The financial impact of COVID-19 on New Tampa Players has been immense. In a normal fiscal year, New Tampa Players raises 75% of its budget through ticket sales. As a result of COVID-19, New Tampa Players has lost over 50,000 dollars in the past 8 months. With our new space, we have also had expenses totaling over 20,000 dollars.
Fortunately, in the past few years, NTP had set aside a small savings and has also been the recipient of grants from the Hillsborough Arts Council, the Hillsborough County Board of Commissioners, and the State Division of Cultural Affairs. Through these sources and generous donations, NTP is fiscally healthy today.
Please help New Tampa Players continue to weather the COVID-19 pandemic. Your donation will ensure that NTP is fiscally healthy as we move in to the New Tampa Performing Arts Center in 2022 and continue to provide the diverse programming and opportunities that you value in the future.
