Thank you for visiting our site! This year, Carpe Diem Theater is launching a campaign to raise $10,000 and we need your support.
Founded in 2011, we have been creating opportunities for high-quality education in theater, arts leadership, and collaboration for more than a decade. One of our core principles is accessibility; we believe that the arts are a powerful tool for growth and expression, and financial status should not be a barrier between children and quality arts experiences.
Since assuming leadership of Carpe Diem in the fall of 2020, we have committed ourselves to keeping our Summer Camp tuition nearly half the cost of other theater summer camps in the Capital District. Because of your generosity, we've been able to additionally accomplish the following:
Donations from you, our friends in the community, are the only reason we’ve been able to expand our offerings and create these valuable learning opportunities. At a time when arts funding is dwindling and school programs are in jeopardy, we recognize our responsibility to the community we serve is more important than ever.
Because our programs serve more than 100 students and their families from 14 or more school districts every year, your donation will ultimately have a far-reaching impact in the Capital District. The funds raised throughout this campaign go directly back to the aforementioned programs, so that we may offer them in perpetuity.
If a direct donation is not possible today and you would like to explore other ways of getting involved with Carpe Diem Theater, please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org. We are so grateful for your support, whether you are new to our work or one of our long-standing partners. We could not make such an impact on the Capital District without your generosity.
WITH MUCH GRATITUDE,
Alexandra van den Heever, Executive Director
Brady Walsh, Artistic Director

A gift at this level can provide a week’s worth of snacks for our campers, the cost of our Staff’ s uniforms, or the cost of scripts for our entire Carpe Diem Kids cast! Support at this level provides for large annual expenses and enables CDT to invest back into our families in significant ways.
A gift at this level helps mitigate many of our operating expenses, such as video recording our mainstage productions, sponsoring off-season events, and maintaining our props/costumes/set storage!
