Bring Washingtonians together: The WIT Community Fund
Improv is more than an art form that delights audiences—it’s a craft that connects people, encourages empathy and understanding, and empowers people to be their authentic selves.
Washington Improv Theater transforms lives through our community work, ranging from our after-school programs at Marie Reed Elementary to our work with veterans as part of the Armed Services Arts Partnership.
What is the WIT Community Fund?
The WIT Community Fund is an effort to fund all of our community activities for WIT’s fiscal year 2020. Our goal is to raise $20,000 by Feb. 15, 2020.
What projects does the WIT Community Fund support?
Your gift supports the entirety of our portfolio including our youth work, Improv for All workshops, and our diversity scholarship. We add more engagements on a regular basis. As of Sept. 2019, our projects include:
- After-school programming at Marie Reed Elementary
- Teen workshops at the Kingman Boys and Girls Club
- Workshops with veterans returning to civilian life with the Armed Services Arts Partnership
- Improv for All workshops in all eight wards of DC (including specialized workshops targeted to American Sign Language speakers, people who speak English as a second language, teachers, and more).
How can my gift make an impact?
We have a list of suggested donations which demonstrate the impact your gift has. Each gift to the fund supports the entirety of WIT’s community portfolio.
We want to use improv to help inspire and connect people all over the District. Since our services are provided to the community at no cost, your support is critical toward sustaining our work. Donate today and make Washington, DC a more joyful place.
