Our annual fundraiser for the Arts Innovator Micro Grant fund is back and live now! Last year we raised $2,500 to give 5 artists from across the county of San Bernardino $500 each to pursue career goals, community projects and other events. With you help, we can double this amount and support 10 artists!!
This is an important resource for our communities and one step closer to building a solid foundation for more public funding for the arts in San Bernardino County! The grant program opens again this January 2021.
Join us tomorrow and EVERYDAY in supporting artists in our region. Whether you can donate time or money, or your voice to writing an op-ed or other reviews for your local papers, supporting the arts is crucial and it comes in many forms.
It can look like joining and supporting your local arts council, in your region, volunteering with a local arts education program to offer workshops for our youth, or writing to your local and regional elected officials to ask them to do more to direct our public dollars into arts programs and grants funds to grow the arts capacity in this region. It is crucial to our continued growth and recovery and vital to sustain our connections as humans living and working together on this planet.
You can donate any amount today and tomorrow, and you will be entered into a raffle to win a 2-hour grant writing consultation with Arts Connection’s staff. Follow the links in our bio to give via our Facebook Giving Tuesday campaign or through our PayPal account directly.
