Special Funds

We have a variety of special purpose funds that help the WCT and its members pursue their goals:

The Tuition Assistance Fund

The WCT Tuition Assistance Fund was established to help fulfill the WCT mission to be a cultural and educational resource for the community by providing opportunities for all children to appreciate and participate in the performing arts, regardless of ability to pay. WCT tuition assistance allows all interested students and families the chance to become involved with our diverse and inclusive theatre programming. For more specific information on this fund, contact us at donate@wctmail.org.

Visionary Fund

The WCT Visionary Fund was established in celebration of WCT’s 25th birthday to build a financial reserve and to help secure a bright future for the next 25 years and beyond! Numerous contributions, including a matching grant, have given us a strong start toward our initial fundraising goal of $50,000. For more specific information on this fund, you may contact Alison Roberts at donate@wctmail.org.

Cindy Waldron Cannon Fund

The Cindy Waldron Cannon Fund was established after Cindy, a WCT parent and volunteer, passed away in April 2002, to honor her for the extraordinary person she was and for her many contributions to WCT. As she loved both the theatre and education, the fund is used to award an annual scholarship in Cindy’s name to a graduating Watertown High School senior who has participated in WCT and has shown extraordinary commitment to the performing arts during high school. The 2011 CWC Fund scholarship recipient was Grace Gallant. For more specific information on this fund, contact us at donate@wctmail.org.

Dinah Lane Theatre Arts Fund

The Dinah Lane Theatre Arts Fund was established on the occasion of WCT’s 20th Anniversary Celebration in 2004, to honor WCT Founder and Artistic Director, Dinah Lane. The mission of the fund is to sponsor theatre arts events and performances FREE to all. Programs such as master classes, artists-in-residence, technical theatre activities, and special performances to supplement core programming of WCT are supported by this fund.
