Employee Donation Match
Many companies, both local and national, will match donations made by their employees to PMA dollar for dollar. We have a list of over 200 companies with donation-matching programs. There are many other companies with similar programs. Take a moment to look over the list and encourage family and friends employed by those companies to make a donation. Contact your company Human Resource department for further details. It is a wonderful way to double your donation.
Invest in the Arts
What if you could do something that benefited yourself and your community at the same time? Sounds great doesn’t it? Well, if you have money invested in standard savings, certificate of deposit, or most investments, you probably aren’t earning fantastic interest. Chances are it is less than 4%. However, if you are borrowing money, you will probably be paying a great deal of interest.
We are looking for people who can loan us $3,000 or more at 4% interest. That allows you to receive a significant return on a stable investment and allows us to payoff our start-up debt sooner. We have worked with a banker and an attorney to insure that the contract protects your investment. You will receive a schedule of regular payments clearly showing principal and interest paid.
Your investment will enable us to continue providing excellent arts opportunities in the community. It will also provide you an excellent return on your investment both financially and through the benefit to the community. Please consider this option as you review your financial planning. Contact our office for more details.
Here is a list of items we can use. Contact us if you can help.
If you have any good ideas for fund raisers, we would love to hear from you.
