Thank You On This #GivingTuesday

Friends,

On behalf of our community of students, teaching artists, designers, and scholars, please accept our deep gratitude for your support of EYTE’s urgent programming. Your role is essential. We are withstanding 2020’s insurmountable challenges because of your commitment to our mission. 

The work continues.

On Black Friday, EYTE raised a total of $2,500! We are on our way to reaching our end-of year goal of $8,000.00. 

What’s ahead for us? What will your help support?

  • The Trauma of Covid, An Oral History Project, in collaboration with the Elizabeth Public Library, Special Collections

The pandemic is wreaking havoc on learning and schools. Trauma-informed arts education, and the kind of social-emotional learning EYTE centers, can help students move through this moment and serve as a model for transformative online spaces. 

This is a critical period. Your participation matters. 

For #GivingTuesday, join us as a donor.  You have a tremendous part to play. For those who have already donated: You stepped-up in meeting the moment. Continue your role. Share this plea by forwarding this email to those who are ready to step into their accompliceship. Remind them that together we can make a real difference. 

Thank you for investing in us.

In solidarity,

Theo Perkins
Executive & Artistic Director

Elizabeth Youth Theater Ensemble,

A qualified organization of the New Jersey Cultural Trust​

The Elizabeth Youth Theater Ensemble (EYTE) is proud to announce its designation as a qualified organization as defined by the rules of the New Jersey Cultural Trust. The official date of qualification was on September 29, 2020 – but what does this mean?

Besides having the ability to affix this designation on printed materials, advertising, and
solicitations, it ensures that EYTE is a contributor to a healthy, thriving nonprofit cultural
industry in the state of New Jersey. Most importantly, simply put, it puts EYTE in a
better position to continue providing the programs and events that have brought us to
where we are today and ultimately down a sustainable future.

We look forward to continuing the work that has brought us to this point with a very
special thank you to the students, teachers, volunteers, artists, and partnering
organizations that have believed in our mission.

Please join us in celebrating this unique achievement, and a special thanks to the New
Jersey Cultural Trust for their recognition.
