Our goal is to raise at least $1,000,000 dollars to fund construction of an outdoor performance facility in New Prague.

The intermediate goals are to raise:

  • $500,000 by the end of 2023 (WE MADE IT!)

  • $250,000 more by the end of 2024 (WE MADE IT in 2023!)

  • an additional $250,000 by the end of 2025


Any funds raised above our goal will be used for improvements to the building and site.
