TCG Impact Report: 58 Years of Advancing the Theatre Field 

09-30-2019 15:15

As the national service organization for the professional not-for-profit theatre, we think and advocate on behalf of our 500+ member theatres from 48 states with budgets ranging from $50 thousand to $50 million. As a result of TCG’s steadfast support of the national theatre field, theatres in turn bring tremendous value to their communities.

TCG continues to list member satisfaction and fieldwide impact as key drivers of success. For the 14th straight year, TCG has maintained an organizational membership renewal rate of 93% or greater.

In addition, TCG provides a place of connectivity for over 10,000 individual members, grantees, and business partners. With its 58 years of service, TCG has become an irreplaceable well of history, knowledge, relationships, and innovative solutions that benefit generations of theatre makers and their teams.

In the spirit of storytelling, some of TCG’s impact stories included our National Conference and Fall Forum on Governance, which brought more than 1,000 people from across the country to St. Louis and New York City, respectively; our Equity, Diversity & Inclusion Initiative to transform the national theatre field; our convening of the first Theatres of Color (TOC) Gathering in 15 years, with representatives from 41 TOCs; a banner year
at TCG Books, with more than $2.2 million in sales, including our 16th and 17th Pulitzer-winning books, The Cost of Living by Martyna Majok and Fairview by Jackie Sibblies Drury, respectively; research for and about the U.S. nonprofit theatre field in the form of Theatre Facts 2017; federal-level advocacy that is helping sustain funding for the National Endowment for the Arts, which this year saw a $3 million increase; and  approximately $2 million in grantmaking, scholarships, and subsidies that supported leadership development, as well as audience- and community-development strategies.

TCG’s work around organizational fiscal responsibility and transparency has earned us the highest standards by charitable ratings organizations: Four Star Charity by Charity Navigator and the 2019 Platinum Seal of Transparency by GuideStar.

TCG will continue to be a space for us to strengthen, nurture, and promote the theatre ecology. And we can count on our  members and
thousands of practitioners as part of this global theatre movement.

On behalf of everyone at TCG, we want to thank you for all your continued support. We never lose sight that we could not do this work without you.
