The Fox Tucson Theatre Foundation received a $200,000 matching grant from the Connie Hillman Family Foundation late last year. At a time when the theatre was beginning to work toward re-opening, the grant was a most welcome boost to ongoing fundraising initiatives.
“Because of the leadership level support from the Connie Hillman Family Foundation, there’s never been a better time to support the Fox Tucson Theatre. In a moment marked by a triumphant return to live performances, we couldn’t be more grateful for their efforts in helping shape the future of our organization” said Fox Executive Director Bonnie Schock.
In a silent phase until now, the Fox has successfully managed to raise nearly $75,000 of total possible matching funds and is now opening the challenge up to the public in a new campaign.
All new and increased support from donors will be matched 2-to-1 through the end of 2022 or until all matching funds are exhausted. It will take a full community effort to realize this generous fundraising opportunity.
“Gifts being matched by the Connie Hillman Family Foundation Challenge will help the Fox do even greater events to be enjoyed by everyone in Tucson” said Larry Adamson, director of the Hillman Foundation.
