On\u00a0March 1st\u00a0it\u2019s time to \u201cGive Where You Live,\u201d as Fairfield County Community Foundation\u2019s Giving Day kicks off. Fairfield County\u2019s Giving Day is a powerful 24-hour online fundraising competition that unites our community around local causes close to our hearts. Last year, the day of giving had extraordinary results: $1,465,246 donated by 13,718 individuals for 414 nonprofits. And, like so many other nonprofits, The Ridgefield Playhouse is participating for a specific reason: to raise money for a new Steinway grand piano and put money into the Bruce Becker Scholarship Fund. Thanks to an amazing discount from Steinway, The Playhouse was able to buy a beautiful 7\u2019 black grand piano for $80,000, which is $35,000 less than its listed price. \u201cThis is an important investment for The Playhouse\u201d said Allison Stockel, Executive Director. \u201cIt will save us money in the long run and help us continue to bring first-rate performers to play here.\u201d All donations made online at FCGives.org and earmarked for The Playhouse will not only help pay for a the new Steinway piano, but will also go towards the Bruce Becker Scholarship Fund, which allows adults and children to take classes at the Playhouse for free. Many donors prefer to make donations specifically on Giving Day as there are many times throughout the day called \u201cpower hours,\u201d when donations are matched by FCCF.
