Raising Operating capital for The Lower Bottom Playaz, the oldest North American African Theater Troupe in Oakland CA
Where Your Money Goes:
Funds raised here will pay for office space, buy copy paper for scripts, ink for copiers, pay our box-office bill, help to host our web sites, buy postage, and assist with all of the cost associated with running a non-profit organization engaged in creating art for public presentation.
We are a non-profit organization if you don't want a perk your donation is tax deductible and 100 per cent of your contribution helps us continue to exist. We also offer an array of pretty cool perks to reward you for supporting such a worthy cause.
All funds will be used to assist the troupe in its day to day operation through the closing of its 12th season.
