Giving to the PMT Fund is the best way to support Pittsburgh Musical Theater.
Each year, Conservatory tuition and ticket sales only cover 68% of our programming costs. We rely on the consistent, generous support of donors to help us fulfill our mission.
Here are some examples from the past year:
Gifts made the PMT Fund give the organization the flexibility to address its most pressing needs on a day-to-day basis, and help us do a better job delivering on our mission for those we serve.
If you have questions about your gift or the PMT Fund, please contact Development Director Allison Hannon:
The PMT Fund is a dedicated fund that supports the mission of Pittsburgh Musical Theater and PMT Conservatory. Gifts to the PMT Fund are put to immediate use - targeted to the top priorities and most pressing needs of our students, artists, and the community we serve.
Gifts to the PMT Fund are expended in the year they are received to address immediate, operating needs of the company and the conservatory. The fund helps to provide need-based scholarships, hire musicians and artists, purchase necessary equipment for classes and enhance production quality.
Earned revenue from productions and tuition only covers 68% of our operating costs each year. Our fiscal year ends on June 30 and begins anew on July 1. Every year we depend on donor support to the PMT Fund to cover the remaining 32% of our operating expenses.

"I am in sales - I attribute my public speaking abilities and comfort in front of a room of people to my experience at PMT. Performing gave me stage presence and confidence I wouldn't have learned anywhere else."

"The programming that happens inside the building is amazing. Every day as resident artists we get to see students come out of their shells and learn about performing, and also well as grow as people through developing confidence and communication skills."
