WHY CONTRIBUTE?

Most solvent theater companies in the United States rely on foundation grants to fund their projects. Because our work is primarily within the twelve step community, we have chosen not to accept funding from non-alcoholic and non-addicts in the spirit of Tradition Seven. Though we are not a Twelve-Step group nor affiliated with any group or service organization, Jackie B. and Recovery Works Theater have been inspired by the spiritual principles of these Twelve Step programs. Therefore, in order to be self-supporting, we rely on both box office income and contributions from individuals in recovery.

WHO BENEFITS FROM MY CONTRIBUTION?

Proceeds from all productions, whether on tour or at home, benefit local non-profit organizations that serve the recovery community. Examples of presenting partners in the past have included numerous intergroups and YPAA committees, as well as the Castro Country Club/SF AIDS Foundation, San Francisco Gratitude Center, among others.

ARE CONTRIBUTIONS TAX-DEDUCTIBLE?

No. We currently do not have the resources to incorporate as a 501(c)3 charitable organization, however we have identified a non-profit fiscal sponsor and hope by 2020 charitable donations to Recovery Works Theater will be tax-deductible.


OUR ACTORS WOULD LIKE TO THANK THE INDIVIDUALS WHO HAVE SUPPORTED OUR WORK OVER THE LAST TEN YEARS:

My favorite time is right before the play starts. That’s when I’m feeling peaceful and calm, and everything is as it should be. There is a joyousness that’s hard to describe when I’m working on one of Jackie’s plays. I’ve been in three, and this last run has been the most fulfilling of all. Performing in Atlanta, I had the clear knowledge that we were telling a very important story, one that needs telling. It was a humbling experience. I wasn’t so much performing for the audience as sharing a story. After the last show on Friday, every single person that came out of the theater had a tear in their eyes and a big smile on their face. I am deeply grateful for this opportunity to practice Love and Service.

Being in this play and having this experience will go down as one of the greatest moments of my life. It was fun, exciting, amazing, challenging, enlightening, educational, exhilarating, and emotional. I am so honored, privileged, and grateful that I had the opportunity to be a part of something so wonderful.

Performing in “Our Experience Has Taught Us” helped me better understand how crucial the Twelve Traditions are to recovery communities far and wide. More importantly, I felt like we were helping members of the A.A. Fellowship, from “Newcomer to Old-Timer,” enjoyably appreciate how and why the Traditions must continue to inform meetings governance...lest we perish!

The joy of living is the theme of A.A.’s Twelfth Step.” As cast and crew, we experienced the joy and felt the joy radiate from the audiences.
