With your help and support, today has been an epic success for the 78 Arts Organizations participating in the first ever Arts Day of Giving. We want to thank you for your involvement, dedication and contributions to help make the Sacramento Region a place where the arts can thrive. As of 2:30pm today, over $240,000 has been raised from generous donors like you!
Since 1987, the Arts and Business Council has been dedicated to providing arts organizations and artists with the tools they need to not only present, perform, exhibit, and create - but also to be professional and successful enterprises so more people can consistently benefit from the arts. We are honored to be by your side, supporting our creative community.
Please give what you can TODAY to the Arts & Business Council on Monday, April 29th for the Arts Day of Giving so we can continue this work. Funds raised will be used to support the Flywheel Incubator Program and new retail location at the Downtown Plaza, creating opportunities for artists and organizations to connect with the community, sell their wares and teach their craft. The Flywheel program has helped arts groups secure venues, plan their businesses, raise funds, win awards, grow audiences and become stable contributors to our economy and community.
