Because SOTA encompasses art disciplines that require expensive physical resources, a direct gift of materials or services can make a real difference in the quality of education we can offer our students. At FoSOTA, in-kind gifts might include the use of professional performance space; musical instruments; staging, theatrical costumes and theater props; and equipment for photography, filmmaking or digital imaging. In-kind gifts are accepted on a case-by-case basis, the primary criterion being that the gifts further the mission of FoSOTA. Questions about gift acceptance or policies should be directed to firstname.lastname@example.org. Once approved, return the In-Kind Donation Form with your item(s).
