ArtsATL receives a $20,000 challenge grant, launches fund-raising campaign

homepage logoAll the pundits tell us that people today want to be cultural participants, not passive consumers. Have we got an opportunity for you. Possible Futures and The Dragon Foundation have issued a combined challenge grant of $20,000. You can share in ArtsATL’s future by giving us a donation to match this grant. 

We’re proud of this year’s accomplishments. Among them: “30 Under 30,” our series on Atlanta’s rising talent brought attention to artists and performers of all stripes, expanded coverage of the local literary scene and popular music and a Facebook page that serves as a community bulletin board and a site for photo galleries and special promotions. (We give away a lot of movie tickets, so check it out.)

We’ve got something new for you practically every day. For free. Well, not exactly for free. Running a web site, paying writers and editors costs money. While ad revenue and foundation support have covered a substantial portion of the budget, we still look to you, dear reader, to help us defray expenses and enable us to bring you the reviews, interviews, news and stories you come to us to read. If you participate in this campaign, you will double the impact of your gift. Just click on this link for options.

“The importance of[ArtsATL] to the Atlanta arts community cannot be overstated. ArtsATL not only keeps audience members engaged in the vibrant Atlanta arts community, but the arts criticism serves the important role of keeping our arts organizations accountable, fresh and innovative.” Leslie Taylor, executive director, Emory College Center for Creativity & Arts.

As a token of appreciation for each donation, no matter the size, we will share the names of contributors on our social media outlets. Be sure to check our Facebook page and Twitter profile for mentions of yourself and your friends. You should be as proud of your commitment to the Atlanta arts community as we are grateful. You can follow the progress of the campaign, and search for donor names, using our official fundraiser hashtag #ArtsMatchATL.
