Seasons greeting! 

On behalf of the Board of Directors of the Los Angeles Women’s Theatre Festival (LAWTF) and Honorary Chairpersons Danny Glover and Hattie Winston, we give gratitude to you as a contributor to our non-profit arts organization.

We kicked off our Annual Year-End Giving Campaign as participants in the international #GivingTuesday Day on December 3, 2020, and will continue our efforts through December 31, 2020 and ask you to join our Holiday Ask Campaign.

We have accomplished many milestones over the years including our current “Hot Off the Press” New Works Solo Reading Series, Wine Down Wednesday Mixers, and our Annual EMPOWERMENT DAY.

Our extraordinary past performers total over 500 in number and have stood to join hands with the Festival from North America, Europe, Asia, and Australia. We have also served well over 3000 youth and offered outreach programs to at-risk youth, ex-offender women, seniors, low-income artists, and educational and free programming to the community.

It is important that women’s voices continue to be heard strongly during this pivotal time in our country. Our annual programming has served as a bold reminder that women count, women are important, and women have always taken a significant leadership role in our country.

We ask that you contribute TODAY or before December 31, 2020, to receive your tax-deductible credit as allowed by law. Your giving will support us to continue to serve our Los Angeles community, artists, and audiences in creative and healing ways.

Thank you in advance for your continued support of the Los Angeles Women’s Theatre Festival and we look forward to seeing you at our 27th Anniversary, March 27-29, 2021!

We will continue to sell these commemorative pins until all are gone. For those who purchase, an added perk will be a discount of $2.00 to any of our future programs.
