All About Arts

One of the many ways we’re celebrating Gilmer Arts’ 40th Anniversary is by launching the 2nd Annual All About Arts fund raising campaign.

Thanks to a generous pledge, every dollar raised during the 2019 All About Arts campaign will be matched 2-for-1. That means your 2019 donation can be tripled! $100 = $300.  $250 = $750 and so on.

Between now and October 31, 2019 you have the opportunity to triple your gift toward more exciting milestones, toward expanding arts programs for youth and adults, and toward helping Gilmer Arts provide free and ticketed educational opportunities and sensational events. Contributions and sponsorships help keep event prices reasonable, free programs available, and revenues in balance.

Help us reach our 2019 All About Arts goal of $75,000 to support and expand programs such as: Painting, Drawing, Pottery, Writing, Culinary Arts, Dance, Music, Acting and many other outstanding programs in visual, literary and performing arts.

We are so close to our goal of paying off the mortgage on the Playhouse that we have extended the campaign through October 31. As added incentive one of our Board Members has pledged their home for a week long stay in Santa Fe, New Mexico for the first 3 patron that donate $1,500 or more.

Gilmer Arts and Heritage Association is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization. Your charitable donation to the All About Arts campaign is tax deductible at the base amount of your contribution, not at the resulting matched amount. All About Arts contributions are separate from annual sponsorship or membership payments. All donations directly support the fiscal budget for Gilmer Arts and the Gilmer Arts Playhouse. For donors age 70.5 and up, a Direct Distribution from your IRA is non-taxable income and counts toward your required annual distribution. Contact your financial advisor for details.
