Campaign Just Shy of 70 Percent to Goal

Posted: Monday, March 6, 2017, 4:02pm

The Curtain Players Legacy & Renew campaign is closing in on its $20,000 goal.

The drive as of Monday March 6 is just shy of the 70 percent mark with $13,858 collected.

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. 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.

The Curtain Players governing board extended the Legacy & Renew campaign into 2017 with the hopes of closing in on that $20,000 goal by the close of the current season. The campaign will evolve into an annual giving program for the theatre beginning with the 2017-2018 season.
