Well on Our Way to Phase 2: Fixing That Leaky Roof
Great BUILDING UP news: Last Saturday, your donations helped us meet the full $7,500 matching challenge, and then some!
We've raised a total of $17,904 together so far - that's 51% of our overall goal of $35,000!
THANK YOU to all the $5 Friday Founders so far. You've helped us meet our match and pass our first goal of $15,000. Thank you for making it possible for Circus Center to improve our students' everyday training and performing experience with new mats and crash pads, and take our ability to produce circus shows in the gym to the next level with permanent show lights.
Moreover, your generosity means we have an almost $3,000 head start on our next goal: $10,000 for ROOF REPAIRS.
Two years ago, we got a grant from the City that funded a first round of vital roof fixes, but the heavy rain last winter showed us that more repairs are needed. Our building is almost 90 years old, and we need to address significant leaks in the men's bathroom, near the trampoline, in the bleachers, and by the theater door into the alley.
It's hard to imagine now with summer on the way, but come winter, the storms are going to come back, and we need to make those repairs while the sun is still out. There's no way around it: being able to make targeted roof repairs now is key to keeping our building safe this winter.
We can't have people in a building that leaks. Not students training, not performers, $5 Friday attendees, or our show audiences. It's bad for you, our equipment, and your Circus Center experience. We need to take care of our building. It takes care of us every day.
Let's stay safe and dry this winter. Thanks to your generosity over the weekend, we're already almost 30% to our $10,000 goal for these roof repairs. Help us raise the $7,098 we need to fix those leaks now with a gift today.
Keep an eye on our blog for updates on the campaign, including when we're installing the gym's new mats and lights. And don't forget your gifts come with fun donor swag - including memberships for the first year of $5 Friday!
Thank you, and let's stay dry!
