Monetary donations will be used for the purchase of water filters, bottled water, emergency support services and prevention efforts in Flint. The production said that 100 percent of donated funds will be used for the Flint Water Fund, and no administrative fee will be assessed. After the short-term need of Flint residents has been met, any remaining funds will be directed to the Flint Child Health and Development Fund. "This is a generous gift for the people of Flint, one that will help address our immediate needs in the community," said Jamie Gaskin, CEO of the United Way of Genesee County, in a statement.
Fiddler producer Jeffrey Richards added, "In keeping with the great Broadway tradition of giving back, I am proud that proceeds from this iconic musical about tradition—which celebrates the human spirit’s ability to find strength, love and joy in the face of [adversity]—will help the people of Flint through their current crisis."
