Community Foundation Grant

We are pleased to announce that TCP has been awarded a $15 thousand Decatur County Community Foundation large grant. The grant will allow us to replace our antiquated lighting system and the heavy wooden portable stage pieces with new state-of-the art lights and modern, lighter portable stage pieces. The new equipment will allow us to expand our production locations and offerings and will eliminate the need for super men (and women) moving crews. The grant committee was chaired by Bill Blank, who did a magnificent job presenting our request to the Foundation. Other committee members were Judy Mozingo, Dave Stults and Therese Zins. We are grateful to the Foundation for their support of our mission.

Did you know that TCP also has an endowment fund administered by the Foundation? If you arelooking for a unique gift or a local charity, please consider adding to the fund. Annual distributions help us meet our day-to-day financial obligations.
