Carte Blanche donors enjoying a party at the Provincetown Tennessee Williams Theater Festival

Why Donate?

Make yourself feel good! Since 2006, our donors have made a direct impact on the worldwide reputation of America's playwright, and expanded his work across the globe with ten world premiere Tennessee Williams plays, over 100 innovative performances of his lesser-known works, and dozens of new works inspired by our Festival's mission.

People like you, who believe in the power of live performance – and in the good work we're doing here in Provincetown – have given us the means to bring the Festival to life. We operate with a modest budget with very low overhead costs, so your dollar goes far when you give to the Festival.

Tickets only cover about a third of our costs, and we like to keep our ticket prices accessible for everyone.

Individual donations are the most significant funding source we have. Join the growing list of those who have made a contribution. 

Your gift is fully tax-deductible under the rules of charitable giving in your state. We are a 501(c)(3) non-profit corporation.


Sustaining Donors

If you donate $500 or more during the calendar year, you're considered a sustaining donor.

Our sustaining donors are invited to exclusive events during the festival, such as a special private brunch, exclusive meetings with Festival artists, wine tastings, and celebrity cocktail events with the likes of Olympia Dukakis, John Guare, Anne Jackson,Eli Wallach, Alison Fraser, Michael Urie and Betty Buckley.

Thank you to the people named below, for gifts great and small, for loose change and large checks, for believing as we do that the enduring work of Tennessee Williams can change lives, the heartfelt generosity of our friends inspires us to do our best. Your gifts revive a worn-out word with personal significance… support.

"Stella for star!"



So chimes Blanche DuBois in Williams' indelible play, A Streetcar Named Desire.

A donor loyalty program: The Stella Circle.


Stella Kowalski's selflessness and nurturing instinct are our inspiration for this exclusive group of donors that are the very source of our strength. Together with our friendly Board members, you too can help ensure the Festival's sustainability.

To become a member of the exclusive Stella Circle, pledge $2,500 in cash donations per year for three or more years.

A one-time gift is always welcome, but a longer commitment gives us strength. Up until now, only the Board of Directors and a few key donors have pledged multi-year support. Our Board members give an incredible $5,000 per year, plus time, energy and governance. The Stella Circle is designed to create a committed group of mult-year donors that want to be major players in our success without the extra commitments of being on a board. It's also meant to be a social group, with an exclusive Stella Party and Festival "inside information" at various times throughout the year.

In non-profits, as in life, we all need to know who we can count on... You can become a steadfast partner of the Festival by joining the Stella Circle.

Benefits include

  • a private reception during the Festival
  • invitations to meet Festival artists
  • a membership pin
  • an autographed book from Festival curator and author David Kaplan
  • a Festival shirt or a gift from the gift shop

Pledge today by sending in all or part of your first $2500 pledge. You will be contacted by our staff to coordinate your annual pledge commitment, and to choose which free gifts you wish to receive.
