Thanks to our fantastic donors and supporters, we met our challenge grant goal!
Through our spring & summer fundraising campaigns, we met our matching challenge of $4000 from the East Bay Fund for Artists! In face, we exceeded the goal by about $400, which will cover the associated costs of credit card and fiscal sponsorship fees. Hurrah! and THANK YOU!
You’re the wind in our sails.
Not only do these dollars help the Peripatetic Players to sail around the Bay this summer, the matching funds from the East Bay Fund for Artists at the East Bay Community Foundation will help Idiot String (the Peripatetics’ parent company) create a new play in Port Costa in 2019.
It’s all because of folks like YOU!
Thank you to all our generous supporters of the matching campaign who donated online or by filling out yellow slips or swiping a card at our shows… to those who pledged a Player for the Third Annual Particularly Obstinate Obstacle Course… and everyone who helped us meet our match!
And thank you also to everyone who gives at our performances. Your kind words and smiles put the wind in our sails, and the dollars that you drop in our hats keeps our shows accessible to all!
Here’s what it takes to put on an SPPP summer tour…
- $4500 pays artists (actors, designers, director and technicians)
- $1500 creates sets, props & costumes
- $2500 helps us get the word out
- $3500 pays for park permits, truck rental, and insurance
- $1365 covers banking fees, office supplies, and other expenses
That’s $13,365 for the whole summer tour — or about $1215 per show. Yay, math!
Is it too late to donate? It’s never too late! We’re still counting on donations throughout the summer to meet our overall budget for the tour. If you’re moved, you can donate right here, right now! Or, come to a show and drop some dollars in our hat. In either case, we hope to see you soon!
