated in the focus group discussions or interviews. With your feedback, we have created a five-year strategic plan that will take us through our twentieth anniversary in 2016 and beyond. You will hear more about our strategic goals in the days to come, and more importantly, you will experience the difference this level of planning and concentrated effort will bring to the company.
Golden Thread is unique in the level of support and resources we invest in developing and producing plays that present alternative perspectives of the Middle East. In creating an artistic home for vital Middle Eastern American voices, we challenge the national conversation on the region and its people. Plays like 444 DAYS and URGE FOR GOING offer new ways of experiencing current issues through a personal lens. Plays like RUMI X 7 = TALES FROM THE MASNAVI invite audiences of all ages and backgrounds to re-imagine a vilified religion through their message of universal love. If you value Golden Thread’s adventurous aesthetic and inclusive vision, please consider supporting Golden Thread at this time.
Partner with us in pushing the boundaries of American theatre to make room for Middle Eastern perspectives. Reward artistic courage and visionary leadership. Invest in Golden Thread Productions today!

Tree of Life
A Fund for New Play Development
Golden Thread’s Tree of Life campaign is inspired by the Wishing Trees frequently encountered in the Middle East symbolizing the continuity of life from our ancestors to future generations. An inspiration to the design and story of our 2011 season-opener, Night Over Erzinga, the Tree of Life campaign has evolved into Golden Thread’s Fund for New Play Development offering an opportunity for individual donors to be a part of every world premiere. The 5-foot Tree of Life bearing family names and dedications from donors like you will be on display in the theatre lobby during Golden Thread’s main-stage productions.
Partner with us in bringing untold stories and vital alternative perspectives of the Middle East to the American stage.
Did you know that ticket sales only account for 15% of our income? The rest has to come from grants and your contributions. Your generous support makes our work possible. No amount is too small or too large!Donate Now
Our hardworking staff would love to benefit from your time and skills. Whether it’s two hours or sixty, we can find a way to engage you in our work. Usher at a performance or event, help paint the set of our next play, join us in the office and do a bit of filing or internet research.
Goods and services make excellent donations. Did you just buy a new i-Pad or digital camera? Items like computers, cameras and other digital equipment that you no longer need could become useful office tools. Pro-bono services such as catering, technical support and legal services are a welcome gift. We can even benefit from your Frequent Flyer miles, unused airline tickets and hotel room credits. If you have an extra bedroom in the house, consider hosting a visiting artist. To make an in-kind donation, contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org
