“We joined the Ovation Society to help this uniquely New Hampshire institution thrive over the long term and so that other families will have the opportunity to experience the culture, education and entertainment the CCA has to offer.” – ROY AND TRISHA SWONGER, OVATION MEMBERS SINCE 2005
What is the Ovation Society?
The Ovation Society consists of more than 100 committed individual donors who support the ongoing work of the Capitol Center through multi-year leadership giving. This generous annual base of support provides consistent, significant and sustainable funding for our work.
Who can join? Is there a minimum commitment?
Ovation Society membership is open to any CCA donor pledging a minimum of $5,000 over a five year period. Most new Ovation members make an entry-level pledge of $1,000 per year for five years, although many have committed to higher pledges of $1,200, $1,500 or $2,000 per year.
Are members expected to pay the yearly pledge all at once?
We are pleased to offer our Ovation Society Members great flexibility in how and when to make pledge payments. Members can choose to remit their pledge in one, two or four payments per year on a schedule of their choice. Members pledging $1,200 per year or more may also choose our new automatic monthly payment.
Why do you require a pledge form?
By signing a pledge form, you are letting us know when and how you would like to be invoiced for your payments, how you would like to be listed in the Playbill, and most importantly, providing the important material we need to record and book your pledge in accordance with accounting best practices. Thanks for understanding!
