Dylan Thomas Society members
The Dylan Thomas Society, founded in 2010 by then board member Mark Bell, is established for donors who are committed to the success of AfA’s work in the community. The Society has benefits such as poetry gifts, the obligatory pub crawls (hey, we’re talking Dylan Thomas!), and special youth performances. Membership in the society is for community-minded givers who donate a minimum of $1,000 a year (or, alternatively, $100 a month) through ColoradoGives.org.
