Give Where You Live

Thursday, December 7, 2023

Give Where You Live is a special fundraising event that will unite donors from all over to support nonprofits in the Kearney area and improve our quality of life. It is a community effort led by the Kearney Area Community Foundation that allows organizations like Crane River Theater to continually grow and find new donors.

Last year, nearly 200 unique donors contributed more than $35,000 to support our productions and arts education programs. We are confident that we can exceed that total this year with help from all of you. All donations received between now and December 7, 2023, will be matched by a certain percentage from the Foundation, making your donation worth more now than ever before. In order to offer our shows for free or minimal admission, we are dependent upon the support of personal donors like you. Please consider a donation today.


Click the blue “Donate Now” button on the left, and it will guide you step by step. It is a simple process that only takes a minute of your time. Remember you may donate online anytime from now through December 1 and your donation will qualify.

If you wish to make your donation by phone, please feel free to call Crane River Theater at 308.627.5796 anytime from now through December 7.

All checks must be made out to the Kearney Area Community Foundation with Crane River Theater listed in the Memo line. Please date checks December 7, 2023. You are welcome to mail cash, just be sure to mark your name on the envelope, so that you may qualify as a unique donor. Mail donations to: Crane River Theater, PO Box 2141, Kearney, NE 68848. Must be received by December 7.

Visit us at our office at 12 E. 22nd Street in downtown Kearney to share your donation. Plus, if you stop by between 4pm-8pm, you can receive a treat from the big man himself – Santa Claus! Of course you are always welcome to leave your donation on the day of the event at the Kearney Area Community Foundation office at 412 West 48th Street, Suite 12 and they can assist you with your gift.
