Making space for
Your Impact

Thanks to people like you, Gibney has entered its New Phase. In the last eight years the organization has rapidly expanded from:

  • 2,500 to 52,000 square feet across Lower Manhattan
  • $500,000 to a $6M operating budget
  • 2 full-time staff to 29 full-time staff, 37 part-time staff, and 10 interns at any given time

It brings us great pride to see the ripple effects of our work grow as a result. Each year we are now able to:

  • Steward 23 studios and 5 performance spaces
  • Provide 100+ weekly classes
  • Commission 30+ new works
  • Present 180+ performances
  • Attract 9.500+ audience members
  • Impact 10,000+ youth in local schools
  • Empower 3,650 survivors across local shelters

You make this possible. With your support, we continue to push boundaries, tackle pressing issues, provide resources for artistic exploration, and lift intersectional voices into the fold. We tap into the vast potential of movement 365 days a year to effect social change and personal transformation.

Thank you for believing in us. It’s an honor to have you join us as we enter this Next Phase.

With gratitude,
Gina Gibney
