MAKE A CONTRIBUTION TO KIDZ KONNECTION TODAY

The Academy Building in Clinton was built in 1801 for use as a school to prepare local students for college. The teacher lived upstairs and taught in classrooms downstairs. The building has been used since in many community service roles including a community hall, a dance company, and Clinton Youth and Family Services.  Today the building has been partially restored by the First Church of Christ Congregational with help from the Clinton Historical Society, but the upstairs second floor has remained out dated with flooring and ceiling additions that date back to the 1970’s.  We hope to restore this part of the building not only as a more functional space for our acting community, but also for its future integrity and the continued preservation of the historic district of Clinton.

Donations will go directly toward this capital campaign, which includes:

  • A new hardwood floor suitable for
    extensive production use and dancing
  • Removal of the 70’s drop ceiling and restoration
    of the original peaked ceiling
  • Equip with stage lighting for a more professional
    black box venue experience

 

Eight Events have been organized during the 2019-2020 season to reach our goal.  There’s something for everyone.  We’d love for you to participate in any one or more of our upcoming events as a great way to support our project fundraising goal!  Time to SEIZE THE DAY with us! Be part of the growing magic that is only Kidz Konnection in our little shoreline community of Clinton!

Where does your donation go?

Kidz Konnection is a non-profit organization so all donations, tuition, ticket sales, snack sales, and any other form of income go directly back into our company.

We are currently working towards our goal of raising $25,000 to restore the Historic Academy Building where we are located.

Donations will go directly toward this capital campaign, which includes:

Tuition: We use tuition from classes and productions to pay for our Academy Building, performance spaces, set pieces, paint, backdrops, costumes, props, utilities (such as heating and electricity), the salaries of our employees, other studio necessities (such as toilet paper, paper towels, cleaning supplies…etc.), transportation, and advertisements.

Ticket Sales: All proceeds that come from from ticket sales will generally be used to pay for any of the above necessities that were not covered by tuition.

Snack Sales, Fundraisers, and Donations: All of our proceeds from snack sales and fundraisers go towards our scholarship and intern programs. We offer partial and full scholarships to low income families that would otherwise not be able to participate in our programs. We offer seasonal internships to high school and college students looking to gain experience in communications, business, education, or performing arts related fields.

Kidz Konnection’s mission is to provide a safe, educational, and fun environment for today’s youth through theater. We want all children to be able to participate regardless of their family’s socio-economic class.
