Support EVCT

Thank You for Your Support!

East Valley Children’s Theatre relies on your donations and grants that allow us to continue presenting the highest quality of theatre “by and for children”.

Our ALL volunteer board works very hard to raise funds to offer a wide variety of opportunities for children of all ages.

Ticket sales cover only a fraction of what it takes to put on a professional quality production. Your contribution will directly impact children by not only teaching them theatrical skills, but life skills as well.

Without your support none of this would be possible. Thank You!

EVCT is a 501(c)3 organization. All donations are tax deductable. Tax ID 86-0599251

Karen and Ernie

Here’s what we believe: To cultivate their artistic talents, or to instill confidence, budding performers need opportunities to practice their performing art. EVCT’s Performance Troupes provide many opportunities to perform in different locations, under different circumstances, to gain confidence and self-esteem, learn to work together to achieve a common goal, and to create their art in an imaginative and welcoming space.

Your gift to the Karen & Ernie Rolston Scholarship Fund enables more students to gain access to being in a Performance Troupe and to receive these benefits.  Karen is the former Artistic Director.

Patricia and Robert Goyer

Scholarships are awarded to deserving students so they can enroll in an EVCT program at a reduced rate, or at no personal cost. The Goyer family understands that theater education provides important life skills, and socio-economic circumstances should not limit those seeking opportunities in theater.

The Goyers’ daughters Amy, Linda, and Susie established the Patricia and Robert Goyer Memorial Scholarship Fund at EVCT to honor their parents’ lifelong passion for the arts and to continue their parents’ work giving children opportunities to experience theater at a young age.

What a great Idea!
Thank You Patricia and Robert and special thanks to Amy, Linda and Suzie.
