Appleby Foundation's mission is to create, develop, and present works and ideas that connect artists and audiences, children and adults, and to strengthen and enliven communities through diverse exposure, access to, and participation in the arts.  In all our creative expression, our work reminds us to remain ever-inventive and responsive to a changing environment. 

The Company is sustained by a combination of revenues generated by teaching and touring, by grants, and through the participation of individuals like yourselves - our audience.
