September 2012, St. Charles, IL – Fox Valley Repertory announces a unique fundraising program that invites local community members and FVR supporters to rise to a $100,000 Challenge.
With today’s economic climate, nonprofits such as Fox Valley Rep rely heavily on donations to offset the struggle of declining ticket sales. Fox Valley Rep hopes that ‘teamwork will make the dreamwork’ possible by calling for 100 of their supporters, board members, academy parents, subscribers, and friends to join in on this collaborative effort of raising funds for the nonprofit theater company. Each of the 100 Top Club members will reach out to their top 10 contacts to procure a donation of $100. Together, the goal is to collect 1,000 gifts, $100 each, totaling to $100,000.
“Fox Valley Repertory has certainly earned its good reputation through hard work, dedication, and determination, and I can’t think of a better organization to support through this fun and unique fundraising campaign,” says FVR Development Manager Sandy Shelby. “I hope that our community members and leaders will step up to join our Top 100 Club, and help us reach this goal.”
