Provide a Sustainable Foundation


Visionary Circle

Visionaries are transformational major donors who help shape the future of the organization with imagination and wisdom. Thanks to their generosity and compassion, unprecedented needs are being addressed and the foundation of support for those affected by COVID-19, HIV/AIDS and other critical illnesses across the country is strengthened.

In appreciation of an annual contribution of $10,000 or more, Visionaries receive exclusive invitations to virtual and in-person events, insider access and the option to designate their gift to one of Broadway Cares’ grant categories. Contributions are not related to event ticket or merchandise purchases.

We salute these donors for their leadership and commitment to helping others in need.

For more information, please contact Sarah Cardillo, deputy director of development, at cardillo@broadwaycares.org or 212.840.0770, ext. 275.
