NH Gives begins at 5 PM on June 6 and ends at 5 PM on June 7.

The Colonial received a generous pledge from Jeffrey Burt, Jane & Ned Brewer, and Betsey & Chuck Phillips to match NH Gives gifts dollar-for-dollar up to $5,500 in support of a solar array project slated for 2024! This is a tremendously exciting opportunity for The Colonial – solar panels will significantly and responsibly offset The Colonial’s electricity costs, lower carbon emissions, and play an important role in allowing our Theatre to extend its presenting season.

Please consider making a NH Gives gift to support The Colonial Theatre on June 6th beginning at 5pm, and join us as we implement this important solar project and continue to build and preserve a world class performance venue that offers diverse, thought-provoking, and high-quality entertainment where everyone is welcome.



Thanks to the generosity of community members Jeffrey Burt, Jane & Ned Brewer, and Betsey & Chuck Phillips, the first $5,500 NH Gives gifts will be matched dollar for dollar June 6th 5pm-June 7th 5pm!

In addition to The Colonial’s pledge to match $5,500 of NH Gives gifts, the New Hampshire Charitable Foundation and its donors have also made nine “Power of Community” prizes that will be awarded to organizations with the most unique online donors. All gifts made before 5 PM on June 8th will increase The Colonial’s potential fundraising awards – your donation’s impact will tremendously benefit The Colonial!

In further recognition of the importance of this solar array project, The Colonial has been awarded a $51,000 Congressionally Directed Spending Request and a $4,400 donation from Mascoma Bank in support of this solar array project. This NH Gives matching gift initiative will bring The Colonial one step closer to bringing this important project to fruition.

In every way that you choose to support The Colonial, we are deeply grateful.
