Art enriches our lives as nothing else can.
Every year, Waterfall Arts and our supporters renew our shared commitment to create community in harmony with nature through the transformative power of art. As we enter our 17th year of existence (!), that connection is more important than ever.
Why do I support Waterfall Arts?
Three years ago, I attended an event where I met Bridget Matros, the Youth and Family Outreach Coordinator, and some of her students. I was so impressed by the work that she – and they – had done, by their quiet passion and poise, that I became a ready convert and made my first gift to Waterfall Arts on the spot. With people like Bridget and places like Waterfall Arts guiding our youth, our future will be in better hands.
Waterfall Arts operates on a shoestring budget, and our dedicated staff accomplishes amazing feats through sheer conviction, energy, and tenacity. I am constantly impressed by how many people we touch: at the Wingding Outdoor Concert, Pecha Kucha, farmers and art markets, and Chalk Walk. These are just a few of the ways Waterfall Arts enhances our community, but it costs money to maintain staff, facilities, and programs.
Art is a risky business. We can’t do it alone. We need our community – and that includes you.
We must raise $30,000 from this annual appeal, more than ever before, to enter next year stronger than ever. So PLEASE open up not just your hearts and minds, but your checkbook to help ensure that Waterfall Arts is here tomorrow, next year, next decade.
Take the risk with us and Feel the Power of Art! Please give generously to our annual appeal. Thank you.
