Goals are dreams with deadlines
We're kicking off the giving season with #GivingTuesday and we hope you'll join us! Our goal is to raise $8,000 by the end of 2015, and we plan to raise half of that TODAY! With your help, we know we can get there!
Your donation will help to support the programs and events of our ever-growing organization in 2016. Check out what we achieved in 2015 and what we have planned for 2016 below!
In 2015, we harnessed our efforts to:
Advocate for more than 100 Arizona arts & culture organizations
Energize our 5,000 grassroots advocates to engage with elected officials about the need for public support for arts and culture
Enhance the capacity of our members to serve their audiences by matching business professionals with them through our BVA program
Honor more than 70 individuals, organizations and businesses statewide for their arts and culture contributions through the Governor’s Arts Awards event.
Expand our advocacy and outreach with a redesigned and upgraded website
Increase our social media presence
Launch a new arts education and advocacy initiative
Mobilize our advocates to participate in more than 50 school finance elections that will put more money into school-based activities, including arts education (37 of those elections PASSED!)
Build awareness of the power and impact of arts and culture
Did you know that many corporations match employee giving?
As an added benefit, many employers match employee donations to nonprofit organizations – dollar for dollar! Unfortunately employees often overlook this benefit and it is easily forgotten when one thinks of donating. To obtain matching gifts from your employer should be as simple as requesting a matching gift form. Some employers will match gifts made up to 12 months prior.
If you have already given this year, any additional donations will be factored into your annual donor level and additional benefits will be awarded.
Our deep gratitude, a letter of acknowledgement

One complimentary registration for Arts Congress
The opportunity to purchase two discounted tickets for the Governor's Arts Awards
