Give More and Stratford Gets More!
The Annual Fund is vital in helping Stratford Hall meet its mission on a daily basis. Now is a great time to make your first gift to the Annual Fund, or to give more! Your gift may result in Stratford Hall receiving matching funds. Any new gifts of $250 or more and any increase in prior gifts above the $250 level will be matched dollar for dollar by the Annual Gift Matching Fund.
For instance, as a first time donor*, your gift of $250 will leverage $250 in matching funds. A gift of $500 means an additional $500 for Stratford Hall. For current donors, if your last gift was $300 and you increase your gift to $500, Stratford Hall will receive a $200 match – the amount of your increase.
These funds will be available for a limited time. Please give today! Include “Annual Gift Matching Fund” in the Note field below. Questions? Call (804) 493-8919.
*Also applies to donors who have not given in three or more years. (No gift since 2012.)
Great House Restoration Challenge
The clock is ticking and we need you! Stratford Hall has received two challenge grants totaling $250,000 for restoration of the Great House. We must raise another $250,000 by April 1st to receive these grants. Your support is critical to our securing these funds. This is the first comprehensive restoration of the Great House since Stratford opened its doors to the public in 1929, and it will preserve this iconic structure for generations to come. Please add “Great House Challenge” in the Note field below so that your gift can count!
Kindly note! A gift can count toward either the Matching Fund program or the Great House Restoration Challenge. One gift cannot be used for both. Please specify in the “Notes” box whether you’d like to donate to the Matching Fund or the Great House Restoration.
