Join Club 50!

We at the Lofte are excited to offer a new way to support the theatre - Club 50!

Our goal is to raise enough money to pay off 50% of our mortgage by our 50th anniversary so that we can continue to fulfill our mission of Bringing the Arts to Rural Nebraska.

Club 50 comes with benefits for it's members (such as free popcorn, pop, and Lofte swag), and joining is easy!

The mission of Midlands Community Foundation is to benefit the diverse needs of the Sarpy and Cass county communities by providing financial support, involvement and service.

Throughout the year, the Lofte receives generous grants from Midlands that often help pay for expensive repairs and maintenance. Also, every December, Midlands offers the Lofte an opportunity to have all donations matched up to $5,000 per individual through the Midlands Community Foundation Matching Charitable Program. We thank the MCF for this yearly opportunity and hope our patrons and donors take advantage of this wonderful program!

Midlands Community Foundation Matching Charitable Program:

MCF will provide matching funds for NEW contributions made to existing and newly created charitable funds.


Matching donations will be made on a dollar-for-dollar basis up to a limit of $5,000 per individual donor, and subject to a maximum of $100,000 of matching dollars being available in the aggregate for all MCF Funds. If more than $100,000 is contributed on an aggregate basis to all MCF Funds, the matching dollars will be pro-rated among such donors based on the total contributions made.


Matching dollars are for DONATIONS ONLY. Charitable fund event sponsorships and/or event tickets are NOT eligible for matching dollars.

Midlands address: 217 N Jefferson St, Papillion, NE 68046
