YOUR TAX DOLLARS AT WORK
FOR LOCAL ARTISTS!!
||The San Francisco Mime Troupe is a grateful grantee of the Voluntary Arts Contribution Fund. This fund administrated through SF Grants for the Arts has been a bonus for local arts organizations particularly with their Creative Space programs that help fund facility upgrades and repairs, expenses that can really impact a company's (like ours) already stretched budget. As your bills come due, we ask all SF PROPERTY OWNERS to regularly check the VACF box on their tax bills and give a donation to help their local San Francisco Arts organizations maintain a home in this increasingly expensive city.
The San Francisco Mime Troupe needs minor short term electrical labor at the Studio in Francisco's Mission District as tax deductible in-kind donation by a qualified contractor. This work is limited to installation of four ceiling pendant 110VAC-rated lighting fixtures now on site, including home run circuiting in NEC/NFPA-compliant conduit with dimmer switching. All work is in the same area and level as the main electrical panel, 12 feet above a flat floor in open floor framing. All material expense for this work will be provided by SFMT unless the electrician chooses to donate miscellaneous fittings from stock. The donor must have appropriate licensing, insurance and references.
This work is repair and maintenance in nature and new construction permitting is not contemplated at this time. Thank you for your consideration and support.
If you wish to give this gift please contact Greg at firstname.lastname@example.org
The Tony Award-winning San Francisco Mime Troupe presents the 18th Annual Youth Theater Project. Teens from San Francisco and Oakland perform two outrageous, dark, gritty original ensemble-created shows! The performance is the culmination of a playmaking workshop in the Mime Troupe style of political satire with teeth!
This year the Mime Troupe got a big wake-up call. Although decreased non-corporate arts funding was not news, a perfect storm of disappeared grants and increased fees left us unable to fund our summer show. We turned to you and you responded with a force of generosity that literally propelled us into the parks. We now ask that you continue to show your support by donating now
, to our winter appeal.
The San Francisco Mime Troupe does not do pantomime. We mean 'mime' in the ancient sense: to mimic. We are satirists, seeking to make you laugh at the absurdities of contemporary life, and at the same time see their causes. We travel the country and the world with our message of solidarity, comedy, and the plight of the worker in our increasingly corporatized democracy, and have done shows about most of the burning issues of our time - normally debunking the official story. And because we want our shows about the issues of the day to be seen by the people who are most effected by those issues- working class families who can't always afford to the ticket prices at the other Tony award winning theaters - we perform most of our shows free in public parks, for tens of thousands of our fellow citizens every summer.
