Thank you to everyone who attended BARDI GRAS on Tuesday Feb 28th at Madame X. A great time was had, music was in the air, and we raised some much needed funds for LOVELESS TEXAS coming up in Fall 2017.

Boomerang’s Holiday Campaign for New Plays…why recurring donations?

holiday-campaign-for-new-plays

Boomerang’s annual holiday appeal kicked off November 29th with an different appeal than usual: a recurring donation.

Instead of asking for a donation of $50 or $100 at the end of the year, we’re asking for donors to make smaller donations ($10 or $25 are suggested) on a monthly basis, as a means of helping our organization grow throughout the year rather than in one moment. How does it help?

Well, it allows us to have a steady income each month, helping us manage expenses when there are lean months when we do not have box office income, grant income or special events. Imagine a steady allowance each month, versus getting a lump sum.

Donation Share Support Fundraising Help Concept

 

Additionally, it hopefully allows the donor to support more work than a larger sum in one donation. Imagine your smaller monthly donations funding projects throughout the year like THE RECKLESS SEASON in April, free Shakespeare in July and LOVELESS TEXAS in October.

So with this thinking, we’ve set a goal of 100 donors pledging $10 per month for 12 months, and 50 donors pledging $25 per month.

This method of giving is revolutionizing fundraising in all sectors of the non-profit and philanthropic communities. For us, it is the most important fundraising campaign we’ve ever undertaken. It is a campaign to raise the most money, to provide opportunities to the most artists, and to produce the most challenging projects we’ve ever developed.

But more importantly, it’s a campaign to support new plays. The writing that will make an impact on our society and be included in the national repertory for years, decades to come.

We need your help to hit all the goals we have, and to deliver on our promises to our audiences and our artists.

You can make a fully tax-deductible donation to the campaign here.

A quiet summer? Hardly.

Hey everyone…although it seems like a relatively quiet summer here at Boomerang, it’s been anything but that. In our first summer without an outdoor Shakespeare production since 1999 (some 18 free shows in parks throughout NYC), we’ve been incredibly busy with preparations for the 2016/2017 season.

But yes, it’s very weird to not be in the park each weekend.

What have we been doing with our time? Well…

  1. We’ve been searching for the right venue for LOVELESS TEXAS, which will make its debut in 2017. The workshop went very well, and the creatives team is ready to take on the challenges of a full production.
  2. To support LOVELESS, we have an online auction going right now of terrific donated items. In all honesty, I want to keep all of these and give them as gifts, but I can’t. We’ve got a wine basket, jewelry, makeup, skin care systems and so much more. You can take a look at all of these treasures here.
  3. In keeping with the musical stylings of LOVELESS, we are beginning work on an alt-country and Americana ROCK-N-ROLES event in September. Expect Lone Star beer on ice and a two-step in your heart.
  4. And the final event of the year will be…well, I just start giggling whenever I begin to type it. So consider it a secret for now. Just know that it’ll be a mash up, throw down party of creativity, performance, booze, silliness, and full madness. Save the date: November 12th.

Plus, we’re trying to go to the beach as much as possible.

More to update as we go. Have a great summer…we miss you, too.
