I’m psyched to report that WildClaw Theatre has won a Chase Community Giving grant. CCG was a national campaign in which charities and non-profit organizations had to acquire votes through a Facebook application. The top 200 vote-getting organizations nationwide all receive at least $20,000, with the top 5 positions getting even bigger prizes.
WildClaw finished the drive at #200! Talk about skin of the teeth.
It’ll be exciting to see what these new funds can (and will) do for a company the size of WildClaw. Bring on the scary.
The winner of the drive is The Harry Potter Alliance, a literacy and human rights group. Congratulations to them, to us, and to the 14 other small Chicago theatres who won grants.
And THANK YOU to everyone who voted for WildClaw! We only won the 200th spot by a few votes, so every effort absolutely mattered and counted!
