As the year comes to a close, a generous, anonymous donor wants to make certain Chester Theatre is able to say goodbye to 2016 and welcome the 2017 season in the best possible way. We have been given a $5000 Challenge Grant, and we need your help to make sure we meet the goal.

Our challenge is specifically to welcome new donors to the organization, and to encourage past and current donors to step up a giving level. (Our list of giving levels can be found here.) For example, if you’ve been an “Enthusiast” in the past ($100-$249), raising your giving level to “Booster” ($250-$499) helps us to meet the challenge, as does a gift at any level from a new donor. Best of all, your entire donation to us will be doubled because of the match.
We know that you receive many requests at this time of year, and we are deeply appreciative of your past support as friends and audience members of the company. We hope that you will consider a new gift or an increased gift so that we can take full advantage of our generous donor’s thoughtful pledge.
 Warm wishes,
Daniel Elihu Kramer
Producing Artistic Director
PS. Many of you have received our year-end campaign in your mailboxes. Donations mailed, phoned in, or made through our website will all be counted toward the challenge. Thank you in advance for your support of Chester Theatre Company, and I look forward to seeing you at a performance this coming summer!
