Expanding Access to
Theatre in Schools

Every Child in America Deserves Access
to Theatre in Their School

The Educational Theatre Foundation aims to make that a reality.

Our Mission

The Educational Theatre Foundation (ETF) is the fundraising arm of the Educational Theatre Association (EdTA).

ETF’s mission is to provide all students equitable access to quality theatre education. The Foundation achieves this mission by providing financial support to programs that expand access to and participation in school theatre for underserved and marginalized communities and funding theatre programs’ growth and sustainability.

Our Programs

ETF’s programs offer a wide range for support to middle and high school theatre programs. From introducing sustainable theatre to schools that have never been able to fund it, to using school theatre to further the conversation surrounding racial equity, to supporting growing existing theatre programs and recognizing student achievement, ETF fulfills its mission by expanding access and championing success through its various programs.
