“The LIT Fund offers the big fish a clear and practical way of helping out the little fish. And as any credible marine biologist will tell you, no little fish, no big fish.” -- Greg Kotis, two-time Tony winner for Urinetown! The Musical
Our sister organization, the LIT Fund, is a 501 (c) 3 not-for-profit designed to financially assist organization and individual artists creating independent theater in the five boroughs of New York City. The intent of the Fund is to protect, sustain and strengthen this vital segment of American theater--in any economic environment--and to further enhance its positive impact on the cultural landscape of the city. The money for the Fund comes from participating organizations and artists who make donations in the amount of 5¢ per ticket they sell.
Please note the League of Independent Theater and the LIT Fund are separate organizations working to help indie theater. If eligible, you are allowed to join LIT, the LIT Fund, or both. Participation in one organization is not required to be part of the other.
