It’s no secret that 2020 has been a gamechanger for us at Children’s Theatre of Elgin. We never thought we’d go an entire year without a live performance, without gathering a 100 member cast to learn and grow together, and without seeing you all in the audience. It has been a roller coaster of a year for us, and we thank you so much for hanging in there with us as we work to pivot and keep serving our community in new ways through virtual workshops, classes, and even trivia nights! We are still able to bring wonderful experiences to people because of support from you. Thank you. 

As we at CTE discussed heading into our fall fundraising season, we wanted to do something that made sense this year, that would help not just us but our whole community, and show that we know and understand there is a real need to come together. We have weathered 2020 because we have an incredible support system, and we want this year’s giving season to pay it forward, and help not only us but also some amazing human services organizations that are working around the clock to help meet people’s needs during this crisis.

So, we are excited to announce our $20/$20 Campaign! We will highlight a different human services organization each week. When you give that week, half your gift will go to CTE, and half will be given to that designated organization. (There will be a quick and easy online form so you can make other specifications about your gift if you wish!) We encourage a $40 gift, to show that $20/$20 can be a positive number after all!
