The Majestic Theatre is announcing the successful completion of its “Dollar for Dollar Match Challenge” that began in June.
A donor approached the Majestic Theatre with the challenge of matching each dollar raised, up to $7,500, to help the theatre recover from the COVID-19 shutdown.
The proceeds generated through this donation challenge provides the Majestic Theatre the necessary funds to continue the basic operations of the facility as it continues to work towards reopening for performances.
When the shutdown occurred, the Majestic Theatre’s revenue stream came to halt. As a non-profit organization, it heavily relies on ticket sales, along with the rental of the theatre, courtyard, and parking lot to sustain basic operations.
While grant funding helps achieve renovation and restoration goals to the historic landmark.
