Started in the spring of 2016 by two of our most long standing & generous donors, The Foglia Family Foundation and the Willow Springs Foundation, the Next Generation Fund started off tremendously. Throughout 2016 and into the new year, many of our champions and grass roots donors contributed to the fund with incredible results. We’ve increased our Sage Studio educational program, we’ve acquired a new classroom/rehearsal space, we acquired a new projector for the theater space, and more.
This year the Willow Springs Foundation has offered a matching gift, which means your donation can have twice the impact as we strive for our goal of $500,000.
And we’re nearly there! Since the Next Generation Fund was started, we’ve raised nearly $400,000. With the Willow Springs match and your help I know we can reach that lofty goal.
Please support Raue Center for future generations by giving to the Next Generation Fund today.
