"One of the finest not-for-profits in New York City."

How to Give


We’re very proud that artists at all stages of their careers call Vineyard Theatre their home.  For thirty years, it has been our goal to give adventurous artists a safe space to create exhilarating, original theatre. The generous support of our community makes our work possible.

We are grateful for leadership support from individuals and institutions in our community including The Andrew W. Mellon Foundation, The Open Society Foundations, The Shubert Foundation, The Harold & Mimi Steinberg Charitable Trust, Bloomberg Philanthropies and our Board of Directors; public funds are generously provided by the New York City Department of Cultural Affairs, the New York State Council on the Arts and the National Endowment for the Arts.

Please consider playing your part at The Vineyard with a tax-deductible gift to help sustain our mission. Every dollar truly counts! Please contact us at development@vineyardtheatre.org if you woud like more information or with any questions about our recognition of your gift; or click HERE to make a secure donation of any amount online.
