Proposed Measurable Outcome(s)

1. To refurbish our historical theater building through installing new shingles. 2. To preserve the integrity of said historic building by preventing deterioration and water leaks to the building 3. To preserve the uniqueness and historic accuracy of the building as far as feasibly possible. 4. To continue to be able to provide a safe, accessible, comfortable venue for the presentation of theater and other cultural events available to hundreds of residents in the West Central Minnesota area. 5. To continue to provide a safe, accessible, comfortable performance space for area actors, musicians, and artistic support personnel to practice and improve their crafts. 6. To continue to provide meeting space for private groups and non-profit organizations.We will measure the project by the amount of targeted grants and donations we can raise in one year. Specifically, the donations received due to our fund-raising efforts will be a measurement of community support. We plan to fund the project donations totally 20% of the cost of the project. In addition, we plan to devise a survey to measure satisfaction of our audiences and members with the visual aspects of our recent renovations. This survey may incorporate other questions pertaining to our organization as well. The survey will give Prairie Wind Players a sense of what draws first time customers, and what is the incentive to return.

Measurable Outcome(s)

Our facility's useful life as a performing arts venue has been extended another 20-30 years.
