Support

In September 2009 Legion Arts was awarded a $4.8 million grant from Gov. Culver’s I-JOBS program to support the purchase and rehabilitation of historic CSPS Hall, where we’ve rented space since 1991.

Thanks to the I-JOBS award, we were able to purchase the building in June 2010. The construction phase, focused on repairing the damage caused by flooding in 2008, as well as extensive renovations and improvements, began in September 2010 and will run through May 2011.

Since the I-JOBS award was announced, Legion Arts has received generous support — either for the building project, or for ongoing programs — from the individuals, families, foundations and businesses listed below.

Please consider joining them. Your tax-deductible donation today — $35, $60, $150 or more — will support the rehabilitation of a landmark structure that’s served Eastern Iowa as a vital community center for more than a century. At the same time, you’ll be supporting the forward movement of the nonprofit organization that’s bringing that building back to life.

You may be able to double your gift if your employer matches charitable contributions made by employees. Click here for a partial list of local and national firms that do. If you have questions, call us.
