COMMUNITY INPUT. The Mabel Tainter has enlisted Crescendo Fundraising Professionals to help them determine the best approach for fundraiser.

The Mabel Tainter is one of the few theaters from the 1800s that is still mostly in its original state. In order to continue to serve the community and to keep the theater historically intact, while also giving it a longer life, the institution’s board of directors is studying the possibility of pursuing a $6.75 million fundraising campaign. 

The board contracted Crescendo Fundraising Professionals to conduct a Campaign Readiness Study Summit on July 26. This summit was meant to help determine the financial capacity, leadership potential, general interest, and economic climate for the proposed fundraiser. The study summit will be followed by a combination of online public surveys, focus groups, and confidential interviews to make recommendations to the board of directors.

The public is invited to provide feedback on the project by completing a short survey. To complete the survey, go to the “Development” page on The Mabel Tainter’s website at mabeltainter.org. The deadline to complete the survey is Aug. 15.
