Doubling Down on StageWest

StageWestLogoStageWest recently sent out an update concerning their funding drive, with their goal of $50,000 to keep running for the rest of the calendar year.  Included was news of a generous "challenge gift" opportunity to help move towards that number.  Read further to see how to support this worthwhile organization....

Patrons of theatre in Des Moines are still fighting to help one of their own.  StageWest sent out a message last month about their financial situation, with the request of donations to help keep them viable for the rest of the year.  A second missive from the group arrived on Friday, October 14, which highlighted the progress so far, and also announced a generous "matching gift" that, with the continued generous assistance of the community, might help them achieve their goal.  

From StageWest:  

Greetings! 

It is with great hope and much gratitude that we write you today regarding the Special Fundraising Campaign we emailed you about two weeks ago.

Thank you! Thank you! Too everyone who has given of your treasure in our time of need. We continue to be overwhelmed with your generosity!

As of today at 4:30 we are very nearly at our goal in cash and pledges.

A New Opportunity! Jack Balcomb and Sarah Frank  have thoughtfully put up a challenge pledge of $7,500. We must match this $7,500 and we can have the whole $15,000, this would put us up and over the top of our goal and go a long way in firming up our foundation to do the work we need to do to become Des Moines premiere professional theatre company. 

Thank you Jack and Sarah!

Our goal is $50,000 by October 23, 2016.  Just like when we are losing weight, that last 20 pounds is the hardest to  lose , and the slowest to progress. So goes fundraising, keep telling people how important StageWest is to our ever growing ever diverse community. So if you have not given yet this year please do so now and your investment in StageWest be doubled!

There's one week left to make your donation count.  Please help StageWest continue to bring their lively, edgy, and smart productions to the Central Iowa area, and help out as much as you can. I can't say enough about the wonderful shows I've only been able to experience because of this group, and they deserve to keep having their unique voice heard.
