Piccadilly Puppets is happy to announce that we have received funding for the current 2013-14 season from the Fulton County Board of Commissioners, through the guidance of the Fulton County Arts Council. Fulton County is the leading public funder for the arts in the State of Georgia. It is wonderful to live in a county that understands the importance of the arts to our community. Our grant from the Fulton County Arts Council supplements our main source of income, which is the fees we charge for performances. This enables us to hire skilled, professional puppeteers and pay them a competitive wage, while still keeping our prices affordable to most groups. We can also give back to the community through occasional discounted or even free performances. Through the application and review process and final reports, the arts council also helps us to set goals, to meet artistic standards, to be financially responsible, and to be held accountable for the way we spent the funds at the end of each year. These grants benefit not only our organization, but more importantly YOU, as our audience. Please join us in thanking the Board of Commissioners and the Arts Council. If you live in Fulton and enjoy the arts, please let your Commissioner know!
On November 13th, our community will come together for a special 24-hour online giving event called GA Gives Day and we need YOU to join us! Piccadilly Puppets hopes to raise $2000 in 24 hours to help us produce a new show (and keep the lights on at the same time). This is YOUR chance to make a real difference, right here in our community.
Of course, you don’t HAVE to donate to Piccadilly Puppets. There are hundreds of other wonderful organizations taking part, too.

The site is actually up & running all year long, so it doesn’t have to be done on Wednesday.
