Community Theatre establishes Legacy Fund with CDCF
The Cranbrook Community Theatre and Cranbrook and District Community Foundation are thrilled to announce the establishment of the Cranbrook Community Theatre Legacy Fund.
The Cranbrook Community Theatre (CCT) has started their Legacy Fund with a $600 initial contribution. Once the fund reaches $10,000, it will become permanently invested with the Cranbrook and District Community Foundation (CDCF). The interest from the permanently invested capital will come back to the Cranbrook Community Theatre every year, forever, to support the CCT’s operations and programs.
Melodie Hull, long-time CCT member and current board member said, “We are so excited to have established the Cranbrook Community Theatre Legacy Fund. We would like to reach our $10,000 goal as quickly as possible. To everyone in the community, if you have ever come to one of our productions or attended an event in our facility, please consider making a tax receiptable donation to our fund.”
Donations to the Cranbrook Community Theatre Legacy Fund can be made via cash or cheque, with cheques made out to the Cranbrook and District Community Foundation.
According to Lynnette Wray, CDCF Executive Director, “The CDCF is very pleased to be working with the CCT on their Legacy Fund. Our goal is to have this fund reach the $10,000 mark by the end of 2018. We know that people in our community love local community theatre, and we are confident that individuals, families, and businesses will jump on board to support the Cranbrook Community Theatre Legacy Fund.”
For more information about how to make a donation, please contact Lynnette Wray by phone (250-426-1119) or email ([email protected]).
The Cranbrook and District Community Foundation was federally incorporated in 2003 and is a CRA-registered charity. The CDCF is governed by 13 volunteer board members and employs one staff person. The CDCF currently holds a total of over $2 million in 29 permanently invested endowment funds, covering a wide range of interests, including arts and culture, sports and recreation, history, healthcare, community services, and the environment. From 2004 to 2017, the CDCF has given almost $500,000 to local projects and programs.
