We’ve finally received full approval from the IRS on our 501(c)3 application. (It’s only taken a year.)
Thanks to Charlotte Street Computers here in Asheville we are able to offer free tickets to the Asheville Community Theater presentation of “The Groundling“—a play by Marc Palmieri, directed by Betsy Puckett. At this time, any donation in any amount will get you a pair of tickets to the show on Thursday, August 23. (As tickets fly out the door we may raise the bar, so get yours early!) (The link above will take you to a review of the Broadway presentation of this play.)
What will we do with your donation?
The People’s Park Foundation is dedicated to creation of a public park in the vacant land between the Asheville Civic Center, the Basilica of St. Lawrence and the Grove Arcade.
In the near term we will be creating some fun events in the space, but the broad goal is to raise funds for redevelopment and to set aside 20 percent of donations for long term maintenance of the space. There are no paid employees of PPF, and all money raised will be directed to this project.
We are incorporated as a nonprofit in the State of North Carolina and registered with the IRS.
