ARTS GARAGE Launches 'Give Your HeART to Save the ARTs' Campaign via GoFundMe
To be able to continue and expand its transformational musical, dramatic and artistic offerings, Arts Garage is launching Give Your HeART to Save the ARTs, a major fundraising campaign seeking generous online donations through GoFundMe. (https://www.gofundme.com/
Supporters of Arts Garage can also donate directly from the nonprofit organization's website https://artsgarage.org/
"Our 2020 Annual Campaign, Give Your HeART to Save the ARTs, is by far the most important fundraising effort Arts Garage has ever made," says Marjorie Waldo, the venue's President & CEO. "The National Independent Venue Association (NIVA) announced on October 14 that according to a survey of their members, 90% of independent venues believe that they will close over the next six months due to the pandemic. We have worked passionately to pivot during this crisis to make sure that Arts Garage is not one of the casualties of Covid-19. We want to continue providing the music, theater and art that our audience loves, but we need their help now more than ever."
With the goal of raising $25,000 between now and January 31, 2021, Arts Garage will use the donated funds to support:
+ Emerging Artists programs, including public Jam Sessions, Open Mic Nights for poetry, comedy and all arts, and more.
+ Grassroots Gallery featuring visual art from local emerging artists.
+ Diverse Performance Schedule of live, high-quality talents including Grammy Award-winning musicians and international bands of various genres, appealing to audiences of different backgrounds, ages, and musical tastes.
+ Community Programming, such as Candidate Forums, Palm Beach County Community Forum on Policing, Chamber of Commerce Business Expo, etc.
+ Community Outreach, including scholarships and Our Heartfelt program that raises funds and supplies for Art programs in Delray Beach schools.
