ITS Time! 

Time to INVEST in the Hook
Time to TRANSFORM our Future
Time to SAVE the Arts 

ITS Give To The Max, and with your contribution today we can do all of this! 

Hook & Ladder Theater is proudly committed to preserving equitable, accessible and safe outdoor seasonal performing arts presentations in south Minneapolis Under the Canopy for the next DECADE!

This year, instead of again asking our supporters to help us raise $30,000 to continue renting, we are intending to raise $75,000 toward investing in a semi-permanent canopy structure! We expect to get 10-years of use out of this new canopy, which will save the non-profit theater significantly in the long-term! 

The Hook is humbled to announce that a number of local businesses and organizations have already generously committed some necessary matching-grants to help us achieve this monumental and transformative fundraising task! We are also happy to announce that we have one matching grant from 10-25 Tomorrow Foundation already lined-up so your one-time GTMD contribution will deliver double-impact for this important arts organization in 2022. However, these matching grants only materialize with your support!

We are respectfully asking all supporters and attendees of previous Under the Canopy performances these past couple years to consider joining us in making this investment into our collective future. 

To say thank you, every single donor to our GiveMN campaign is invited to join us in The Hook’s Mission Room for a special GiveBack gathering with very performance by Siama Matazungidi & Friends, on Thursday Nov 17th.  

Please consider joining this community and supporting the performing arts in south Minneapolis and beyond with a contribution today. (For those interested in supporting FPAC year-round with smaller monthly contributions, which help us better budget and plan programming activities, please consider joining our MPLS Club 21 Patreon today!

Thank you in advance for your thoughtful consideration. 

Most sincerely
~ Team Hook & Ladder
