Giving Tuesday

Happy Giving Tuesday! While the past few days were all about snagging deals from our beloved retailers, today marks a special occasion to extend our love to our favorite non-profits. As you consider where to spread your generosity, we hope that the Goochland Community Theatre finds its place on your list for a little extra love.

Over the past year and a half, we’ve been navigating the aftermath of the Covid impact, striving to find our footing as a relatively young organization. While our return marked slow but steady progress, we’re now revving up to catapult our growth into hyperdrive. Our fundraising efforts for the rest of 2023 and throughout 2024 are centered on a transformative push to elevate the experience we offer to our patrons.

Our vision? To elevate our standards by investing in top-tier equipment upgrades, enhancing lighting and audio with state-of-the-art microphones, and staging more high-profile productions. Additionally, we’re committed to amplifying the visuals of our performances by expanding the budget for sets and props. We also have plans for making improvements to the front of house and concessions areas. We’re dedicated to creating an environment that elevates every aspect of the audience experience, ensuring they feel truly immersed and engaged from the moment they step through our doors.

Your support is the key to achieving these goals. This Giving Tuesday, your contribution—whether it’s $5, $50, or even $500—will get us one step closer. Every penny donated marks a significant stride towards shaping the future of Goochland Community Theatre.


But wait, there’s more to our grand vision! We’re dreaming big for the future of Goochland Community Theatre. We are working towards our very own theatre and cultural arts center, a beacon for creativity and learning in the heart of Goochland Courthouse. Our aspiration includes a comprehensive visual and performance arts education program for community members of all ages.

What’s unique about our current fundraising effort is that every item acquired is carefully selected with this future expansion in mind. This means that each purchase serves a dual purpose, seamlessly transitioning from our current setup to the envisioned new space. Efficiency is key—we’re dedicated to ensuring that nothing goes to waste, every investment contributing to the realization of our dream venue.

While we will announce more about the Theatre and Cultural Arts Center mid-2024, you can read a little about it HERE.
