Thank you for taking the time to make a tax-deductible contribution to the Arts Council of Greater Kalamazoo.

While the world around us has been in flux over the past several weeks, there are so many stories of hope and positivity happening within the arts and culture communities. Our goal is to offer arts and cultural experiences in all shapes, styles, and forms to inspire the community we serve. We focus on creating lasting connections and a foundation of resources that can contribute to the success of arts organizations and individual artists in the months and years to come. We believe the arts community will come out of this difficult time with a renewed sense of purpose and appreciation for the strength of our creative community.

Understanding that COVID-19 has created financial difficulties for families, we recognize you may not be able to help at this moment. If you are able, we urge you to donate today to assist us in providing resources and stability for artists and arts organizations so badly needed right now.

Between now and September 30th your donation will double in size thanks to an anonymous donor that has generously come forward to match your gift, dollar-for-dollar, up to $50,000. That’s $100,000 to support dance, theatre, music, painting, sculpture, photography, public art, and so much more. Each year approximately 187 artists and arts organizations look to the Arts Council of Greater Kalamazoo for information, resources, and support. Your donation to the Arts Council provides us with the resources to help artists continue to grow and thrive. We are also proud of the fact that 88% of our budget goes right back into the community supporting programs like Art Hop, Summertime Live, All Ears Theatre, Art on the Mall, as well as our fiscal sponsorship and grant programs. We appreciate your support and the support of others like you. Your donation ensures that we can remain engaged in creative expression that defines who we are as a community, enriches us, and makes Kalamazoo a vibrant and special place to live.
