The LCCC is a nonprofit organization that exists to enrich the community through the arts, in the historic Delake School. But while these programs are often memorable and meaningful, they aren’t necessarily profitable. Because ticket sales and entry fees do not cover all of the center’s expenses, they rely upon donations from supporters to fill the gap in their annual budget This year, they’ve got to raise $28,000 before Dec. 31. But here’s the good news: they’re already more than halfway there. Members of the Cultivators Club, a committed group of early donors, have pledged more than $17,000 to the campaign, as a challenge to their friends and neighbors.
The Lincoln City Cultural Center is a small organization, and every donation makes a difference. A check for $200, for example, would pay their electricity bill for a cold, rainy week in January. A payment of $100 would enable 20 second-graders to see the charming musical version of “Charlotte’s Web” in March. Or a donation of $50 would keep the center stocked with copy paper for a month. It is easy to give you can go online and donate using a credit or debit card on their secure pay pal system or stop by, take a tour of the center and drop off a check. You can also do a sustaining donation giving a designated amount each month to help the center cover their expenses. The center is open 10am to 4pm Wednesday through Monday.
