Here’s an update on the 75 in 75 Drive
for May 9, 2019
To recap, the Longmont Performing Arts Initiative is looking for 75 members of our community who want to help with a donation of $1,000 or more. The funds will go toward our portion of the cost of a feasibility study for a new performing arts center and convention facility in Longmont. Gifts of all amounts are appreciated, and special recognition will be granted to those who give $1,000 or more.
Our goal is to raise $75,000 by 6/01/2019
so the feasibility study can start soon.
The total is currently about $37,503 in donations and pledges, including those from all of the
LPAI member organizations.
There are 23 days to go!
If you or someone you know would like to provide a pledge or donation for the next matching funds drive, please contact Jill in Development through the ‘Donations, Grants, and Other Financial Support’ form on the Contact page to discuss.
New giving levels for individual and organization donations towards the feasibility study are on LongmontCenter.org’s new Support page. Check it out at: https://www.longmontcenter.org/support/
LPAI needs to raise funds for operating expenses. Individuals within LPAI have been funding most of LPAI’s operations out of their own pockets. This is very generous, but it will only take the group & the message so far.
*Larger expenses are coming up, like fees for a 501(c)(3) application, more widespread publicity costs, and related expenses.
If you would like to help us continue to spread the word about the Longmont Center and LPAI, please consider donating towards operating funds on our Support page, at: https://www.longmontcenter.org/support/. The Longmont Chorale, a 501(c)(3) nonprofit, is managing LPAI funds until LPAI becomes a nonprofit on its own. (All LPAI member organizations are nonprofits.)
We have an amazing opportunity to begin something that will not only benefit ourselves, our families, our community and our region now, but far into the future as well.
