We depend on Sustaining Membership dues from organizations and individuals for 20-25% of our budget, reaching out to other funding sources to bring more support to our sector collectively. Sustaining Members provide valuable support for ongoing operations, and help the Alliance continue to expand program delivery. We are pleased to have members at all budget sizes, geographies, and types, representing a broad cross section of Minnesota’s performing arts.
Effective October 1, 2021, all performing artists and organizations will be members of the Minnesota Theater Alliance simply by joining on our website. Artists and organizations will have the option to join as Sustaining Members at the suggested pay-what-you-can tiers, or join simply as a member with no financial donation. We understand that the financial life of the performing arts continuously ebbs and flows, and we trust that our Sustaining Members will give generously when they are able, that is why we have simplified the rates and provided lots of flexibility.
