This committee also raises money and awareness for the special Partners Bus Subsidy Fund, bringing children to the theaters for education at PlayhouseSquare.

Committee members secure sponsorships from corporate and individual donors to financially support Partners’ activities (primarily Jump Back Ball), educational events and the theaters of PlayhouseSquare.
