Phipps continues annual fund campaign

The Phipps Center for the Arts has reached 75 percent of its annual fund goal of $260,000 for 2008.

"I invite you to join me and over 800 others in advancing the mission of The Phipps by becoming a member today," said Jim Lutiger, general campaign chairman.

For a gift of $25 or more, an individual receives a subscription to Marquee, the bimonthly newsletter. A gift of $75 or more will be recognized in season program covers. A gift of $275 or more identifies the individual as a member of The Phipps Circle, entitled to discounts on selected classes and invitations to special receptions. As a donor of $1,000 or more, benefits include all those listed plus acknowledgment as a member of The Directors Circle and an invitation to the annual recognition dinner.

"Please affirm your support of The Phipps' programming by giving as generously as you can to the annual fund campaign by Dec. 31," said Lutiger. "I also want to note that first-time gifts will be matched by a challenge grant from the Al and Laurie Hein Trust."
