🎭 Celebrating a Proud Moment: Our Community Partner Award in 2023 🎭
Hello, lovely community! I’m thrilled to share some incredible news with you all! In 2023, I, Marianne, was deeply honored to receive the esteemed “Community Partner” Award from Theatre Roundtable. This recognition means the world to me, as it celebrates our collective dedication to making a difference through impactful fundraising efforts.
The “Community Partner” Award acknowledges my commitment to supporting theater companies and individual artists, as well as my efforts in empowering important causes. It’s a testament to the power of collaboration and the positive impact we can create when we come together to support what matters most.
At “Fundraising with Marianne,” my journey has been one of passion and purpose. With 7 years of experience supporting ovarian cancer awareness and survivors and 5 years of helping small theater companies fundraise, I’ve strived to make a meaningful impact on the lives of others.
My background in Corporate America for 30 years, including a decade as a Scrum Master (aka Agility Lead), has enriched my fundraising endeavors. These invaluable skills, such as effective collaboration, adaptability, and time management, allow me to create unforgettable experiences for our community.
This award is not just a recognition of past achievements, but also a driving force for future endeavors. I’m committed to continuing this journey of impact, empowering diverse communities, and making a positive difference in the world through the power of fundraising.
As I move forward, I express my heartfelt gratitude to Theatre Roundtable for this remarkable honor and extend my thanks to our incredible community for their unwavering support. Together, let’s continue to build a brighter future, one successful fundraising event at a time.
I invite you all to join me on this journey of creating meaningful change. If you have a cause close to your heart and are looking to make a difference, let’s team up and make magic happen!
Thank you for being a part of my story, and I can’t wait to see what the future holds!
With heartfelt appreciation,
Marianne worked with me to write my grant application. We brainstormed together and she made many recommendations that improved my initial draft. Her knowledge of grant writing and knowing what they look for in an application ensured my application had everything it needed and secured the grant for me. Marianne is very friendly and inviting and made the entire process super easy. I can’t recommend her enough. – Peter M.
