Time to Fundraise!
As you know, LSS is an all-volunteer 501(c)(3) nonprofit arts organization, and our mission is to provide an intimate setting for diverse cultural arts events, like our Sunday and Thursday Writers Group, our monthly Fourth Friday Young Musicians Showcase and Second Saturday Showcase Series, and our annual two-night NICE literature-based event and The Polk Street Review book publication. Hosting creative workshops for NICE and The Polk Street Review is part of our fundraising efforts. We also encourage individuals and organizations to rent our beautiful space, which we are (constantly!) renovating.
Of course, attending our concerts and events is the greatest support you can give to an organization like LSS, but we understand everyone is busy, so we offer you several other ways to help us keep the lights on and the doors open!
We have 12 vintage padded pews as our main seating at Logan Street Sanctuary. You can “Sponsor A Pew” for an annual donation of $2500 ~ we’ll place a custom-engraved plaque with your name or logo on the pew’s end!
Corporate Support: we accept both monthly and annual donations via our secure Square Market store from our Corporate Sponsors (click on the Shop tab for the pull-down menu and click Supporting Sponsorships). For our Corporate Patrons, LSS features corporate logos in several ways, including but not limited to our monthly programs, website, Newsletter, emails, advertising, and plaque display.
Other Non-Profits: another benefit of not-for-profit sponsorship is that LSS can offer space for small events, partnerships on video productions, and support for your not-for-profit’s events. Non-Profit partners can support LSS securely via Square Market here ~ https://squareup.com/store/LSS (for details, contact Alys via email at email@example.com) All donations are tax deductible. LSS will send you a donation receipt via email or regular mail (your choice).
After your Square Market donation, please email to firstname.lastname@example.org a good resolution .png or .jpg file of your logo and/or name as you wish it to appear. A tax deductible receipt for your generous donation will be emailed to you. Renewable every year!
Supporting Patrons sustain LSS, Inc.’s ongoing renovations, events, and commitment to being a viable part of Noblesville’s booming cultural arts community. Patrons can support LSS securely here or by downloading and printing the 2018 LSS Donations and Support and mailing it with your check to:

Note to our LSS Irregulars: please pay your annual Membership no later than Feb 1st of every year.
2. Donate to one of our Facebook Fundraisers!
We usually have a few directed Fundraisers running on Facebook:
You Can Make a Difference!
Every little bit helps! Whether through LSS’ Facebook page or that of our partner organization, Sacred Heart of the Rose (SHotR) we often use Facebook Fundraising to raise support funds for operating costs (we rent the cool little historic former church at 1274 Logan Street to hold all of our diverse events). Sacred Heart of the Rose often has a Facebook fundraiser going on to support great events like SHotR’s Tranquility Retreats and other special spiritual celebrations, like last year’s Lughnasa Celebration ~ your contribution will make an impact, whether you donate $5 or $500. Thank you for your support.
3. Renovations (neverending!)
Recent renovations to the kitchen and “Green Room”!
Last year we fundraised and received some grant money that paid for some great counter-space additions in the kitchen and meeting space downstairs at LSS, because we wanted those spaces to be available and useful to YOU when you rent the space or come to an event! We thank you for your help!
Here’s a video of part of our “Green Room”/meeting space renovations:
Donations are tax deductible under IRC Section 170, and can be made at any time, in any amount, and may be repeated. Bequests, devises, transfers, and gifts are tax deductible under IRC Section 2055, 2106, or 2522, and can be made at any time, in any amount.
5. Help us Empower A Maker!
LSS has partnered with downtown Noblesville boutique Love’s Hangover Creations to support and sponsor makers all over the world!
Love’s Hangover Creations owner Emily Wasonga has been a longtime supporter of international maker communities, and she decided to crown her 10th year in business by opening up the channels for sponsorship of makers identified as candidates who would benefit from the support as well as empower others along the way. LSS is thrilled to help raise funds for selected makers. You can learn more about the Empower A Maker initiative and selected makers by clicking here, and you can make direct donations securely through our Square Market store by clicking here. Your donations go directly to purchase and mail the items that are needed by the selected maker receipients to create their products. Sometimes, these materials are as simple and basic as glue. Yes, glue! YOU can be the glue that hold together the literal life and business of our selected maker reciepents!
One of our selected maker recipients is Ms. Imelda, a young card-maker and designer in Kenya. She is currently studying actuarial science at Jomo Kenyatta University of Agriculture and Technology (JKUAT). She is looking forward to graduating in June 2018. Card-making is how Imelda caters for her day to day expenses as a college student and young lady in East Africa.
Imelda is a self-taught card maker. She often couldn’t afford to purchase cards for her loved ones during special occasions and the problem led her to start creating her own. She taught herself calligraphy as well. Soon, people started ordering cards from her to send to their loved ones as well.
A lot of the decor on Imelda’s cards is from salvaged paper products that she stumbles upon, cuts up, and reuses. Imelda, like all entrepreneurs, hopes to continue growing her business. Some of Imelda’s 2018 goals include:
- Gaining international clientele (her cards will be available in Love’s Hangover Creations in a month)
- Offering artistic workshops, especially in children’s homes within East Africa, where she feels there is a lot of untapped talent due to limited resources.
MORE about Donations & Sponsorship:
The easiest (and most fun!) way to support LSS is to come to our events! Sign up here to get on our mailing list. At all events, we put out a glass bowl for LSS donations to “keep the lights on”. At our concert events, we ask for a $10 donation at “the door” that goes directly to the performers. Any additional donations to support LSS to help us stay in our location, which we rent, is greatly appreciated!!!
You can also support is by purchasing t-shirts, our annual The Polk Street Review books, become an Individual or Corporate Supporting Sponsor, and/or donate any amount at any time. We also offer artist gallery space (limited; first come first served) and we have one artists’ studio available for rent. LSS main area upstairs is available to rent for special occasions, meetings, recitals, rehearsals, and includes two bathroooms and a full kitchen (byo-caterer!).
