New Plays Fund
The New Plays Fund supports MTC national new play awards, and the commissioning, development and production of new plays by American Playwrights through our New Play Program.
This fund provides full and partial scholarships to MTC Summer Camps for students who demonstrate a clear financial need. MTC partners with community organizations in Marin City and the Canal District to identify potential scholarship recipients. Each gift of $1,200 allows one student to attend Camp.
Funds for MTC's Future
Funds to ensure Marin Theatre Company’s future include the Endowment Fund, Artistic & Operating Reserve Fund, and Poutiatine Fund for Leadership.
Artistic & Operating Reserve Fund
The Artistic & Operating Reserve Fund is a MTC board-designated fund that was established in 2010 thanks to a generous grant from Board Member Christopher B. Smith. It allows MTC to take advantage of artistic opportunities that it would not otherwise be able to afford; to sustain operations through delays in payment of committed funding; to accept reimbursable contracts and grants without jeopardizing ongoing operations; to create an internal line of credit to manage cash flow; and to generate investment income.
Poutiatine Fund for Leadership
The Poutiatine Fund For Leadership is a MTC board-designated fund that enables the Board to enhance the compensation packages of MTC's staff leadership, including increased salary, bonus pay, increased health benefits, increased vacation time, and housing subsidies.
Established with an initial grant from former Board President Herb Boyer, this permanently restricted fund supports general operations of MTC through the generation of investment income.
