OP Family Initiative
Giving Thanks for our Extended Family

Happy Thanksgiving! There are many things to be thankful for this Thanksgiving. Topping our list is YOU: it takes an extended family of artists, performers, playwrights, composers, and companies — plus theaters from around the United States and the world, agents, and our partners and supporters in Saratoga Springs and NYC — to help us foster big ideas and create the next generation of adventurous work. 

We are profoundly grateful! Thank you for choosing to take part in the empowering, diverse, and adventurous process of creativity and risk that the Orchard Project supports. Thank you for being part of our extended family.

In your honor, and to continue supporting the groundbreaking artists who join us each summer, we have chosen to earmark all donations received on #GivingTuesday next week to support our Family Initiative, which raises the bar for all arts organizations by making childcare standard for resident artists. The Orchard Project Family Initiative will not be restricted to one week or one project, and will provide different resources to parents based on the age and needs of their kids.

We are grateful to you for being involved with the OP this year! Please be sure to check your email on Tuesday, November 28 for information about how to maximize the impact of your donation. Thank you!

Best wishes,

Ari Edelson
Artistic Director
The Orchard Project
