Charter Oak Reaches Critical Capital Campaign Milestone
In an email to friends and supporters this morning, Charter Oak Cultural Center Executive Director Donna Berman announced that the arts, cultural and social justice non-profit reached the 90 percent threshold in its capital campaign – raising over $500,000 over the last four months and bringing the total to $4.1 million. Reaching this milestone means that Charter Oak can officially break ground on the project!
With the dollars raised, Charter Oak will:
Restore our original 1876 historic synagogue building and fully renovate our newly acquired building at 25 Charter Oak Ave.
Make improvements to the surrounding grounds allowing for the creation of a unique youth arts education campus in the middle of downtown Hartford.
Expand from three to eight state-of-the-art instructional spaces and build a seasonal outdoor classroom space. With the new classrooms, Charter Oak expects to double the number of arts and music courses offered from 20 to 40 thereby expanding the number of Hartford children and youth served from 1,000 to 1,500.
Inspired by this progress, Charter Oak’s Board of Directors is doubling donations dollar for dollar through September 30, up to the first $10,000.
