For those of you who thought we were out of our mind to try and raise $20,000 in 30 days (us included), we’ve got a new, possibly more attainable goal. USA Projects has lowered our fundraising goal to $12,000 and extended our deadline to January 7th (our original end date was 12/30). That’s good news because the lowered fundraising amount automatically put us at 26% of our goal. That means that we now qualify for the Artist2Artist Fund which allows us to receive 1 to 1 match funding for up to $1000. So, the next $1,000 we raise means we’re actually getting $2,000 (that would give us a jump to 42% of our goal).
Thanks to 25 very kind individuals we’ve raised over $3,000. If we can just get another 75 people to pledge in the same manner we’ll make it to our goal. Considering there are 4 of us trying to raise that money, 100 donors doesn’t seem that unattainable.
We’d also like to remind people that pledging a donation isn’t an entirely one sided gesture. We’re offering some great “perks” in exchange for your kindness. Some of which include one of a kind drawings by Michael James Armstrong, limited edition wood block prints by Lee Lavy, and one of a kind sculptures by Thomas DeMello. And as always with USA Projects, your donation is tax deductible.
