The Atherton Foundation
We're honored to be the recipients of a generous grant from the Atherton Foundation, which will help us make some much needed improvements to our building and your experience with us. The improvements include fixing structural damage to our floor, improving our storage, and replacing our worn and deteriorating theatre seats.
Rather than fund the entire project, The Atherton Foundation is granting us a portion of the expences, allowing us to work with other foundations, corporations and individuals to fully fund the improvements.
Our deficit is $40,000, beyond our usual fundraising efforts for general support. As we work on strategies to raise the funds, we welcome your input, energy, sponsorships and donations. Are you and/or your corporation able to help us? Would you like to advise us or work on our fundraising committee?
We have a limited time to fund and complete the projects. If you'd like to help, please contact Donna by replying to this email, calling 536-4222 or clicking:
We thank The Atherton Foundation and YOU!
