Dear Junior Theatre Supporter,
As families, businesses, and arts organizations, we all are navigating unusual times. What seemed as if it would be a matter of a few months has stretched further into the future than any of us could have imagined. San Diego Junior Theatre is but one of many local theatres that have taken a pause to help ride the tide of this pandemic.
Now it’s time for us to build a bridge to the future to assure we will be there for you on the other side of COVID-19. Your support is a crucial part of weathering the homestretch of the storm.
Since April we’ve been working to pivot our programming to virtual platforms in education, and strategizing with hope and excitement on plans to safely welcome students and families back into the theatre with work that inspires, delights, and educates.
#GivingTuesday is a global day of giving to harnesses the collective power of individuals, communities and organizations to encourage philanthropy and to celebrate generosity worldwide. This year #GivingTuesday is celebrated on Dec. 1, 2020 – the Tuesday following Thanksgiving.
To celebrate, please make a donation of any size to the Junior Theatre’s Resiliency Fund to support our program during this period of evolving circumstances, and allow us recover from this pandemic safer, stronger, and more resilient than ever.
All donations made prior to December 31, 2020 will be matched by San Diego Junior Theatre’s Board of Trustees.
Donating is easy. Make your donation online by clicking on the button below. A pledge for monthly support is also a wonderful way to provide needed sustained support as we work to recover in the coming months.
Thank you for your support of San Diego Junior Theatre. We look forward to seeing you once again in Balboa Park soon. Until then, stay safe and healthy.
Yours very truly,
