Help save Fort Bend Theatre for Christmas!
Thank you for taking the time to send your tax-deductible donation during our time of need!
Dear Friends of Fort Bend Theatre,
Whether it has been years since you or your child participated with us or just last week, we believe that at some point in time Fort Bend Theatre touched both your life and your heart. From the inception of this wonderful theater by visionary founders Frank and Karen Letts, to its tremendous growth and outreach through the creative talents of Executive Artistic Director Tarra McCain, this theater has remained true to its core values of education, excellence, and entertainment in and through the arts for the last 27 years.
But sadly, like many theaters across the country, (27% nationwide), Fort Bend Theatre is now facing closure of its 2815 location. Although our shows, classes and outreach productions remain of the highest quality, we are a nonprofit, and as such, rely on donations to help pay our overhead expenses.
As of today, we have not yet been able to pay all of our December rent, and as such, we will need to exit our 2815 N. Main location before Christmas unless our patrons and supporters come to our rescue.
Rent for this facility is approximately $4000 a month. We know that is too large a figure for most to give, but if 40 people could donate $100 each that would pay one month of rent. Naturally, the more people who give the more we will have for future rent, further securing our ability to stay. The Board of Fort Bend Theatre hopes to set a goal of raising rent for one year's time - $48,000, so that we could get back on our feet. That would mean 480 people would need to give $100.
But truthfully, any size donation would be greatly appreciated at this time. Fortunately, all donations to Fort Bend Theatre are tax-deductible, and as year end approaches it's a great time to consider making that donation. If you decide to do so, simply click the button that says DONATE NOW! If you prefer to send a check, please mail it to Fort Bend Theatre, P O Box 2101 Sugar Land, TX 77082.
Knowing how many children and lives we have touched throughout the years has always been both a joy and a privilege, so it saddens me to think that without your help, our time together may be coming to an end. Please consider helping this worthwhile, award-winning organization to remain in this greatly underserved community of Fort Bend.
As always, we are grateful to you our friends and neighbors for all that you do to support the arts.
May God Bless you richly during this Holy season!
-The Board of Fort Bend Theatre
