Evergreen Theatre Crowdfunding Campaign Launches

 https://chuffed.org/project/evergreen-theatre-addition

The Evergreen Theatre in Margaretsville NS is launching a crowd funding campaign to provide the last few dollars that we need to complete our long awaited addition. Last week a well was successfully installed on the property and we are waiting impatiently to begin major construction in May.

We are fundraising through Chuffed.org, a very socially conscious organization that hands over every dollar that is collected for the cause, unlike many of the crowdfunding platforms who take a sometimes hefty fee from all funds collected.

We hope to raise $24,000 in the next 90 days and we need your help.

How?

First rather obviously by sending us a donation. If you are not in a position to do that then you can still support us hugely by forwarding this message on to your friends by email, Facebook, twitter and what have you. This is how a crowdfunding initiative becomes successful. Of course if you do donate (thank you), please also remember to pass this on to your contacts. All donations are tax deductible.

The address of the campaign (where you can donate) is   https://chuffed.org/project/evergreen-theatre-addition

Thank you for your support.

David and the Evergreen team.


 

Fundraising Basics:

We have established working relationships with three levels of government and feel confident that we have access to substantial matching opportunities for our “real money” fundraising. Fundraising that can be matched by government bodies will consist of three main sources (in order of anticipated donation size):

  • Corporate/Foundation donations, including sources local and throughout the rest of Nova Scotia and Canada. Several applications are in progress and as we continue to research other possibilities, we would be most grateful for your suggestions.
  • Individual donations from our audiences, patrons and others interested in our project.
  • Various fundraising events to be held in 2017.

Are you in?

All donations large and small are appreciated. Please note that a trust account to hold larger donations has been set up locally. Evergreen Theatre (Fundy Folk Association) is a registered charitable organization and tax deductible receipts are available for all donations.
