Help the State Get a $30,000 Matching Donation!

Every tax-deductible dollar you donate will be matched!

Here is a message we received from the State Theatre.
Consider this in your year-end giving.
Thanks so much – Chris Murphy

An anonymous donor is matching every dollar you give up to $30,000

Dear State Friends:
We have an incredible opportunity to end the year ahead of the game! That’s right. As a nonprofit, we operate on a deficit each month, however, a generous, anonymous donor pledged $30,000 if we can match that amount, dollar for dollar, by Dec. 31. Because The State is privately funded (we do not receive money from the city, state or federal governments), this chance to operate in the black over the next several months seems almost too good to be true!

We need your help to make this $30,000 gift a reality so please help us match it with any amount you are able to give. We have already reached $20,695 so we’re not far from our goal. Please know that every dollar you donate is not only tax-deductible, it goes directly to films and programming.

Your gifts can be made by phone to the box office at 209-527-4697, via PayPal, or by check, and need to be made by Sunday, Dec. 31, 2017. If you are making a gift by check, the check simply needs to be dated before Jan. 1. We are so very excited about this opportunity and hope you are able to help us meet this goal.

Thank you, as always, for your financial support, and for your support as a patron. We could not operate the region’s only independent art film house without you.
