Endowment Donors

An artistic endowment which supports our artistic programming.
Perseverance Theatre’s endowment is held at the Alaska Community Foundation. The Artistic Endowment supports our artistic programming. Perseverance Theatre held a one-million-dollar endowment campaign in 2006 and raised over $500,000. This provided a match to our challenge grant from the Doris Duke Charitable Foundation, which contributed the remaining $500,000. Thank you to the following individuals, businesses, corporations and foundations that supported us in the quest.
