Can you make a gift today?
If you’re like me then you are looking around saying “The holidays are here already? Where did 2015 go?!” I can’t believe it, but it’s true. I’ve no doubt that you are considering your shopping lists for the holidays carefully, bookmarking items for your friends and loved ones and planning your gifts thoughtfully. I am writing to ask you to please consider including Curio Theatre Company and Curio Theatre School in your list this year.
At Curio Theatre Company we have spent 2015 staging four main stage productions for over 2,200 patrons and serving over 100 children and teens through our classes, camps, and educational programs. We’ve done all of this with the support of donors and patrons like YOU!
Did you know that ticket sales and tuition only make up about 65% of our annual revenue? The rest of our funding is earned through grants, special events, individual giving and this annual appeal. Your gifts fund every aspect of our work including:
Curio Theatre School has never turned away a student as a result of financial need and that is a promise we plan to keep as we move forward. You have helped us to keep that promise and offer a safe haven for kids to learn and play. These students don't just learn the art of theatre. They learn self confidence and make life-long friends.
We are on the precipice of exciting growth opportunities but we need your support to see them through. We are thrilled with the addition of Timothy Martin as our Associate Artistic Director. As a founding member of Curio Theatre Tim has been with us since the very beginning and we are so happy to have him at the helm. Additionally, our facilities are getting many upgrades. Thanks to the generosity of the Wyncote Foundation we have a beautiful new Green LED lighting system and by years end our elevator will be installed making us an ADA compliant building; full accessibility to our building has been a dream of ours for quite some time. In the year to come we hope to continue to develop artistically and provide West Philadelphia with high-quality professional theatre and expand our education space to serve more students through regular classes, summer camps and special workshops.
Our goal is to raise $25,000 to move forward with these exciting plans and we need your support! Are you able to include Curio Theatre Company on your gift list this year?
Thank you for considering making a 100% tax-deductible gift this holiday season. We hope you can help us continue our tradition of reaching the West Philadelphia community with professional theatre and arts educational programs.
