Police Deaf Near Far would not be possible without the help of a wide variety of supporters. Our Kickstarter campaign ran from July 1 through August 15, and our supporters are listed below, under “Shout Outs”.  We’ve also received other support through grants and sponsorships.  Our heartfelt thanks to all of our supporters — Without you, Police Deaf Near Far would not be possible.

Our Kickstarter campaign was launched with this video, which describes the history of this production, and why we feel it is an important story to tell in our community.

  1. I am trying to get others to donate but if they don’t see our names on the list (we donated $100) they might be curious as to why we didn’t donate.

      Hi Richard. We added your name to the supporter page of PDNF a couple of days ago. Sometimes, web browsers will hold an old copy of the page for viewing. I wonder if you refresh your browser, if that might help? I will also make an adjustment on this end that might take care of the issue from this end.

      On the Kickstarter page, the supporters tab updates after every ten new donors. The list is not in any particular order – I see your name on the second page.

      Please reply back if refreshing your browser page doesn’t show you in our list on http://pdnf.terptheatre.org/pdnf-supporters/ – That might mean there is some other technical issue with our blog.

      I appreciate your note – if there is a problem on our end, I’ll want to address it. Thanks.
