We now find ourselves at the 11th hour with a $30K funding shortfall to address in order to continue our 20 year tradition of nurturing innovative and exciting talent. We’ve applied for every local, state and federal disaster relief grant and already raised over $25K through board efforts but we are going to need the entire Lodge family’s help getting out of this particular pickle.
As you may already know the Lincoln Lodge is singularly unique in being a non-profit situated in the main stream of the essentially commercial business of live stand-up comedy and as such we don’t have investors, venture capitalists or ‘side hustles’ to bail us out. All we have to pull us through is the community of artists and fans for whom we have strived to provide opportunity and affordable entertainment to for the past two decades.
Aside from monetary contributions we also need an even more important resource....you! With the opening of a new 3-theater and training center complex our volunteer non-profit human resources are stretched impossibly thin so we're looking for folks who like to roll up their sleeves and get stuff done in support of Chicago and the performing arts. If you'd like to join the team please call us at 773-251-1539 or email [email redacted] to discuss.
