Major Gifts & Foundation Support
Major gifts and foundation support can make a significant impact on the Flynn’s mission to foster the enjoyment, understanding, and development of the performing arts in Vermont and the region. Many individuals and foundations want to make certain that their contributions are designated for specific programs such as dance, education initiatives, scholarships, accessibility and community outreach, development of artists, or historic preservation and capital improvements. While many such gifts are made on an annual basis, the future of any program can be secured by creating an endowment.
If you or an associated foundation would like more information about making a contribution in support of a specific Flynn program or creating an endowment, contact Development Director Gina Haddock at 802-652-4533 or rhaddockREMOVETHISBEFORESENDING@flynncenter.org.
The following are some areas that need support:
Donors may wish to provide leadership support for specific programs which will be used to enhance the quality, diversity and audience development of a particular art form. Donors wishing to align themselves with a specific performance may be interested in sponsorship.
The Flynn provides a matinee series that serves over 45,000 children from around the state. Major funding is needed to assure quality and diversity of programming and accessibility for all children through ticket subsidies. The Flynn also seeks major scholarship support to broaden access to FlynnArts programs for children, teens and adults.
Accessibility and Community Outreach
The Flynn’s PACT (providing Accessible Community Tickets) program allows an estimated 2,000 or more children and adults with special needs and/or limited resources to attend inspiring world class performances at the Flynn.
Development of Artists and New Works
The Flynn is committed to providing support for emerging artists and the creation of new works. Each artistic endeavor is unique and we welcome a conversation with funders interested in helping us to develop this area.
Historic Preservation and Energy Efficient Programs
The Flynn has received national recognition as an outstanding historic theatre by the League of Historic American Theatres. The Flynn seeks support for its capital fund to ensure that ongoing needs of historical restoration projects are met. In addition capital support is needed to continue to develop energy efficiency programs.
