christmas campaign | a letter from ron reed

Hey Gang,

This is Pacific Theatre’s 30th anniversary season, and that’s no accident. We got this far with a lot of hard work and commitment from our staff, volunteers, artists, community members, audiences, and, of course, our donors.

I say it often, because it's true – and it's one of the most important truths about our company: without our donors we would never have survived, and flourished. Live theatre is always a risky endeavor, but our vision is clear and your support of first-rate faith-based theatre was and continues to be strong and generous. And now, Pacific Theatre is an essential part of Vancouver’s arts scene.

The goal now is to ensure that Pacific Theatre keeps being an essential part of Vancouver’s arts scene, decades into the future. In 2011 we began building a Strategic Plan to establish the company for the long term, and we're in our second year of making that a reality. Now we need your help.

Change does not come for free. Last year our Christmas Campaign’s fundraising goal was $45,000, to take some financial pressure off the spring and focus on implementing the first year of our strategic plan. And – as in every previous campaign – our donors got us there! This year our goal is just a little bit bigger: we’re looking for $50,000 that enables us to take significant steps towards making our vision for Pacific Theatre’s future a reality.

We know how much you believe in Pacific Theatre’s vision and we know you also want to see us grow into the mature (or at least more mature) company we know we can be. So why not help us get there?

Truly, a gift of any size helps significantly in reaching this goal. Check the tally on the blog! Each year we marvel at how every gift, from $5 to $5,000, adds up to that final total.

Thanks again for helping us reach our 30th Anniversary season! I can’t wait to see what transpires over the next few years, and I hope you’ll be a part of it!
