Jobsite has grown! We’re riding high on the momentum generated from a successful campaign in 2016 as we continue to make an indelible contribution to the cultural life of Tampa Bay. In just one year since putting our Artistic Director on a full-time salary we not only met our fundraising goal but generated another $20,000 for educational outreach efforts associated with our Shakespeare programs, increased the number of local organizations we’re partnering with, and have once again made strides toward providing our artists a living wage. These plans are at the heart of our first annual campaign.

A generous 3-year matching grant from the Gobioff Foundation has laid the foundation for this endeavor. On behalf of the Jobsite Board we invite you to contribute to the future of Jobsite and to the cultural life of the region. No donation is too small – any amount is welcome and appreciated.

Standing ovations for all who support us! Thank you, and see you at the show!

In covering the news of Tampa Bay over the last two decades, I’ve come to realize the importance of a vital and well supported arts culture. Sports are fun, beaches are beautiful, but nothing raises awareness and advances our humanity quite like music, fine art, film and theater.

That’s why I’m so excited to help Jobsite expand their creative reach with more performances, more outreaches to underserved segments of our community, and more opportunities for artists of all kinds to make a living wage here in Tampa Bay.

Please join me in helping more people discover the magic that happens on stage at every Jobsite performance!

“The Gobioff Foundation is proud to support Jobsite Theater, an integral and essential part of the arts community in the Tampa Bay area. We’re excited to help them reach the next step in their journey.”

“Jobsite Theater brought the Bay area successful productions of more plays of real substance than any other local house.… Jobsite has become a real treasure, indispensable to our arts scene.”

I am simply astounded by the generosity of this great community. In one year we managed so much, and I can see where we will be able to do even more now that this important Annual Campaign is up and running. We need these funds to continue our reach into our schools and community, to increase and diversify the programs on our stages, and to continue to improve our work and the lives of the artists who create it.

We’ve grown from humble beginnings in a converted house in Ybor to resident company of one of the largest performing arts centers in the country. We’re not only a company consistently recognized regionally for the quality and uniqueness of our programming, but a company with a growing national reputation, as evidenced by coverage in American Theatre Magazine and our 2014 recognition as a finalist for the prestigious American Theatre Wing National Theatre Company Award.

Please join us by standing up alongside our many supporters who believe in our work and the mission we’ve embraced by becoming part of our Annual Campaign today!
