We have been offered an incredibly generous challenge grant: The Conn Family Foundation will match dollar for dollar - up to $25,000 - all donations received by December 15, 2020. Please help us reach this amazing goal, together we can do this!
Here is the letter we received:
Dear Mr. Otto:
It is my pleasure to inform you that the Conn Family Foundation, as part of its 2020 charitable distribution, has awarded a challenge grant to Community Ballet Association, Inc. We will match, dollar for dollar, all donations up to a maximum of $25,000 that you receive by 15 December 2020.
We applaud the difficult decision to cancel this year’s performance of The Nutcracker as an example of your concern for the safety of your dancers and the Huntsville community at large. We also recognize the loss of revenue and opportunity to continue this eagerly anticipated holiday tradition into its 51st year. This grant is not only in recognition of the excellence you have demonstrated in performance, teaching, and community outreach in the past but also to insure that the ballet remains a vital part of the Huntsville artistic scene for many years to come.
President, Conn Family Foundation
The deadline is December 15, 2020.
