#COGivesDay: 5 Years Of Giving

CGD 2014_Master(WORKING)

Dear THAC Friends & Followers,

After a long week of killer deals and steals from your favorite retailers, it is time to reflect on what the holidays are truly about… the spirit of giving! Town Hall Arts Center is one of the many non-profit organizations to participate in Colorado Gives Day, an annual statewide movement to celebrate and increase philanthropy in Colorado through online giving.

Town Hall Arts Center would like to graciously thank Community First Foundation and FirstBank for their partnership in creating the largest incentive fund in history through Colorado Gives Day – totaling 1 million dollars! As one of the largest giving-day incentive funds in the country, the program proportionally increases the value of every dollar donated to Town Hall Arts Center. According to a Colorado Gives Day Press Release,

“If a nonprofit organization receives 10 percent of the total donations made on Colorado Gives Day, that same nonprofit receives 10 percent of the $1 Million Incentive Fund. The 2014 Incentive Fund is 300 percent larger than last year.”

– Kayla Arnesen, Community First Foundation

Colorado Gives Day 2014 is Tuesday, December 9th! On behalf of our actors (both adult and child), designers, directors, teachers, and staff – we would be honored if you could consider a gift to Town Hall Arts Center this year in the form of a Colorado Gives Donation!  It would mean the world to everyone who makes THAC Productions possible, who are all working hard to bring the live theater experience to the Denver metro area! During the past year, over 33,000 students, seniors and adults attended our main stage performances, and preview performances of each main stage musical were attended by over 1,050 underprivileged individuals.  In addition, we served over 3,000 children with our educational programs.  Many of those children received scholarships or tuition reductions because of the support of individuals such as you!

Donors are encouraged to join the movement to “give where you live” and raise millions for your favorite Colorado nonprofits. Colorado Gives Day is powered by ColoradoGives.org, a year-round, online giving website featuring nearly 1,500 Colorado nonprofit organizations. THAC will also be participating in the #COGivesDay Rally on MONDAY 12/08/14 at the capitol building in Downtown Denver!

THANK YOU for considering THAC while donating this season!

Happy Holidays,

Colorado Gives Day Thanks from Town Hall & A Youth Theatre Update

Happy December Everyone!

We wanted to thank you for participating in ColoradoGives Day on December 4th. Thanks to the generosity of donors like you, we raised $3,150 to support our cultural programming in 2012-13. We are truly grateful.

As you know, Town Hall Arts Center just celebrated its 30th Anniversary Season last year. The past three decades have been a remarkable journey for everyone associated with our organization and we look forward to sharing even more exciting live theatre with our audiences in the coming year.

This is the third time that Town Hall Arts Center has participated in ColoradoGives Day and we are proud to announce that giving has increased each year, a testament to the ongoing endorsement and generosity of our family of supporters. As a result of the success of this 24-hour event, we are already at 63% of our “Climb Ev’ry Mountain $5K Campaign” goal and feel confident that this goal will be met by year end.

Watch for the new Actor’s Playground schedule, due out next week. Lots of fun and exciting happenings for your kids!
