The Hill-Snowdon Foundation, in partnership with the General Service Foundation, is launching the Defending the Dream Fund to provide expedited resources to grassroots organizing groups that are working to protect targeted communities in the Trump era and defend the core principles of equity and justice.
In solidarity with the National Day of Action and Resistance, the Hill-Snowdon Foundation will close its office on May 1st, 2017 – May Day. The Majority is comprised of faith communities, unions, Movement for Black Lives, Mijente and other migrant rights organizations, climate justice groups, indigenous networks, and a spectrum of progressive allies that are coordinating efforts in over 100 cities on May 1st to stand up for justice and equity.
Given our office closure and the work that will be happening on the ground on May 1st, we are extending the deadline for our Defending the Dream Fund from May 1st to May 3rd.
Ted Snowdon, grandson of Arthur B. Hill, straddles two worlds – that of the philanthropic community, where he sits on several nonprofit boards and supports numerous charities, and that of the commercial New York theater, where he develops and produces new plays. In addition to his work with the Hill-Snowdon Foundation, he is president of The Ted Snowdon Foundation, which funds primarily the arts and lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT) causes.
Ted received his B.S. in speech and drama from Syracuse University and his M.F.A. in directing from Catholic University. He lives and works in New York City, where his recent productions have included The Mountaintop, Master Class, Time Stands Still, Our Town, Secrets of the Trade, Reasons to be Pretty, Souvenir, The Little Dog Laughed, and the musical Spring Awakening. His first producing credit was in 1979 with the Tony winner, The Elephant Man. Ever since then, Ted has strived to find and present theater that reflects his world view.
