Support Woodford Theatre in the 2018 GoodGiving Challenge!
From November 27-December 3, thousands of area residents are going to show their support for their favorite nonprofit during the GoodGiving Challenge. During that time, every donation and donor we get will go further to help us claim our share in thousands of dollars in prize money. If you are unable to donate, your voice is just as important to the cause!
Here’s how you can help:
1. Mark November 27-December 3 on your calendar and add this link: https://www.bggives.org/
2. Follow us on Facebook (Woodford Theatre), Twitter (@woodfordtheatre), and Instagram (@woodford_theatre).
3. Spread the word! Let your friends and family know why you believe in our work! Share our #goodgivingchallenge posts to help generate buzz and forward our emails.

“Follow, Like, Share” Daily Sweepstakes on Facebook (For donors, but encourage them to play so they can give to YOU)
Each day of the Challenge, we will make a special post on Facebook. Simply follow BGCF on Facebook, like our “Giving Card a Day” post and share the post with friends! One person who completes all these steps will be randomly selected each day to receive a $700 Giving Card, which may be used to support any nonprofit in the GoodGiving Challenge. No donation is necessary to be eligible.
Ripple Effect Power Hours (Will be announced 24 hours in advance to the nonprofits)
During surprise Power Hours throughout the GoodGiving Challenge, all donations will be matched 50 cents on the dollar by Blue Grass Community Foundation. Follow us on social media to find out when these Power Hours occur, and boost the impact of your giving!
All GoodGiving donations go to our 2018-2019 Annual Fund, therefore all donors will be listed as Annual Fund donors in the remainder of the 2018-2019 Playbill!
Don’t forget! To qualify for a tax deduction in the current calendar year, donors must make their yearly giving decisions by December 31st. If you choose to participate in the year-end charitable giving season, then we encourage you to take the time to ensure that your donations are doing the most good for the causes you care about. Woodford Theatre supports more than 16,000 individuals across the Bluegrass Region and provides local and regional communities with quality theatre and education. Please consider donating to Woodford Theatre before December 31 through the GoodGiving Challenge at: https://www.bggives.org/woodfordtheatre
