Giving to Gettysburg College

Priority to Support: The Majestic Theater

In addition to being the Majestic’s 95th birthday, 2020 marks the 15th anniversary of its $16.5 million dollar transformation.  During the initial transformation in 2005, the College replaced several major theatrical systems that were worn-out or outdated, and similar replacements have continued in subsequent years.  A new, generous matching grant from the Warehime Foundation presents the Majestic, and its friends, with a unique opportunity to establish a permanent endowed fund, to help ensure that we can meet its equipment needs – from lighting, to cinema speakers, to stage dimmers, to soundboards, and more – well into the future.  In order for the Majestic to receive the full benefit of this matching grant, $100,000 in gifts and commitments must be secured by June 30, 2021.  Gifts of any size will help us reach this goal, and keep the Majestic shining for years to come.  

For more information about the Majestic and the Warehime Foundation Matching Grant, please contact Laura Runyan, Director of College Grants, at lrunyan@gettysburg.edu or 717-337-6505.
