Theatre for Kids

The Theatre for Kids program broadens kids horizons through access to live, professional theatre.

Rodman for Kids distributes tickets to youth-focused non-profit organizations, as well as public and private schools in Greater Boston and the Gateway Cities, giving access to live, professional theatre for kids who would not otherwise have the opportunity. Each group receives an agreed upon number of tickets to bring kids they serve who would otherwise not have the opportunity to attend a show.

In addition to kids who do not have the economic means to attend, tickets are shared with kids with cognitive, behavioral, and medical challenges that make it difficult for them to attend a show with a typical audience.

Rodman for Kids believes in the power of collaboration, working together with 40+ youth-focused non-profit organizations as a true partner to support the young people in our communities.

Rodman for Kids brings together the leaders and staff of our Charity Partners to create a collaborative peer learning and support community, building their knowledge & capacity through professional and leadership development opportunities.

Balance sheet

Fiscal Year: Jan 01 - Dec 31

SOURCE: IRS Form 990 info

The balance sheet gives a snapshot of the financial health of an organization at a particular point in time. An organization's total assets should generally exceed its total liabilities, or it cannot survive long, but the types of assets and liabilities must also be considered. For instance, an organization's current assets (cash, receivables, securities, etc.) should be sufficient to cover its current liabilities (payables, deferred revenue, current year loan, and note payments). Otherwise, the organization may face solvency problems. On the other hand, an organization whose cash and equivalents greatly exceed its current liabilities might not be putting its money to best use.

Data
  • We review compensation data across the organization (and by staff levels) to identify disparities by race.
  • We disaggregate data to adjust programming goals to keep pace with changing needs of the communities we support.
  • We employ non-traditional ways of gathering feedback on programs and trainings, which may include interviews, roundtables, and external reviews with/by community stakeholders.
Policies and processes
  • We seek individuals from various race backgrounds for board and executive director/CEO positions within our organization.
  • We have community representation at the board level, either on the board itself or through a community advisory board.
  • We help senior leadership understand how to be inclusive leaders with learning approaches that emphasize reflection, iteration, and adaptability.
  • We engage everyone, from the board to staff levels of the organization, in race equity work and ensure that individuals understand their roles in creating culture such that one’s race identity has no influence on how they fare within the organization.
