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:
