Donate to OHPAA Through Google Checkout

Google Checkout, the online shopping service operated by Google, has agreed to allow OHPAA to use their service to collect donations from visitors to our website and blog. The really cool part of it is that Google isn't going to charge us the normal credit card transaction fees and gateway fees and such that we'd be charged if we used a conventional merchant account. So 100% of your donation goes to support OHPAA's operation. Now that's kewl!

I'm still working on the details for various sponsorship and membership levels. If you have any ideas, post 'em as a comment or send 'em in email.

I will be answering my question about why organizations like OHPAA can operate as non-profits in the near future, (It'll probably be a couple of posts to do it justice), but in the meantime, consider this:

  • The Empress Theatre is the only live theatre west of I-215 in the Salt Lake Valley.
  • The Empress Theatre building is listed on the National Register of Historic Places for both its role in local history and its architecture.
  • The Empress Theatre is dedicated to providing family friendly entertainment; which means wholesome and clean shows at an affordable price.
  • The Empress Theatre is becoming the social "center place" in Magna.
  • The Empress Theatre provides a place for local youth to work and learn after school, and provides a significant educational experience.
  • The Empress Theatre is helping to revitalize Magna Main Street by attracting patrons from around the valley and beyond.
  • The Empress Theatre and OHPAA partner with other local organizations to help bring a measure of culture and art to the West Bench.

If continuing any of these things is important to you, then please click on the 'Donate Now' button on the left side of this blog or on our main website, and make a generous contribution.
