Koresh Capital Campaign for a Home in Movement
Over the past year, we have been settling into a new location, the former theatre-turned-gym at 2002 Rittenhouse Square. Featuring additional studios, a black-box theatre, expanded office support space, and a multi-media suite, these amenities have enabled us to increase the number of class offerings. We can now focus on growth opportunities such as hosting guest companies from around the world, and actively nurturing the Philadelphia dance scene through our local artist showcases. Income from these expanded activities allow us to invest in our professional dance company by offering them 28-32 week employment contracts. In addition, the other key components of our mission – outreach and dance education – are being fulfilled at a higher level as a result of our move to the new space.
In order to fully return the building to a purpose that echoes its history and enhances a neighborhood that is steeped in the arts, we have entered into a capital campaign that seeks $800,000 in support from community members. We are happy to announce that we recently received the offer of a 1:1 matching grant up to $50,000 from the Brook J. Lenfest Foundation, and we are actively seeking gifts towards this match. There are several spaces within the building which can be named in perpetuity by donors who wish to make a leadership gift.
Your contribution will assist in expanding our multi-faceted programming.
You are cordially invited to partner with us by investing in our new home. By doing so, you signify your trust in our company and your willingness to share the rewards resulting from the positive work in which we are engaging.
Please discuss your gift with our director of development, Julie George-Carlson. We would welcome a conversation about gifts of cash or appreciated securities, and these can be made in the form of a pledge payable over a period of time.
