children's theatre of elgin / fox valley theatre company


Over the last two years, CTE has lost a total of approximately $120,000 worth of ticket revenue, $50,000 worth of participation fees, $15-20,000 of costume shop expenses, and will incur tens of thousands of dollars going forward in sets, storage and costume pieces that were damaged and had to be thrown away. With an average annual budget of just $230,000, these losses are extensive and greatly impact our organization.

Please consider donating this month to help us recoup the losses we have experienced due to the COVID-19 pandemic and the devastating discovery of mold in our costume shop. If we are able to raise $15,000, the Palmer Foundation will donation an additional $7,500 in additional support.

Give via Paypal, Venmo or submit a check via snail mail to 1700 Spartan Drive H104, Elgin, IL 60123
