FEDORA's Philanthropists


One day to make a world of difference.  

Today is "Giving Tuesday", an opportunity to give back to causes that are close to your heart.

FEDORA strives to bring together different voices to create a culture of cooperation so that, together, we can make a difference to support emerging talent in the performing arts. And so, to celebrate those who contribute to our initiative, we wish to foster a conversation about generosity. Featured below are some of our individual and corporate ambassadors who share their stories, and why they became donors of FEDORA.

In the spirit of Giving Tuesday, why don’t you donate to FEDORA?

With every donation you're helping artists create innovative work for new audiences. Make a donation today and build the stage of tomorrow:
