Forging Ahead Campaign

Over 800 individual donors helped us raise $247,448 toward the Forging Ahead Campaign! Live Arts is powered by YOU.

*This total includes a $78,800 PPP forgivable loan from the SBA.

FORGE WITH US

Thanks to the incredible generosity of the Charlottesville community, Live Arts has been able to continue to “forge theater and community” during this prolonged pandemic thanks to over. Our workshops and summer camps moved online. Our summer teen musical moved outside. And our free 30in30 theater retrospective moved more than 13,000 viewers from all across the country every day in May.

As we prepare to launch our re-imagined 30th anniversary season in September, we thank you for your support in closing the last piece of our COVID-19-related income gap. Your year-end gift enables us to start the next year strong and continue to be a source of personal connection, inspiration, and hope during Charlottesville’s recovery.
