Fulfilling the mission of The Billie Holiday Theatre would not be possible without the generous support of our foundation, government and corporate partners, and well as our individual donors.

We extend our deepest gratitude for their commitment to bringing world-class theater to the audiences and artists of Bedford Stuyvesant and beyond.


Thank you to our partners, for their support of equity in the arts, for elevating the voices of Black artists, and for their commitment to our communities, in Bed-Stuy and beyond. Our ability to tell stories that matter in the epicenter of the largest community of people of African descent in the nation would not be possible without their support.
