Playwrights Horizons has, for 29 years, maintained a fervent commitment to nurturing the theatrical voices of tomorrow. By providing hundreds of playwrights, composers and lyricists with the resources to help their idea take flight, Playwrights Horizons has become a true artistic home where the process of creating theater is both a challenging and satisfying experience. Our intelligent and adventurous audiences are an important part of this process and of our proud tradition.

The following is a list of the corporations, foundations, government agencies and individuals who champion the mission and tradition of Playwrights Horizons. It is their philanthropy that provides 40% of the funds needed to sustain the work of this theater. We thank all of our donors for their generous and far-sighted support of this institution.
