A Note from the Foundation
In the Fall of 2007, after over a year of careful thought, discussion and consideration the Princess Theatre Board of Directors established the Princess Theatre Foundation, Inc. The sole purpose for the establishment of the Foundation is summed up in its mission statement which simply says “...the Mission of the Princess Theatre Foundation is to provide operating support to the Theatre, to raise the capital needed to maintain, enhance or expand the Theatre and to create an endowment for the long-term sustainability of the Theatre.” The Theatre Board, at that time, believed that the future of the Princess Theatre was bright, but it could be made even brighter with solid financial footings. Theatres such as the Princess exist throughout the country, and finances are always at the forefront of these organizations. The Princess is no exception. I invite you to learn more about the Princess Theatre Foundation and how you can help. The Theatre has a wonderful history and a promising future, but that future can only be realized through your generous support. If the arts, culture, entertainment and this historic Theatre are important to you, please consider a generous donation to the Foundation. Charitable giving can be a vital part of a well-planned estate, making the most of your personal and financial goals. There are many ways to provide long-term gifts that will ensure that the Princess Theatre will continue well into the future. Talk with your lawyer or financial advisor about the many options available to you. This year as we celebrate the twentieth anniversary of the Princess, I want to remind you about the now annual Cochon de Lait being planned for October 17. Once again we will enjoy good food, friends and music while supporting the Theatre’s Foundation. The Cochon de Lait is only a part of a month-long anniversary celebration of the Princess Theatre’s first twenty years. I hope you will plan to be a part of all the festivities being scheduled to celebrate this significant milestone. Barry C. Stevens President Princess Theatre Foundation, Inc.
