Unlock the Spirit of Giving During the Center’s 2023 Year-End Giving Campaign

November 28, 2023

We need your support to “Unlock the Spirit of Giving” Beetlejuice: The Musical-style this holiday season. The Year-End Giving Campaign is out of this “Netherworld” and takes place during the season of giving. Thank you to Kessler-Fahrenkrug Funeral Home for providing a generous $10,000 gift match to the campaign. With their support, every dollar donated to the Fox Cities P.A.C.’s Year-End Giving Campaign will be doubled, up to $10,000.

Whether you give $1 or a $1,000, you help ignite curiosity, shape new perspectives, form connections, and build an empathic and strengthened community.
Emily Ponkratz - Fox Cities P.A.C. Senior Manager of Development

During the Fox Cities P.A.C.’s 20th Anniversary Season, donors helped make it possible for 15,612 students, educators and chaperones to see classroom lessons come to life through the Amcor Education Series. Of those attendees, 927 were provided scholarship tickets allowing students to have an educational experience without a financial barrier. Shelby McCauley, 6th grade English Language Arts teacher at Neenah Middle School knows first-hand how important donations are to make it possible for students to attend education performances. On October 3, 2023, Neenah Middle School brought more than 550 students to the Fox Cities P.A.C. to experience the interactive and engaging Step Afrika! performance as part of the Amcor Education Series.

The donations are why we are able to come to the Center and why we can reach so many students with this experience. Being able to experience cultures and traditions from around the world that we can’t bring to the classroom or don’t have in the area is so impactful.

You can help educators like Shelby bring students to experience the performing arts in a way that will change how they see the world, themselves and those around them. And it doesn’t stop there! Donations to the Center help cover program costs to offer opportunities for high school students to grow in confidence, creativity, and collaboration skills while making long-lasting friendships based on the shared passion of the arts through the Center Stage High School Musical Theater Program and the P.A.T.H.S. Program.
