The Churubusco High School Fine Arts Department is funded entirely through the generosity of our community. Productions are not possible without the support of theater patrons and ticket purchasers. By making a contribution, you are enabling us to provide our students with unique performance experiences that will prepare them for a variety of careers and help nurture future community leaders who support and understand the importance of the performing arts.
The Churubusco High School Fine Arts theater patronage fund was established in 1975. Donations to this fund help pay for sound equipment, lighting, set pieces, storage facilities, costumes, etc. Also, a percentage of the collections go into an endowment fund held by the Community Foundation of Whitley County and a scholarship is awarded to a senior Thespian each spring. When you choose to be a patron or business sponsor, your name/business will appear in our programs for the 2023-2024theater season. All gifts are tax-deductible.

LIGHTS UP! CAMPAIGN
The Churubusco High School Fine Arts Department is beginning a new campaign this year to replace and upgrade our 40-year old stage lighting and house lighting system. LED lights will provide a huge advance in technology, which will expand the educational experience for our student performers and technical crew and enhance each production for our audience members. A viable and active performing arts department is one of the strengths of Churubusco High School and an important part of bringing our community together.
We are introducing our "Lights Up!" campaign, in which we are looking to raise $195,000 to replace and upgrade our auditorium lights and stage lights at Churubusco High School. We are in the process of securing funding by applying for numerous grants, seeking donations from corporations and businesses, and approaching our community members and alumni to contribute towards this major project. Donations of all sizes ($25, $50, $75, $100, $250, $500, $1000) will help us in enriching, educating, and inspiring our students and audiences by reaching beyond the walls of our school to our community. The future of the CHS Fine Arts Department is bright and our students deserve the facilities to showcase their talents for many years to come.
All donations are fully tax-deductible. Thank you for donating to the "Lights Up!" campaign for the Churubusco High School Fine Arts Department.
