Highwire Improv

How Your Donation Helps

First of all, thank you for considering a donation to Highwire Improv! Your donations are tax-deductible, as we are a registered 501(c)(3) non-profit organization. This page provides some transparency and options for how your money can be applied to our mission: to steward a community of artists committed to growth, collaboration, joy, and justice — in Baltimore and around the world — through improvisational theater.

Accounting Funds

Highwire Improv allows for donations to be made to one of three accounting funds – which are simply separate financial tracking accounts that specify what the donated money can be used for.

General Accounting Fund – our general accounting fund; this money can be used for any purpose to advance Highwire Improv’s programs and efforts.

Anti-Racism Accounting Fund – these funds will specifically be used towards Highwire Improv’s anti-racism and anti-oppression efforts, including, but not limited to training programs, scholarships, performer payments, and direct donations to improv projects for or by Black, Indigenous, and People of Color, as well as 2SLGBTQIA+ producers, students, and performers.

The Last Laugh Accounting Fund – these funds are specifically allocated to our long-term cash reserves. As part of our overall strategy, we think it’s critical to prepare the organization for the worst, to ensure that we’re able to stay in operations even if there’s a major disruption (like the COVID-19 pandemic). It’s our responsibility, especially as we take on part-time and full-time employees, to ensure that we have a safety net in place.
