Legacy & Renew Drive at 2/3 of 20K Goal

Posted: Monday, February 27, 2017, 3:48am

The Curtain Players Legacy & Renew campaign has reached two-thirds of its goal. The drive is at 66 percent of its $20,000 goal.

As of February 24, $13,158 has been collected in the fundraising initiative.

The Curtain Players governing board extended the campaign into 2017 with the hopes of closing in on that $20,000 goal by spring. 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 in late 2015 after operating several years without an organized fundraising campaign. According to this campaign design, 10 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.

The Curtain Players governing board is working to make Legacy & Renew an annual giving program for the theatre beginning with the 2017-2018 season.
