Birmingham Landmarks has created THE FOREVER FUND, an endowment managed by Regions Bank that will provide a permanent source of income exclusively earmarked for major maintenance projects at the Alabama and Lyric Theatres. Many universities, museums, and even other theatres have endowments that continue to grow and at the same time provide earnings for important upkeep. Our goal is $5 million for this FOREVER FUND which will generate $200,000/year in perpetuity to keep our theatres open and beautiful. The fund is governed by the Birmingham Landmarks board of directors and is an excellent way for you to help preserve these historic landmarks.
Won’t you help?
It could be as easy as writing a check to “Birmingham Landmarks Endowment Fund” and mailing it to 1817 Third Avenue North, Birmingham, 35203. Or it could mean including Birmingham Landmarks as a beneficiary in your will. For additional ideas of how you might help the endowment, please review the suggestions below and discuss them with your financial advisor.
While donations of all levels are sincerely appreciated, donations of $10,000 or more will be permanently recognized on the new donor wall within the lobby of the Alabama Theatre. Please do your part to assure that these historic theatres stay open and beautiful forever.
