Is your organization actively seeking board members for the upcoming term? Not at this time.

Ways the business community can help your nonprofit: Serve as a sponsor. Sponsor a whole production, sponsor a single artist; no gift is too big or small. We know our donors like to know exactly where their money is going to, so we have opportunities to help us in a variety of ways. You can sponsor a specific artist: one female artist per season, one LGBT artist per season, one graduate of your alma mater per season, or whatever you are looking for. Also, come see a show. Get to know us and our work and help spread the word about Outskirts in the community.

Key fundraising events: The .05k (164 feet) Fun Run, held at Bosco’s Social Club on Sept. 22; Season Kickoff Campaign, starting in June; annual Outskirts Gala.
