The NEC mission to present live theater performance to a culturally diverse audience that is often under served supports community education and economic goals by providing it with a theatrical outlet that:
- tells the cultural history
- provides a place of community pride of place
- demonstrates the tools and methods of achieving a better future
This mission has been supported by grants, sponsorships, workshop fees and ticket sales. Workshop fees and ticket sales only provide a very small percentage of the funds needed to reach our mission goals. As a non-profit organization that serves an under-served community, NEC finds it imperative to keep workshop fees and ticket prices affordable.
Therefore NEC reaches out to corporations, and foundations as the primary source of funding for its mission. NEC works mutually with corporations, foundations and other sponsors to achieve both NEC and sponsor community and cultural missions. For example sponsors whose community focus is education may sponsored our in the class room programs.
Please contact us and we will work together to keep theater that serves the NEC community alive while show casing sponsor goals.
