The Loveland Stage Company has a noise problem and you can help do something about it!
Loveland, Ohio – You can help the Loveland Stage Company win up to $100,000 for a capital upgrade of their HVAC system. The Gannet Foundation partners with A Community Thrives and MightyCause.com to sponsor a four-week fundraising campaign.
As a small nonprofit, LSC must raise a minimum of $3,000 to qualify for the $100,000 grant.
Their HVAC system is now life-sustaining with ongoing repairs and repairs ($3,000 in 2020) needed to keep it running. The rooftop unit is currently located directly above the public area and creates disturbing noises when the system is running; they are targeting a new location for the replacement unit to resolve this issue. Relocation also opens up other opportunities for improvement to the 1939 theater building, such as installing a walkway to provide a safer work environment for volunteers who currently use high ladders to reach rafter-level sound and light equipment. Atmosphere is such a crucial part of enjoying the performing arts, in addition to pleasant temperatures during those performances.
The estimated cost of a new HVAC system is $106,500, but the project should begin with a detailed engineering study to determine the feasibility and logistics of relocating the HVAC unit and subsequent noise reduction capabilities. The fundraiser is intended to cover the cost of an engineering study (estimated $5,000) and documentation that will be submitted to the Loveland Building and Zoning Department for approval before the project can begin.
