Why should I donate?
Your donations go directly toward our program offering. All of the events we offer all are funded by your donations. All who work with our events do so on a volunteer basis. In addition, most of the money that we receive goes right back into the Greenville economy. What benefits do I get from donating?
- Tax deductible - As a federally recognized and registered Non-Profit, anything you donate to us is tax deductible.
- Recognition - Your name is displayed by category at each of our events, and if the event has a program, we include it in there as well.
- Feel Good – You know that you are doing your part to support the Arts and also supporting local artists in the process. You’re helping not just one group, but the entire artistic community.
I am not sure how much I should donate. How expensive are these events to hold?
We try to hold down the expenses of the organization, yet deliver a high quality service by relying on the generosity of our patrons as well as local businesses (mainly in the Uptown Greenville area). But to give you an idea of what things cost, here is the general rule of thumb we use to budget our events:
- Independent Film – $100 per movie
- BluMoon Film Festival – $1,000
- Mainstream Film – $200-300 per movie per showing (similar to the ones shown for “Becoming Ruthless!”)
- Playwright Contest – $150
- River Rock Festival – $10,000
- Theatre Production – $3,000
- Staged Readings – $250 (similar to the August Wilson readings)
