Bonham Theatre Project is the recent beneficiary of a combined $5,000 donation from Brian and Sabina Coordsen and Phillips 66. The Coordsens contributed $2,500, which was matched by Brian’s employer, Phillips 66.
“My wife and I grew up in and around Fairbury and we went to many movies at the Bonham,” said Brian. “We’ve also taken our kids to movies at the Bonham when back in Fairbury visiting family so they could enjoy it too. We gave because the project is a great cause.”
According to Community Investments spokesperson Rhea King, Phillips 66 recognizes that its employees are the company’s best liaisons with communities. “Offering a lucrative matching gift program that allows employees and retirees to double the impact of their donations encourages support and involvement in nonprofit organizations,” said King.
“BTP is very appreciative of employee/employer matching programs,” said Debby Ebke, BTP treasurer. “I am happy to work with any company to qualify for matching contributions.”
Previously, BTP received $1,000 each from Tyler & Michelle Stewart and The Toro Foundation. The Toro Company, Exmark Manufacturing in Beatrice, employs Michelle.
