SUPPORT US

For women of color, the opportunity to see themselves authentically represented or to tell their story in their own voice can be exceedingly rare. Thinking In Full Color is looking to change that, but to do so, we need your help. Here's why you should consider making a tax-deductible donation to TIFC today.

WHY TELL WOMEN'S STORIES?

They're Rarely Heard

While we're seeing more minority actors on screen, they still have only less than 15% of leading roles in movies. Also, many depictions of women of color perpetuate racial stereotypes or misogynistic ideas.

They Bring Us Closer Together

It's hard to hate from up-close. We believe that if we listen to those who are not like us to understand their challenges, thoughts and feelings, we can learn to act more compassionately toward them.

They Are Important

Our women take on huge issues that need to be discussed like immigration, sexual assault, mental health, poverty, war, politics and justice.

They're Great Stories

These days it seems everything is a reboot or a remake -- and audiences are hungry for original stories. Our talented women will make you laugh and cry, and tell you tales you'll never forget.

HOW CAN MY GIFT HELP?

Make Programming More Accessible

Every year, we are approached by schools, libraries, festivals, nonprofits and community centers who want us to perform for them but have little to no budget.

With your donation, we can lower program costs or even completely gratis performances for these groups while still paying our actresses and writers.

Get Women Paid

We pride ourselves on creating paid work opportunities for actress, writers and other WOC artists.

With your donation, we can support women artists who want to express themselves and pursue their dreams while still providing for themselves and their families.

Change the World

While most of our work is artistic or educational in nature, our impact is primarily social.

With your donation, we can continue educating audiences about the need for diversity in the media, cultural exchange and racial harmony. Eventually, we hope our work can create new compassion on a large scale and even create social change.

Create New Artistic Opportunities

We are continually searching for ways to empower woman-identified artists of color outside of the theater.

With your donation, we can organize concerts or curate art shows. We can also host workshops and classes for women artists looking to improve their skills.

Engage More Young Minds

While most people know us for our big annual show, the majority of our time is spent performing at colleges and universities.

With your donation, we can keep the engine running on our educational touring program -- literally. Your gift can help pay for travel, meals, administrative costs and even artist stipends.

Pay the Bills

When it comes down to it, running an organization is costly, hard work. And it's even harder when you're a minority woman.

With your donation, you can help us cover all the little costs that often bog down arts companies in their most tender stages of growth, including: taxes, accounting fees, website costs, office supplies, travel expenses, group memberships, merchandise and more.

Your donation can help us...
