As a new non-profit organization, Mo`olelo must rely solely on donations from the community in order to create and produce quality plays that engage the hearts and minds of our patrons. We are actively seeking donations both large and small to help produce our inaugural season. All donations are tax deductible to the fullest extent of the law. If you are interested in contributing to our mission, there are several ways in which you can help:
Mo`olelo is seeking a select group of individuals and companies to help fulfill its mission to Create, Produce and Educate by joining the company’s Founders Circle. The Founders Circle was created to provide financial aid through a one-time, $5,000 donation to assist the company in its first year of production. As a member of Mo`olelo’s Founders Circle, you’ll have the benefit of knowing that your contribution is going towards a creating positive change in the world, not only through the audiences we reach but also through the actors and students that we support. In recognition of your generous gift, you’ll receive the following benefits throughout the life of Mo`olelo Performing Arts Company:
• Your name or organization listed on Mo`olelo’s playbills.
• Your name or organization listed on Mo`olelo’s web site.
• Your name or organization mentioned in a Founders Circle press release.
