Protect the next 25 years of Jet City Improv with safer, stronger, non-ancient front doors.

About the Project

Over the last three years, our donors have teamed up with power2give to help us make some significant upgrades to the old building that houses our theater. With the power2give platform coming to an end on September 30th, we're hoping you can help us out one more time!

When our building made the transition from a 1930's lumber warehouse to a theater, brave men worked hard to shrink and re-fit the giant double doors that now serve as the main portal to Jet City Improv. But time has a way of re-sizing anything made of wood, and the doors that keep our theater safe and secure are loose in their frame and in desperate need of repair.

Large gaps have formed between and underneath each door, and we've had to add larger and larger screws to the hinges to keep them in place. There are no more screws.

Not only do these gaps allow cold air in, they also require us to chain the doors shut whenever the theater is empty. Without this chain, our doors would run the risk of being forced open by the simplest of tools and we could lose everything.

With your help, we'll kick off our 25th Season with brand new metal doors that don't require a chain and keep all the laughter and warmth where it belongs: inside with you.Here's the list of what we're looking to purchase and install this fall:

  • Materials - $3,869
    • Pair of Hollow Metal Doors & Frame
    • Surface Applied Vertical Rod Panic Exit Devices
    • Surface Mount Closers
    • Threshold
    • Weather Strip Package
    • Bottom Door Sweeps
    • NRP Ball Bearing Hinges
  • Labor and Installation - $1,870
  • Paint and paint labor - $275
  • New door signage - $300
  • Campaign promotion - $110
  • Taxes - $551
  • 7% power2give admin fee - $525
  • TOTAL COSTS - $7500

Thanks to the generous matching provided by ArtsFund and power2give, we only need your help to raise $5000 in order to receive an additional $2500 and meet our $7500 goal.

Ready to help us open the door to the next era of Jet City Improv as we prepare to kick off our 25th season?
