Your generous year-end financial support combined with the efforts of the Monterey County Gives campaign, will give Project Equal Access the start it deserves. Our goal is to be able to provide at least one advertised performance from each production this year that will be sign language interpreted.  All participating MC Gives non-profits will receive a prorated share of the match based on their total donations during the campaign. Each group may receive a match on the first $75,000 they raise; this ensures the overall match fund is shared equitably among all participating non-profits. Since the program began in 2009, Monterey County Gives! has helped local non-profit organizations like ours to raise over $8 million.  For the Forest Theater Guild to receive matching funds this year, all contributions must be submitted no later than December 31, 2016.  Making your tax-deductible donation today is simple, secure and insures that our shared vision will be realized. Your options include donating online via the link above or at
or by sending your check to Made payable to the Community Foundation for Monterey County

This is a wonderful way to share the holidays…showing our community the strength and resiliency we have through a unified effort for the common good of all. You will also have the opportunity to make your gift in honor of or in memory of a loved one. Together, each and every gift makes the difference; your thoughtful contribution today influences the lives of many in our community in positive ways and inspires and encourages our participant’s, knowing that they have your support.
