2016 holiday giving campaign (2016)





December 2016

Dear Friends! 

As the new year is knocking on WaxFactory’s door, we would like to remind you just how irreplaceable your support is at this point in time. As institutional funders tightening their belts and becoming predictably risk-averse, WaxFactory’s livelihood increasingly relies on the generosity of loyal supporters such as yourself. We have experienced modest, but steady growth in our individual giving in the last four years -- and it is a momentum we must sustain in order to continue making challenging, innovative multidisciplinary work – and, with your help, we can!
As usual, we have been hard at work developing both new and ongoing projects:
Erika begun work on her epic STRANGE JOY project (as part of an exchange with hand2mouth theatre, supported by a grant from NET/Network of Ensemble Theatres), and continued her collaboration with Begat Theatre in France. Ivan lead another iteration of his Chekhovian riff, PULL YOURSELF TOGETHER! at 3LD Art+Technology Center, and just recently completed post-production on WaxFactory’s first-ever feature film, 416 MINUTES, which we hope to release next year.
None of these ambitious artistic endeavors would be possible without you. As you contemplate your options for end-of-the-year giving, we kindly ask you to consider renewing your support for WaxFactory. Next year will be our 19th as an internationally-minded independent non-profit art group – and we’ll need your help to bring our 2017 projects to life (including those linked above -- and more to be announced in 2017!)
Last but not least: as we collectively navigate an uncertain political era, we renew our commitment to inclusiveness, equity and diversity within our ranks. WaxFactory was founded by a woman who grew up on a Lummi Indian Reservation and an immigrant from a war-torn country, and as our collaborators and audiences represent an equally diverse pool of individuals, our commitment to equality and inclusiveness remains steadfast, as always.
THANK YOU for your attention and continued support! As always, any and all donation we receive will be fully tax-deductible. And, if you wish to discuss different ways in which you are able to support us, feel free to reach out, and we will be happy to talk or meet with you.
Best wishes for the holiday season, and looking forward to staying in touch, Best wishes for the holiday season, and looking forward to staying in touch,
