Building Our Endowment And Our Future
Since 1947, volunteers at the Fort Smith Little Theatre have donated time and talent, while our patrons have generously provided financial support through gifts and ticket sales. Many persons, for many years, have worked hard to keep FSLT alive and well.
It is now our challenge to prepare for the future of our community theatre by building our permanent endowment. Endowment fund monies are invested, with only the earnings spent. The purpose is not to replace traditional funding, but to endow a perpetual fund to support and expand theatrical programs, meet facility demands, and ensure affordable ticket prices.
The FSLT Endowment Fund is invested by the Arkansas Community Foundation, Inc., a publicly supported non-profit organization that develops, manages, and distributes charitable funds. Founded in 1976, ARCF is responsible for more than 2,000 charitable funds totaling over $340 million in assets.
Contributions can be made to our Endowment in any form – cash, securities, real estate, insurance and more. When you review your estate plan, or write your will, please remember that even a small bequest to our Endowment will be a gift to many, for many years to come.
