The Generous Ten


It all started when…

When someone asked to volunteer to see our show. They were in a tough financial situation but really wanted to see our show, Time Stands Still. They hoped that volunteering would be a way to do so. And then we realized that one of the best things we could do was to offer people the opportunity to engage with our work - at no charge to them. The Generous Ten project was born.

What is “the Generous Ten”?

It’s a program that enables people, no matter their situation to come and participate in DIY Theatre’s shows and programs. No questions asked. Specifically,

  • We set aside at least 10 seats per run of a show

  • With fundraising support, we aim to set aside 10% of our show’s seats in the future

  • As a stretch goal, we aim to raise $10,000 to create new engaging shows and programs

How can I be part of the Generous TEN?

  • You can send us an email at with subject The Generous Ten - and we can put a seat aside for you.
