When you make a year-end gift to the Playhouse this Holiday season, your generosity will be DOUBLED thanks to Newman's Own Foundation.
Through Thursday, December 31, 2015, any tax-deductible donation made to Westport Country Playhouse will be matched dollar-for-dollar, allowing the Playhouse to continue its role as a vibrant cultural resource.
“Westport Country Playhouse plays a valuable role in the cultural life of the region,” said Robert Forrester, president and CEO of Newman’s Own Foundation. “We are pleased to award this grant and hope that our challenge inspires others in the community to likewise support the Playhouse.”
The Playhouse and Newman’s Own Foundation share a common connection in Paul Newman. Newman’s Own Foundation is the independent foundation created by Newman to continue his philanthropic legacy. Together, Paul Newman and his wife, former Playhouse artistic director Joanne Woodward, were instrumental in creating the Playhouse as it exists today.
