Gifts of any size make a difference and we welcome conversations to discuss what is meaningful to you as a donor. Estate gifts to Giving Circles are a wonderful way to establish your Key West legacy. Feel free to contact Jed Dodds ( to discuss your Giving Circle gift.

Innovation Circle

Charting new paths to creative experiences

Gifts used for digital productions, new artists.

Giving Circles support ongoing initiatives and priorities of The Studios that rely on a bit of extra help to succeed. Specific goals and projects for each Circle are established annually.

Past Programs Supported by the Innovation Circle include:

The production of the streaming play Repair (2023). Workshopped in early March 2020, Repair is a script by one of Key West’s singular talents, Michael Marrero. Repair wastes no time launching into the action. The play opens as a car pulls into a closed body shop in Queens one night in the middle of a downpour. When the mechanic goes outside to let the driver know the shop isn’t open, he quickly discovers that nothing about the encounter is random.

Amanda McBroom’s cabaret show. Charting new territory in creative experiences, The Studios welcomed a super star cabaret performer to its stage in 2023 with the help of a generous donation to make higher artist fees possible.
