Thank you, Lightbulb Family

If you give to The Lightbulb Project, no matter the amount, you are invited into the Lightbulb Family.  Family members are not only listed in our programs: they alone are invited to receive our monthly newsletter, to attend special Family events, and to participate in conversations open only to Family members.  Throughout the year, our Artistic Director will reach out to local or visiting Family members to invite them to casual gatherings with himself and other company members to get to know each other and to talk about whatever is on our mind.  All Family members are welcomed into special online Family forums and Family-only dialogue on all things Lightbulb.

Founders Club

Donate $100 or more

The purpose of the Founders Club is to give an extra space to gather for those who have truly invested themselves in our beginning, perhaps in a more sacrificial way.  The Founders Club is for those individuals (not organizations) who give at least $100 at any point in 2022.  Each quarter, the Founders are invited to get together somewhere casual to talk amongst ourselves about things that matter to us.  Founders are also invited into online conversations about the Project that are exclusively for them.  And when a Founder goes to order a ticket or group of tickets, the question is always: "How much would you like to give for your ticket(s)?"  Posted ticket prices are irrelevant.  You say the price, even if it's zero dollars.  You're a Founder.  You see the show.  For life.

The Firmament is that collection of individuals and organizations whose gifts to the Project have been most notable.  The giving threshold for this exclusive group, in our first year of existence, is $500.  The names of these individuals and organizations will be given special honor in our programs and on our website throughout 2022, as well as in our inaugural Lightbulb Project publication.  And of course, individuals inducted into this first year of the Firmament will forever be among our Founders, as well.
