November 29, 2011

Dear Third Rail Projects Friends & Family,

As Advisory Board members and long-time supporters of Third Rail Projects, it’s hard to believe that we have now reached a ten-year milestone…

From its beginnings as a scrappy self-produced dance company to its evolution

into an established collective of Bessie award-winning artists, Third Rail has grown exponentially this past decade. Their diverse work in an array of media has garnered a vast community of local, national and international audiences and collaborators. This year alone, Third Rail has supported more than 50 professional artists, worked with over 100 students, and presented five major works experienced by more than 100,000 audience members. This summer the Los Angeles Downtown News summed it up beautifully, calling Third Rail a “Terpsichorean perfect storm.”

In celebration of the Tenth Anniversary Season, to honor Third Rail's ongoing

commitment to bringing sophisticated art into the public sphere, and to lay the first cornerstone in the foundation for the next decade, we are proud to match any gift amount donated to Third Rail by December 31st, dollar-for-dollar, up to $20,000.

We want to ensure that Third Rail Projects will continue to bring us beautiful and inspiring works for another ten years and beyond, and we challenge you to help us meet this fundraising goal by making your tax-deductible contribution in conjunction with this special opportunity. Now is an important moment to show our steadfast support to help launch Third Rail Projects forward. Our donations at this time will help strengthen Third Rail’s foundation, fortify organizational infrastructure, supplement production budgets, and pay the artists, performers, designers, collaborators, and staff.

CLICK HERE to make your instant online tax-deductible donation through Third Rail's fiscal sponsor (Fractured Atlas).

We hope that you will join us in the Tenth Anniversary Season Campaign to lay the foundation for future works and fan the creative fires of the incomparable artists of Third Rail Projects.

Our Warmest Regards,

Co-chairs for the Tenth Anniversary Campaign for Third Rail Projects
