    What readers are saying:

    “Funding Your Senior Theatre” is a comprehensive and very informative resource for fundraising and marketing of Senior Theaters. First it gives a thorough history of Senior Theatre with facts that can be used in a grant narrative. Especially useful is the explanation of options for fundraising ranging from family gifts and donation jars at performances to the more sophisticated electronic appeals and crowd sourcing. The extensive list of funding sources at the end is valuable. I especially appreciated the instructions on writing the funding plan, a must for proposals, appeal letters and marketing.

Martha lead one of the oldest Senior Theatres in the US and couldn’t have done it without 32 years of successful fundraising!
