Grant Match Campaign


A remarkable thing happened. An anonymous individual, through the Blue Mountain Foundation, has pledged $50,000.00 towards completion of the Gem if an additional $50K can be raised by January 15, 2022. It is an all-or-nothing pledge and if successful would place Gem in the middle of the audio/visual stage, the final piece of the project renovation.
This is a tall order for just under two months. The Hodaka coin campaign currently underway can be wrapped into this and there will be another big engraved paver push. Gem is listed in the Valley Giving Guide this year, but beyond those things, we believe that revenue will be needed from other partners to reach $50K in time. We will have more to say about this development in the coming days.

We need to raise a match in order to receive any funds. If we can raise a 50% match, which works out to $50,000.00 by January 14, 2022, they will match that amount! Every dollar you put towards the effort has the potential of equalling $2!

Every dollar helps so please consider a donation in any amount. We are an IRS-qualified 501(c)3 organization and all donations are tax-deductible. You will receive an e-mail receipt for tax purposes.

The sidewalk areas in front of the Gem Theatre & Star Saloon will be custom paved using engraved pavers with the names of the donor(s) who donated each one! What a great way to leave your mark on the project.  The pavers are 8" x 12" and will be engraved with 1" letters. There is a maximum of 4 lines available per paver with 13 character spaces per line. The example shown is for style of lettering only. The final product will only have 4 available lines of text. When you fill out the Donation Form, download the form from the link below and put the lettering exactly as you want it to be on the paver. Each line will be automatically centered and you can have no more than 13 characters per line . Once filled in, please e-mail the form to BRICK LAYOUT MANAGER. The Hodaka Club donor pavers will be placed in front of the Star Saloon/Hodaka museum while the theatre/auditorium donors will be placed in front of that compartment. You need to specify which area you are requesting. If no request is made, the default location will be in the theatre area. We are charging $135 per paver which includes the engraving. We are accepting funds for these on a first come, first served basis.  Our goal is to have the entire sidewalk with pavers installed in time for Hodaka Days 2015 at the end of June. If all pavers are sold, after expenses Gem Theater project will net $52,000.00! engraved they will be there for the next few centuries! Remember - your brick's lettering cannot be changed after it is engraved.
