BUILDING UP to Something Great This Spring

TAKE CARE OF OUR HOME & BUILD OUR COMMUNITY
Be a Founder of a New Friday Night Circus Series

Last Saturday, we launched BUILDING UP, a campaign to raise $35,000 to start $5 Friday, a new, regular open house-style community circus event series. This campaign will help us take care of our building, improve our students' everyday training and performing experience, and create fun, low-cost opportunities for our broader community to discover the joys of circus arts. Please join our campaign - and when you give now through 5/20, your donation will be matched 1:1 up to $7,500!

What's this campaign about?

The full details about $5 Friday and our campaign goals are detailed here, but suffice to say: we're going to make needed building fixes and equipment purchases to create a regular series of fun, low-barrier events where our greater community can try a variety of circus arts easily - and see our students perform (especially on San Francisco's only flying trapeze)!

We have three major funding goals, including roof repairs and revamping the lobby, but we're very excited about the first one:

  • $15,000 to invest in the Main Gym as a training and performance space by replacing the floor mats, re-stuffing the crash pads, and installing permanent show lighting.
These upgrades will improve everyday training and make our $5 Friday performances (and other shows) both easier to produce and higher quality for YOU.

Even more exciting, this week only (now through May 20th), a squad of donors has pledged to match your contributions 1:1 up to $7,500. That means we are almost halfway to this first goal already - and every gift today will get us closer!

So please, give to support BUILDING UP: together we can take care of our home, build a stronger circus arts community, and create opportunities for a new generation to experience the joys of circus arts. Plus, there's some fun donor swag.

Please join our campaign today. Thank you!
