Our kids are involved with theater because they love performing and creating. They bring many unique talents to the process, proving that the whole is much more than the sum of its parts.
Providing opportunities for our students to grow and showcase their abilities is paramount. It's also expensive.
For example, putting on a musical can cost $20,000 (or more!) by the time the license is purchased and sets, props, and costumes are created.
We're trying something new this year. Based on a very successful model that another local high school uses, we're asking for financial sponsors. Levels of sponsorship have been created, and can be seen in the attached PDF.
Charitable gifts from individuals are tax-deductible under the Boosters 501(3)c organization. Per the IRS guidelines, "If your contributions entitle you to merchandise, goods or services, including admission to a charity ball, banquet, theatrical performance or sporting event, you can deduct only the amount that exceeds the fair market value of the benefit received."
If your business is interested in sponsoring Viking Theatre, please consult your accountant to see how this can be done.
We will still be doing other fundraising events throughout the year, such as Spirit Nights at local restaurants and Spooky Scary Maze, because not only do they help us with fundraising, but also because they are fun, encourage a sense of theatre community, and help keep Viking Theatre in the minds of the community.
Please take a look at the Sponsorship Document and share with friends or family that may be interested in participating. We even have a sponsorship level for students!
