Contribute to Support Your Professional Theatre!

FUSION Theatre Company is a 501(c)3 non-profit arts organization. Contributions to FUSION are tax deductible to the fullest extent permissible by a contributor's tax status. As is the case with all performance groups, especially those that pay their artists, FUSION takes in less than half of its annual operating budget from ticket sales. Were FUSION to base it's entire budget on tickets, those would run over $60 per seat.

To keep ticket costs reasonable, we regularly seek additional contributions from foundations, government, businesses and individuals who understand and appreciate the incalculable value to the community provided by a vibrant and first-rate arts organization. Even in these difficult times for the arts, FUSION has been the honored recipient of major grants from The City of Albuquerque, Martin Chavez, Mayor, Albuquerque's Urban Enhancement Trust Fund, the Shubert Foundation, the Scott Family Foundation and several other significant sources. At this point, we're still more dependent than we'd like to be on several major individual contributors. We invite any and all inquiries about ways to support FUSION.

Several aspects of FUSION's mission and management make it, we believe, an appealing investment....

  • FUSION fills a unique and extremely valuable niche in the New Mexico arts scene. Not only is FUSION the sole remaining professional theatre company in the state, we have a special focus on producing only the great works, old and new, from around the world. Whether comedy or tragedy or a blend of the two, FUSION audiences can expect our productions to be of the highest merit.

  • FUSION is completely committed to the revitalization of downtown Albuquerque and seeks to be a major contributor to a high quality of life for our community. We understand the value of being named the highest creativity indexed, mid-sized city in America, and we appreciate what it takes to keep Albuquerque at the top of the list.

  • FUSION is run by experienced and successful business men and women. We are growth minded, but we also know how to do this intelligently, minimizing the risk of too rapid growth, which has led to the demise of a number of performance organizations in New Mexico and across the country. We are here for the long haul!

  • FUSION is extremely lean. We pay no administrative salaries; all funds go to the productions in the form of artists' compensation (including benefits for Equity members), set construction, building overhead and promotion. (Along with other major performance groups such as the NMSO and Chamber Music Albuquerque, we believe that a successful arts organization does require some compensated administrative leadership and support; we are working toward that goal.)

  • FUSION is committed to providing professional acting opportunities to local actors, and to introducing great professional talent from other regional centers to New Mexicans. We provide an important venue for local talent, and we understand the value, both to our patrons and to the standing of New Mexico in the eyes of others, of including the best available talent from beyond our borders.

There is no question that producing professional theatre in New Mexico is a great challenge! However, we at FUSION Theatre Company are reminded daily, in our own observations, and through the feedback of others, that there is a deep desire and need for the mission we fulfill. We welcome and value your support of that mission.

Though fully professional in its artistic representation, FUSION Theatre Company depends on generous and talented volunteers to make its operation run smoothly. Volunteers have been instrumental in such vital roles as:

  • front-of-house (box office, phones, concessions)
  • publicity and promotion
  • production support (props, some scene work, artist assistance)

What do volunteers get in return? Aside from seeing great shows for free, like most volunteers, they identify a need and they get their own gratification from filling it well.

Would you like to be a FUSION volunteer? We welcome your proposition! Please write or call and tell us a little about yourself, your expertise and your availability!
