DONATION CAMPAIGNS
Matching Gift for First-Time Donors
This is happiness.

The Eppes-Jefferson Foundation, Inc., a long-time supporter of The Park Theatre, has just given us an amazing gift. The foundation has given The Park a $50,000 matching grant. Any size gift from a new donor (someone who has never made a gift to the theatre) will be matched by the Eppes-Jefferson Foundation up to a total of $50,000. Donations must be received by May 2, 2020. A seat sponsorship or any recognition gift also counts towards the match. Your gift has DOUBLE the impact. Starting today... your first time is the best time to give!
The Park Theatre Seat Campaign
The Seat Campaign gives the Theatre’s friends, supporters and all-around theater-lovers the opportunity to put their name or the name of a loved one or business on one or more seats. The names or messages will be engraved on plaques on each seat. One of the first seats selected was named by Jaffrey taxpayers, “Town of Jaffrey”, at the 2017 Town Meeting. The Kingsbury Fund has named all the accessible seating in the historic auditorium. About a dozen other seats have also been named in the run-up to the campaign launch.

For 54 years, The Park Theatre was the center of community life in Jaffrey, presenting vaudeville and first-run movies. From 1940 until it closed, The Park Theatre was one of a limited number of MGM film houses. Naming a seat in the new Park Theatre gives contributors the opportunity to take their places in the rich living history of The Park Theatre and help the Theatre complete the acquisition of this innovative, telescopic seating.

A donation of $1,000 for each named seat, in a variety of payment options, assures that the Theatre remains a central part of our community and our region. “Named Seat” contributors also benefit from advance ticket sales, an exclusive annual Seat Party, and attendance to a special pre-opening reception and tour of the newly-completed Park Theatre. The number of seats being offered for naming now is limited.

Please note: Sponsorship of a seat does not include any tickets for that seat. Also, seat sponsorship does guarantee that you will be able to book that seat for an event, however, we will try to accommodate you.

You can purchase your seat with 2 payment options:

1. SINGLE PAYMENT OPTION. $1,000 will be billed to your charge card immediately.

2. 50/50 PAYMENT OPTION. $500 paid now and $500 billed to you in 2020. Payments will be automatically charged to your credit card.

NOTE: In the "Name(s) to be listed for recognition" box, please indicate how you would like the wording for your seat plaque. No more than 2 lines with 16 characters on each line (including spaces & punctuation). If you have any questions about payments or recognition, please call Steve Jackson at (603) 532-9300.
