After a wildly successful World Premiere adaptation of MACARIO in October 2013, our Board of Directors came together to challenge our community with a $2,000 matching gift to propel us into our 30th year of visionary Chicano theater. We asked you to step up and double your impact by making a matching donation before December 31st.
Well, as of the stroke of midnight on New Year's Day, nearly 30 donors had contributed more than $2,300 to the cause! This does not include the generosity of the more than 50 friends and patrons who attended our 2nd Annual Holiday Posada on December 20th. Furthermore, we are proud to note that Teatro Visión raised a record $5,400 donations online in 2013.
This is a testament to our continued engagement with a new generation of supporters who will sustain our organization for another 30 years! As you know, ticket sales account for only a third of the revenue Teatro needs to continue our mission. Your donations help us survive in a highly competitive environment for nonprofit organizations and support our unique voice in the South Bay arts scene.
If you haven't yet made a donation this fiscal year (July-June), please consider doing so today. If you've already given or don't have the means, please share our story with your friends, family, neighbors, and coworkers, and encourage them to support our work. Every dollar we receive goes right back into our innovative programming, and every donor is a valued member of our team.
Thank you once again for supporting Teatro Visión, y prospero año nuevo!
