IMPORTANT CHANGE: Do More 24 Variety Show on March 2 at 8 pm will be virtual only – there will be no live audience. The live stream is free and you can enjoy it from the comfort of your home.
Dear Friends of CSP:
Do More 24!
Last year, Chapel Street Players participated for the second time in Delaware’s Do More 24 Campaign and, through the generosity of so many people, we raised almost $20,000! In addition, we received over $19,000 from the Delaware Division of the Arts (DDOA) via the Spur Foundation in matching pool funds. We presented a Virtual Variety Talent show, which many of you tuned in to watch, and we will be doing it again this year, along with many other special events.
This year’s Do More 24 Campaign begins on Thursday, March 2nd at 6 pm and continues until 6 pm on Friday, March 3rd. Throughout that time period, any gift you choose to make to CSP will likely be increased by the hourly incentives sponsored by a variety of foundations and corporations. In addition, the Spur Impact Association has again provided the DDOA with funding pools to add additional grant monies to its artistic non-profits, and so we have an opportunity for those added funds!
