Bay Street Theatre Announces $300,000 Challenge Grant

Posted on 27 August 2013


Bay Street Theatre announced Friday that an anonymous donor has promised a gift of $300,000 to launch a matching funds campaign. The gift was in response to Bay Street’s formal announcement that Scott Schwartz will be the theater’s new artistic director for the 2014 season.

“We couldn’t be more grateful for such a generous gift,” said Bay Street’s executive director Tracy Mitchell. “It’s the kind of support and backing that a non-profit theater requires and we couldn’t be more excited now to make it a reality.”

This anonymous gift is being used to launch the Fall Matching Funds Campaign with every donation matched dollar for dollar up to $300,000. The gift was recently announced at an estate of a long-time lover of Bay Street during its “Close the Gap, Fill the Seats” cocktail reception for patrons.

“An investment in the future of Bay Street is an investment in our community and the services we are committed to providing to our partners, business owners, and community members both children and adult alike,” added Mitchell.

Tax deductible donations can be made by clicking the “Donate Now” icon online at, by visiting the box office, by calling Jessica Lemire in the Development Office at 725-0818 ext. 129, or send a check to Bay Street Theatre, PO Box 810, Sag Harbor, NY 11963.
