Support Us. We Couldn’t Do It Without You!

Donate Money

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!

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.

Give Time

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.

Check out our current Volunteer Opportunities.

Donate In-Kind

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
