Community “Unlocks the Spirit of Giving” Through Year-End Giving Campaign

January 3, 2024

Thank you to everyone who helped “unlock the spirit of giving” Beetlejuice: The Musical-style by donating to the Fox Cities Performing Arts Center’s 2023 Year-End Giving Campaign during the holiday season. Your generosity to this campaign helps provide opportunities for students of all ages and backgrounds to connect and form meaningful relationships and watch classroom lessons come alive through the live performing arts. Thanks to a generous gift from Kessler-Fahrenkrug Funeral Home, every dollar donated has been matched, up to $10,000, doubling the impact you’re making in our community. Together, we have raised more than $35,000!

From all of us at your Fox Cities P.A.C., thank you to everyone who donated to the Center’s Year-End Giving Campaign. This support means so much for students in our community and beyond. Your gifts to the campaign are supporting opportunities for students to be inspired through the arts, helping them consider new perspectives and become the next generation of leaders.
Emily Ponkratz – Fox Cities P.A.C. Senior Manager of Development

Students engage in the arts through various Center programs because of compassionate donors. These include the following programs and initiatives:

More than 18,000 students and educators will attend performances as part of the Amcor Education Series in the 2023-24 Season. These students will have the opportunity to indulge their curiosity and connect various topics and themes (as presented through the series) to their classroom lessons. By engaging in these performing arts experiences, students enhance their critical thinking and problem-solving skills, broaden their perceptions, and find inspiration. Donations to your Fox Cities P.A.C. help financially support program costs, including keeping most prices for educational performances at $5/seat or free with the use of provided scholarship tickets. Since the Center opened its doors in November 2002, more than 450,000 students and educators in our community and beyond have attended education performances. Thousands of students will continue to enjoy and be educated through the arts in several programs designed to help them build and develop valuable life skills, thanks to the success of the Center’s Year-End Giving Campaign.

Consider strengthening our community by supporting the Fox Cities P.A.C.’s mission as an Annual Partner all year long. Your generosity will help ensure the Center continues to serve as a multicultural gathering place for all.

Thank you to Amcor Education Series Title Partner, Amcor, and Co-Partners, Kimberly- Clark Corporation, Miller Electric Mfg. LLC. and Schneider Foundation.
