Did you know donations and financial contributions are the best way for us to advance plans for restoration and preservation of The Historic Artcraft Theatre? It's true. Movie tickets and concession sales at The Historic Artcraft Theatre are wonderful. Sales of antiques and salvage items at Madison Street Salvage boost FHI and The Artcraft as well. But, it's your donations that move us forward!
Your donations can be made toward our general foundation or to our 100th anniversary "Give 100" fund.
Franklin Heritage, Inc. (FHI) preserves history, restores buildings, including The Historic Artcraft Theatre and Madison Street Salvage, and spreads the message of the importance of historic preservation. When the Artcraft and Madison Street Salvage are open for business, visitors come from across the state and beyond to watch classic movies and purchase antiques and irreplaceable architectural salvage we’ve saved from landfills. These visitors don’t visit just these locations however, they patronize buildings all over Franklin. Every dollar donated to Franklin Heritage, Inc. is multiplied throughout the community with a potential $2 million impact according to Americans for the Arts.
Your financial gift to our Annual Fund is appreciated now more than ever. Unlike ticket sales or concessions, 100 percent of your unrestricted donations go toward furthering our mission to preserve the historic character of the City of Franklin. Donations to our Annual Fund and "Give 100" campaign are 100% tax-deductible. Madison Street Salvage also accepts donations of furniture and vintage goods. And if you can donate your time, we are always looking for volunteers.
If your employer has a matching gift program, check to see if your gift will be matched. Many matching gift programs will match gifts to arts and cultural organizations like Franklin Heritage Inc.
Thank you for your support, now and always, in helping preserve Franklin’s precious past for future generations. We hope you and your family are safe, healthy and happy.
