Celebrating 18 Years of Innovative Work
by Third Rail Projects with a Special 30K Match Gift Challenge!

Dear Third Rail Projects Friends & Family,

As devoted supporters of Third Rail, It is amazing to look back at the company’s 18-year history and marvel at all the work that has been created in that time.

From its modest beginnings as a self-produced dance company to its evolution into an established collective of award-winning artists and leaders of experiential theater, Third Rail has grown exponentially with the support of individual donors.

During the company’s pivotal 10th Anniversary year in 2010, a group of generous donors created a match gift challenge that enabled the creation of the immersive theater hit Then She Fell, which continues now into its sixth year of sold-out performances. This support helped the company become the organization that it is today.

Now, a group of us are reaching out with another match challenge to lay the groundwork for the next chapter of Third Rail’s development and growth. This challenge will support new project ideation and creative incubation as the company looks towards its 20th Anniversary Season in 2020.

The diverse work of Third Rail Projects, including its award-winning site-specific and experiential theater projects, education programs, and the Global Performance Studio, demonstrates a commitment to cultural listening both at home and abroad. The company has garnered a vast community of local, national and international audiences and collaborators. Since Then She Fell launched in 2012, Third Rail has supported more than 250 professional artists, worked with over 700 students, and presented 25 major works in seven countries!

In celebration of the company’s ongoing commitment to bringing sophisticated art into the public sphere, and to lay the foundation for the creative years ahead, we are proud to match any gift amount donated to Third Rail by June 30, dollar-for-dollar, up to $30,000.

We want to ensure that Third Rail Projects will continue to bring us beautiful and inspiring works in the years to come, and we challenge you to help us meet this fundraising goal by making your tax-deductible contribution in conjunction with this special opportunity.
We hope that you will join us.


Our Warmest Regards, 
Judy and Steven Gluckstern, Kyle Fisher, Stephanie & Ron Kramer
Co-Chairs for the 18th Season Campaign for Third Rail Projects
