Desert Rose Productions, Inc and The Desert Rose Playhouse are in their fifth year of operation. According to IRS rules, by the end of this fiscal year (July 31, 2016) our donations to earned income proportion must be at 33%. We currently do not meet that requirement and need to raise $20,000 in the next two months to comply with that requirement. If you believe that the DRP is a significant part of our LGBTQIA and theatrical communities and want to see the Playhouse continue into our fifth season please make a donation today! It’s a simple as this – a donation of $100 from a majority of the people on our mailing list would readily meet our annual goal and give the DRP the stability we so dearly need to continue our production and outreach work. It’s not impossible! We are accomplishing our goals in terms of audience satisfaction with many enthusiastic positive comments about our shows from Playhouse patrons and from local and regional press. We are recognized as a valued partner by area LGBT community organizations such as PS Pride, Desert AIDS Project, AIDS Assistance Fund, PS Gay Men’s Chorus, Desert Business Association, etc.; and we receive positive recognition and honors from peer groups like The Desert Theatre League. We are reaching our artistic and community service goals. The only goal that is not being realized at this time is establishing the donated community support necessary to maintain our 501(c)3 non-profit status and effectively finance our daily operations. If we are unable to raise a significant amount of community support in the next three months, we may not be able to continue operations beyond this summer. We need your help today! If you value the Desert Rose Playhouse and appreciate what we do, please make a donation.
