Without ticket income, SBTS must rely on your donations and foundation grants to underwrite 100% of the festival.
How much would make a difference?
It’s easy. If we received $100 from 3500 people (roughly 1/6 of our audience) we’d make our $350,000 goal. Better yet, $1,000 from 350 attendees and we’re in the black.
Please show your support this season by becoming a member of our BIG FISH FAMILY. (Deadline for Festival Program recognition is May 20.)
