We are thrilled to announce the receipt of a $20,000 advised grant from a component fund of the Maine Community Foundation. An anonymous Midcoast family that has followed our “efforts to revitalize the Waldo Theatre and would like to help the organization grow and reach its fullest potential” made an unrestricted gift of $20,000 to the Waldo in late October. In addition to this generous gift, they have pledged an additional $20,000 as a 1:1 Challenge Grant, matching dollar for dollar all donations made to the Waldo Theatre between now and May 1, 2019, up to a total of $20,000. This challenge grant is to be used to help put a staff person in place who will work with the board to expand organizational capacity, build community support, help coordinate our capital campaign, and build programming.
