Our friends and patrons know our story well: it is one of a community coming together to bring The Civic Theatre back to life. Now, our capital renovation is on the horizon.
In the meantime, we need your help.
We are looking to our donors, members, and community supporters to help us bridge the gap between the volatility we experience running a single-screen theatre, and the ongoing solvency which will come with three screens in the future.
Your support now is an investment in that future.
These are the ways that you can support our resilience, growth, and future as we embark on this exciting next step of our capital project development:
- Come to movies at The Civic Theatre! Bring your friends and family, buy popcorn, and enjoy the show. If all our members came to two movies a month, our financial gap would be closed.
- Start or renew your membership. The size of our membership is key to helping us make our case to funding prospects. Plus, it gives you $2 off every ticket and rewards you with free films and concession items. Our membership in our first year was an astounding 2,500 people - if we could entice that number of members again, our operating gap would disappear.
- Make a gift to Nelson Civic Theatre Society. Your tax-deductible donation of any size will help us to bridge the next year.
- Make a giving pledge for the next two years, securing our solvency until we complete our multi-venue upgrade. If everyone made a gift this year with a pledge for the coming two, it would eliminate our administrative cost of asking again next year and the year after that, and let us focus that time instead on raising capital funds. (Monthly giving pledges are available through canadahelps.org. Please contact us to arrange an annual pledge at firstname.lastname@example.org.)
We hope you will join us to come together once again to sustain The Civic Theatre as we enter this next chapter in our development.
