Aeolian Hall Musical Arts Association Presents:
"The Cornerstone Club"
The Board of Directors of the Aeolian Hall Musical Arts Association (AHMAA) recently assumed the mortgage of the Aeolian Performing Arts Centre. As a result, this very unique and valuable heritage performance facility is now a fully publically-owned, non-profit registered charity.
To mark and celebrate this milestone in the distinguished history of the Aeolian Hall, the Board of AHMAA has established “The Cornerstone Club”. Membership in this exclusive group will be extended to anyone who makes a donation of $250 (or more) during the period of this fund-raising campaign, which will end in the Fall of 2011. Donors will be recognized on a donor’s wall that will be prominently displayed in the Hall
Our goal is to raise a minimum of $25,000 during this project. The funds will do two things: First, they will cover the (not insubstantial) cost of transferring the Hall to the charity – legal, accounting and land transfer costs, banking and insurance costs, and costs associated with the registration of the property under the new ownership; second, they will provide bridge funding to support our operations and programming for the short term, until the Board is able to put permanent funding in place through corporate sponsorships and government and private foundation grants.
There are huge challenges facing us, but the opportunities that this remarkable facility affords are equally huge. There is much work to be done to maintain and restore the hall, and to enhance our already rich programming. It’s a challenge that all of us associated with the Aeolian Performing Arts Centre welcome, and we hope that you will join us in this first step towards a renewed and even livelier Aeolian Hall.
