ABOUT THE SEBASTIANI THEATRE FOUNDATION
A group of Sonoma Valley residents launched the Foundation on the 85th anniversary of the Sebastiani Theatre, April 7, 2009. Our Foundation is not a membership organization. Donations made are fully tax deductible for the donor, as we are a Charitable Foundation with a 501 (C) (3) status.
The Sebastiani Theatre Foundation is dedicated tooffering first-class performing arts, films and creative educational programs that inspire and entertain the entire community while preserving and enhancing Sonoma’s treasured, historic Theatre for the enjoyment of current and future generations.
We have successfully raised the capital to have a modern heating and air conditioning system installed.
Our next projects include updating the exit doors, renewing the seating and handicapped access.
THE NEED TO RAISE MONEY FOR THE SEBASTIANI THEATRE
Box office receipts don't provide enough revenue to cover the costs of maintaining a 80-year-old building. Community support is necessary to keep the theater economically viable, due to high maintenance and operational costs.
