Like most nonprofit performing arts groups, ticket sales account for less than a third of Teatro Visión's operating and programmatic expenses. That's why we rely on the generosity of our community to sustain our work.
This year, we are honored to have support from the following funders and many more...
For the second straight year, the City of San José Office of Cultural Affairs has a awarded a "take pART" grant to support our production of MACARIO. We're proud to be a longtime partner with the City, and we value all they do to nurture arts and culture in San José.
Another longtime Teatro partner is the Castellano Family Foundation, which supports local organizations that positively impact the lives of Latinos in Santa Clara County. We are honored to have been awarded an unrestricted grant to help expand our capacity in FY2014-15.
A recent merger between Silicon Valley First Act and the Arts Council of Silicon Valley resulted in Silicon Valley Creates, the leading private entity for igniting investment and engagement in arts and creativity in Silicon Valley. SVC has awarded Teatro with a Local Arts Grant to support general operations, and we're excited to be part of their first "NextGen" Cohort, a grant program supporting investment in new audience development.
We were thrilled to receive our first grant award from the National Association of Latino Arts and Culture (NALAC), the nation's leading nonprofit organization exclusively dedicated to the promotion, advancement, development, and cultivation of the Latino arts field. NALAC is supporting our production of MACARIO.
In the world of Silicon Valley corporate philanthropy, Applied Materials stands alone in terms of generosity and diversity. They have continued their long-standing support of our work with a grant to support MACARIO.
New to our family of partners is Sabor del Valle, an annual fundraising event showcasing Latino vintners and chefs designed to support local organizations that provide services to Latino youth. Teatro was a proud beneficiary of their August 2014 event.
Last, but not least, we are excited to partner with the Valley Medical Center Foundation for the second straight year to use MACARIO as an avenue toward engaging our patrons around issues of food justice and providing them with resources to access healthy foods in their community.
We invite you to visit the websites of these fantastic organizations to learn more about their missions, histories, and initiatives. Together, they are helping art and culture thrive in San José and Silicon Valley!
