Legacy & Renew at 76 Percent of Goal

Posted: Monday, April 17, 2017, 4:34pm

With just more than two months left to go, the Curtain Players Legacy & Renew campaign is closing in on its $20,000 goal.

The drive as of Monday April 17 is at the 76 percent mark with $15,227 collected.

The Curtain Players governing board launched the Legacy & Renew campaign in September 2015 with an original closing date of December 31, 2016. Because of the drive’s early success, the board extended the campaign into 2017 with the hopes of reaching the $20,000 goal by the close of the current season, June 30. The campaign will evolve into an annual giving program for the theatre, starting with the 2017-2018 season.

Contributions – fully tax deductible – may be mailed to Curtain Players at PO Box 1143, Westerville, Ohio 43086. Curtain Players is recognizing campaign donors giving gifts of $20 and more in its production programs and on lobby sign boards.

The community theatre company launched Legacy & Renew after operating several years without an organized fundraising campaign. Ten percent of all gifts are designated for the Curtain Players endowment fund, to preserve and support our organization as it continues and strengthens its LEGACY. The remainder of the monies is to help RENEW Curtain Players, specifically to maintain and to improve the Harlem Road playhouse for the company’s continued stage presentations, as well as to finance new initiatives designed to broaden the organization’s programs.
