GATHERING PLACE OF THE COMMUNITY
Ways to Help Support Us
How can you help? We're glad you asked...
Show your support for the PPAC by becoming a member of the PPAC. The annual membership goes from July 1 to June 30 which is the PPAC fiscal year. Membership is $50.00 per person, which means that for husband and wife the amount is $100.00. To become a member, hand or mail a check to the PPAC. You can also pay by credit card on line using PayPal, however PayPal charges PPAC a service charge so PPAC does not get $50.00 if you give $50.00. Membership entitles the member to voting rights at the annual meeting or at any special all membership meeting. Be assured that membership or any contribution will be used to pay down the mortgage principal. You will also get the satisfaction of knowing you have supported our “Jewel of the Foothills”.
Cash, checks or money orders are never refused. Those who find it difficult to give one lump sum may be happy to know that donations of any size can be made on an intermittent basis. Donations can be sent monthly, quarterly or when ever you are so moved.
SAVE MART S.H.A.R.E.S. CARD: NOW EASIER TO USE!
Save Mart is proud to offer churches and other non-profit organizations the opportunity to earn cash with our electronic Save Mart S.H.A.R.E.S. Card. The new S.H.A.R.E.S. gift card program is fast and efficient for your church or organization. The members of your group simply agree to use a Save Mart S.H.A.R.E.S. Card when they purchase their groceries at any Save Mart Supermarket, S-Mart foods or FoodMax store. Pick up a Save Mart S.H.A.R.E.S. Card at the next event in the Performing Arts Center. You can also get a S.H.A.R.E.S. Card by sending you name and address to the PPAC at PO Box 1124, Paradise, CA 95927 or by email to firstname.lastname@example.org. A card will be mailed to the address you gave.
RECYCLE YOUR NEWSPAPERS, MAGAZINES, PHONEBOOKS AND OTHER DRY PAPER:
Support the PPAC by recycling your old newspapers, magazines, phonebooks and other dry paper thru the Paradise Rotary Newspaper Bin. The bin has been refurbished with the help of the Rotary Club of Paradise, Northern Recycling and Waste and Ace Hardware. The bin is located at Ace Hardware, corner of Clark and Pearson. Proceeds from the recycled newspapers are donated by the Paradise Rotary to help support the PPAC.
A seat may be named in the honor of anyone you choose, including yourself! What a wonderful remembrance for a loved one! A brass plate with the person's name will be affixed to the armrest. The name will be there forever for all patrons to see. The first five rows of seats are $2,000 each; all the rest of the seats are $1,000 each. The payment may be spread over a three-year period. This is a great gift and it is tax deductible, too!
You may dedicate another part of the Performing Arts Center in someone's name with a larger gift. Things like the Control Room, the Porte Cochere, the Orchestra Pit, a Dressing Room and so on can all be dedicated in honor of someone. An appropriate engraved brass plaque will be affixed in or near the particular item you have chosen. The ultimate gift of $500,000 will give you the privilege of naming the facility.
In the lobby, prominently located, is the beautifully designed "Friends of the Paradise Performing Arts Center" recognition wall. There on is inscribed for posterity the names of all persons who have made a gift of $5,000 or more. The lists of names not only include individuals, but the names of husbands and wives, families, memorials, and the names of organizations and businesses. Just think if you own a business or company, that name on the recognition wall will reflect your community minded spirit to everyone that walks in the front doors. It is like an advertisement that will go on forever. The price is tax deductible. Where else can you get a deal like that?
Purchase a Life Insurance Policy and name the Performing Arts Center as the Beneficiary.

STOCKS, BONDS AND REAL PROPERTY:
You may donate any of these items and pay no taxes on the appreciation in value from the date of purchase.
CHARITABLE ESTATE PLANNING:
Wills, Trusts and Property can be used as part of Charitable Estate Planning. There are ways to accomplish this and everyone is a winner. This is an excellent way to give and still receive. This method of gifting is best accomplished with the assistance of a professional estate planner. For more information plan to attend an Estate Planning Seminar.
GIFT IN KIND:
Gifts in kind, or non-cash gifts, are gratefully received. Many supporters of the Performing Arts Center have access to goods and services that may be of use to the PPAC. Donors are thanked in writing and may be entitled to income tax deductions based on their gifts.
Your free time and special skills can make a tremendous difference in helping the PPAC bring the arts to our area. By volunteering at the Center you can help offset what would otherwise be monetary expenses in the operation of the facility.
The Support Group is a group of volunteers that provide a great deal of help to the organization. Members can choose to work in one or several vital areas:

|2. Office Help||7. Tech Crew|
|3. Program Ad Sales||8. Facility Cleanup|
|4. Publicity||9. Grounds Maintenance|
|5. Backstage Crew||10. Hospitality Team|
Anyone with experience in or interested in volunteer work in any of the above areas should call the office at 872-8454 and leave your name and phone number. The coordinator of the support group will contact you. We desperately need more volunteer workers. Your support is vital to keeping the PPAC functioning in our community.
