NYTE Gets a Couple of Boosts

I just wanted to share a little bit of good news with you today. NYTE (the nonprofit parent of nytheatre.com, indietheater.org, nytheatrecast, and NYTE Small Press) has received two significant grants this month--from the Peg Santvoord Foundation and from the New York State Council on the Arts (NYSCA). Both of these institutions have been providing support for NYTE's programs for several years now, and we are very grateful for their continued confidence in us.

Their support will help us meet, in part, the expenses of operating nytheatre.com and our other websites. They will also help us fund the cost of publishing our projected next volume of our annual play anthology series, "Plays and Playwrights 2009," which is targeted for release next February and will be the 1oth in that series.

Our major institutional funders are invaluable to us, but they are only part of the overall funding picture for NYTE. We are, and always have been, a grassroots organization, and we rely on the support of individuals to fulfill our mission and to grow so that we can provide new and better services to the New York theatre community. Here are a few links to more information about NYTE and how you can join NYSCA and the Peg Santvoord Foundation in supporting our programs:
