New York Deaf Theatre's programs are supported, in part, by public funds from the New York City Department of Cultural Affairs.

New York Deaf Theatre's programs are made possible by the New York State Council on the Arts with the support of Governor Andrew M. Cuomo and the New York State Legislature.   

New York Deaf Theatre's success depends on the generosity of our donors.  Help us continue to make great, accessible theatre together! 


Donate to NYDT

When you donate to New York Deaf Theatre, you are supporting our ongoing work with Deaf and hard of hearing theatre artists in the New York City area, and your donation helps to provide them a creative and artistic home where they are the number one priority. With your help, NYDT can continue to create theatre that gives more opportunities for Deaf artists and provides a cultural home for the Deaf community to see their own lives and experiences reflected on stage as a key part of the vibrant fabric of New York City’s theatre community.

New York Deaf Theatre, Ltd. is a 501(c)(3) not-for-profit organization, and all donations are tax-deductible to the extent permitted by law.
