Inspired by Half the Sky: Turning Oppression into Opportunity for Women Worldwide by Nicholas Kristof and Sheryl WuDunn, WAM Theatre has a double philanthropic mission: producing theatrical events for everyone, with a focus on women theatre artists and/or stories of women and girls, and donating a portion of proceeds from those theatrical events to organizations that work to benefit the lives of women and girls locally and globally. WAM is a strong presence in the community. Our double philanthropic model is working! Our accomplishments include:

  • Over seven years, WAM has DONATED OVER $30,000 to 11 BENEFICIARIES (6 local and 5 internationally).
  • We have provided paid work to more than 200 ARTISTS, 75% OF WHOM ARE WOMEN.
  • WAM’s Education  programs have reached over 150 under-served members of our community.
  • WAM Theatre’s work has been SEEN BY OVER 8,000 PEOPLE.

Together we can use theatre to contribute even more to our creative economy by providing more jobs and higher salaries to our theatre artists. By continuing to develop our audience we are able to make increased donations to organizations that are out there on the front lines working to benefit the lives of women and girls. Our base is solid. We are leaping. We hope you will join us.
