Material and In-kind donation pledges have already been made for Phase 1. Support of this nature is a unique opportunity for Bartow businesses to show their support for the community.
Make a single or monthly donation directly from your bank account, credit card, or Paypal.
The nature of construction projects requires large amounts of capital at one time. Small communities like ours are often dependent upon a few major benefactors to support larger endeavors such as this. Additionally, community theaters rely upon city and public funding. We are making every effort to ensure that the underwriting of the Orpheum is spread across the community by creating a co-operative group of founding members who will celebrate its completion together.
Once the structure is sound and the first floor is completed, we will begin holding events in the building, even as we seek funding for furnishings and finishing the second floor. This will allow the community to experience the kind of events planned for Bartow at The Orpheum Theatre.
