A Roof for the Puppet Theater

$9,090 of $20,000 goal

Raised by 123 people in 2 months
Created September 25, 2018
In March, a violent storm hit Baltimore and ripped part of the roof off of Black Cherry Puppet Theater. The theater was purchased and renovated originally in 1996, but it was set for a new capital campaign to finish these renovations and make the theater a more usable space in 2020. Unfortunately, the storm hit ahead of this campaign, and a new roof, which was going to be part of that fundraising, is desperately needed immediately. Other avenues for funds to fix the roof have been, and continue to be, investigated. But in six months since the storm, Baltimore has seen a record amount of rain and storms and the temporary measures to keep water out of the building are not holding up, and the inside of the theater is being further damaged. So now, we are turning to you for help. No amount is too small.

Thank you everyone who has donated and shared this fundraiser! We are making incredible progress but there's still a long way to go. We are hoping to reach our goal by the end of October and we are over a quarter of the way there! If donations keep up this pace, we might even be able to bring in the roofers by the end of the month. Keep sharing with your networks and thank you for showing us how wonderful and generous our community is!
