Angels are donors who support BC/EFA’s vital work with unrestricted gifts of $1,000 or more during a single fiscal year. These gifts are especially important because they provide us with a dependable core of donors whose gifts are not related to the purchase of merchandise or event tickets. These funds go directly into our pool of grant-making dollars, which are, in turn, distributed to HIV/AIDS service organizations nationwide, as well as to the numerous social service and housing programs of The Actors Fund.
In Broadway lingo, an "angel" is an investor in a theatre production. In exchange for that financial investment, angels are traditionally guaranteed the best seats in the house for the shows their dollars make possible. The Angels Campaign creates a similar tradition for its supporters, granting BC/EFA Angels VIP status, along with a host of associated benefits.
In addition to The Angels Campaign, significant funds are generated through various BC/EFA annual and one-time special events, such as The Easter Bonnet Competition, Gypsy of the Year, The Broadway Flea Market & Grand Auction, Broadway Bares and Broadway Backwards. Considerable financial support also comes to us through our Care-Tix and CareCard programs. Contributions from all these sources are vital to BC/EFA.
