The League of Professional Theatre Women Offers Emergency Loan Fund
March 23, 2020
The League of Professional Theatre Women, an organization which has been championing women in the professional theatre for over three decades, responds to the recent Broadway shut down by offering full members of the League, in good standing, access to an emergency loan fund.
LPTW recognizes that our beloved theatre community will be hit hard by this in so many ways and we urge you to care for yourselves and each other during this difficult time, and to tap into the open, creative, artistic, generous spirit which has always defined our community.
To that end, the League is supporting its members through its Waldman Emergency Fund. Long-time member Honey Waldman graciously donated money several years ago to create the Fund in memory of her father. The purpose of the fund is to assist LPTW members in good standing who reside in the United States, when an emergency occurs. The loan is intended for true emergencies. A committee will review requests for loans which will be evaluated on an individual basis. All requests are confidential, and all loans are discreet.
LPTW member events are still running through the month of March with the exception of Julia’s Reading Room, originally scheduled for March 25 at the Jefferson Market Library, which unfortunately has been canceled.
