Adopt an Artist Fundraiser

Adopt One of Our Teaching Artists

When you donate to this fundraiser, your donation will be doubled up to $5,000, so this is a great time to donate! This year’s Artists In the Schools Program has felt the Pandemic Challenges big time! In the past, teaching artists would be scheduled to present a lesson to the students in a classroom, show up for 2-3 sessions and be done. Now, each artist must make a video to introduce themselves, a video of how to do their project, and then meet 2-3 times with the kids on Zoom. And more work means greater expense.

Our donors Steve Costa and Kate Levinson came up with a great idea. They decided to “adopt” one of the AIS teaching artists by donating $400 to cover the artist’s fee. They have “adopted” artist Mela Delgado and encourage you to adopt an artist too.

You can also help by providing the funds to purchase supplies, materials, and tools that are used in the program. A donation in any amount helps, and remember, whatever you donate today will be doubled!
