Our vision with the Community Partners program at Olney Theatre Center is to partner with nonprofit organizations that echo our values and are working to achieve our overarching vision of creating an antiracist society. While we at Olney Theatre reach community through the arts, these organizations may or may not be in the arts sectors. We believe that the nonprofit community is an integral part of our economic and social ecosystem, and are thereby committed to fostering an environment that reflects our guiding principles of Community Engagement - Outreach, Participation/Access/Inclusion, Creativity, Gathering, Civic Duty.
Mission -The Community Partners program is an annual program where two qualified nonprofit organizations get elevated to the position of our Community Partners. The mission and work of these organizations will be amplified in multiple ways not limited to in kind donations, on site conversations, tickets, and marketing opportunities. The organizations will be selected based upon a set of criteria, including the value added to the identified community and work in areas relating to themes being presented in each programming season. We will highlight one organization during the Fall and the other in the Spring season.
