Making theater accessible because everyone deserves an arts-filled life.
Marya’s Gift, a scholarship fund for Camp Broadway and other arts organizations, to provide financial assistance for children, ages 7-15, who are interested in pursuing theatre, dance or visual design. The fund is named in memory of Marya Lenn Yee, a passionate patron of the arts, loyal friend and the first person to believe that Camp Broadway could be a safe place for children to hone their talent, develop their confidence and shape their “character”. Without her wisdom and brilliant legal advice, Camp Broadway® would not exist today. Marya’s Gift enables future generations of artists to feel the love and support that Marya provided to everyone who was lucky enough to know her. Broadway Education Alliance, a New York City based 501.c3, manages Marya’s Gift,
