About the 20th Anniversary Annual Fund
Wow. Custom Made has reached its 20th season!=
If you asked us back in 1998 if we’d make it this long, we probably would have told you we weren’t even sure what our next show was, let alone looking that far into an unimaginable future.
And yet, not only have we survived these past 20 seasons, but we’ve found a home, a family of artists, and an amazing collection of supporters like you.
But the price of staying alive increases every year. So we’ve now launched our 20th Anniversary Annual Fund, where we will raise 20k in 20 days! Won’t you help us out with a tax-deductible gift today?
***Day 1! The first 1k to our campaign will be matched by an anonymous donor. Your gift is worth double today!***
Since we’ve moved into 533 Sutter, our rent has gone up almost 10%, and we are expecting another 5% increase by the end of our lease in 2020. We simply have to raise funds to make sure we can survive. Just this season, Custom Made has had to replace our light board and soundboard, bought new microphones and has raised stipends to make sure performers, directors, and designers can afford to work here and share their talents with you.
It’s our 20th anniversary, and we hope you will treat that milestone as a reason to either support Custom Made for the first time or increase your annual gift so we can launch into our next 20 years.
Custom Made gives work to scores of local actors, technicians, designers, and directors each season, all of whom need a home in the Bay Area. We create high quality, affordable art that promotes socially conscious theatre while being entertaining and accessible.
Won’t you take up our 20s campaign, giving us $20, $200 or $2,000? Every donation helps!
We also are continuing to offer chair plaques for a $500 gift. If you donate $500 or more, we’ll be in touch to see what you want on your chair in our Sutter St. theatre.
For all gifts over $1,000, you will be added to our lobby donor wall.
For all gifts over $5,000, you are eligible to be an associate show sponsor, in which your name will be on our programs, and you’ll be invited to opening night and the first read.
For all gifts over $10,000, you are eligible to be a show sponsor, in which your name will be on posters, postcard, and programs for the show of your choosing, as well as be invited to first read, designer run, and be offered additional opening night tickets.
Thank you for your gift, we appreciate you more than we can say!
