As a non-profit organization, Raue Center for the Arts works to improve the community and provide exposure to all of the arts to enrich lives while supporting talented artists from McHenry County and beyond. During the holiday season, Raue Center for the Arts is asking the community to come together to donate a gift of any amount for their End of the Year Drive. Contributions of all amounts are highly valued, as Raue is rallying the whole community to pitch in for this donation effort.
Reasons to support Raue
Many members of the community already support Raue through donations or patronage, but ongoing support is needed to sustain programs like Artful Women and Lucy’s Café. About 84 cents of every dollar donated goes directly into programing for the theater, insuring that there will be wonderful performances to enjoy all year long. Your donation also supports the local economy by contributing to a non-profit organization that promotes tourism and commerce drawn from the Chicago area.
Mission Imagination allows Raue Center for the Arts to provide student admission prices as low as $6 per ticket for shows geared toward young audiences. Your donation will support this wonderful program that allows students to stay in touch with the arts. During the 2012-13 school year, 25,000 kids were involved in the arts thanks to this program.
You can make your donation to Raue Center for the Arts by visiting RaueCenter.org and clicking on the “Donations” tab. Donations are also accepted at the box office or at 815-356-9212. There are many exciting shows coming to Raue this season, and your continued support makes it all possible.
