Support the Formerly Incarcerated People's Performance Project
FIPPP is a program under Solo Performance Conservatory, a fiscally sponsored project of Social Good Fund
Our recent fall festival sparked generosity in some of our theater-goers who wanted to support the work of FIPPP into the future, including a charitable gift from the Ronald Whittier Family Foundation. Other major donors include the Armstrong-McKay Foundation, Mona Dale Lawrence, Victoria Podesta. We also recently received a grant from the Alameda County Arts Fund and a CA$H Sustains grant from Theater Bay Area! We would love to see others join our FIPPP community of supporters!
*$3,000 will support a FIPPP performer for an entire year!
A gift for FIPPP allows us to grow. We plan to bring our current performers back and to expand our programming to bring additional formerly incarcerated performers and family members to our stage sharing their compelling stories. We also want to continue to provide reduced cost, sliding scale show tickets, as well as donated seats to our shows so that no one will be turned away from a Formerly Incarcerated People's Performance Project show due to a lack of funds.
Here is how you can help: You can make a one-time or monthly donation to FIPPP to support our performers, directors, and our work. Your support allows us to secure a rehearsal space, pay our tech and crew and support our performers with a small stipend. All donations by individuals are tax-deductible to the fullest extent of the law. Again, we thank you for your support!
"Hearing the voices of formerly incarcerated individuals is a must. The overall impact will continue to chip away at the inhumane injustices of the incarcerated and broader community. It is time, and society as a whole benefits." - Freddy Lee Johnson
