True Colors’ Ovation Circle Giving Society
A campaign to drive awareness and investment in the work of True Colors.
“The Ovation Circle Giving Society is the lifeblood of True Colors’ long-term sustainability and growth. These generous companies and families from all walks of life invest in our mission to transform our world through bold, diverse theatre.” –Chandra Stephens- Albright, Managing Director
The 2017-2018 season marks True Colors’ 15th anniversary and the launch of its Ovation Circle Giving Society campaign. Throughout the year, the True Colors team will be reaching out to current and prospective society members with opportunities to invest in the work of the company. From production sponsorships, to education scholarships, to operating support, – all of these investments ensure that Atlanta audiences experience True Colors message of our common humanity. Ovation Circle membership levels begin at $1,000 for individuals, and $5,000 for corporations. The campaign goal is $500,000 in support of True Colors’ mission.
The 15th Anniversary season will culminate with the inaugural True Colors Applauds: An Ovation Circle Awards Brunch on June 2, 2018. This non-ticketed, invitation only event will celebrate those who have invested in True Colors, making its accomplishments possible; and will launch True Colors’ next 15 years with exceptional leadership and strong philanthropic support .
True Colors Applauds will bring the 2018 Atlanta Regional August Wilson Monologue Competition finalists to the stage for a special performance, recognize winners of the 2018 True Colors Applauds Awards, and celebrate investors in True Colors’ mission of inclusion and diversity through theatre.
