KahBang Arts Sponsorship

This spring, the KahBang Music, Art, and Film Festival produced an offshoot team called KahBang Arts, with the intent of developing a volunteer organization to foster growth in the local creative economy and putting some year-round effort into developing and involving artists in more than just the Festival's annual showcase.

KahBang Arts has incorporated in the state of Maine as a permanent volunteer and charitable organization with a 9-member Board of Directors. I was recently nominated to one of those positions.

Each KahBang Arts member nominated to the Board of Directors must commit to raising an annual contribution through personal sponsorship. This year, the Directors' Sponsorship fund will be directed toward the costs of actualizing our federal 501.c.3 non-profit status. The filing fee alone is $850, and then we add the legal costs and so on - it is not cheap to become a legitimate tax-free entity!

Those of us who have been nominated to help steer KahBang Arts through the next term are very excited about the good we can do and the contributions we can make to the local (and larger) arts community here in Maine. We are looking forward to building the framework of a strong organization focused on discovering, supporting, and promoting emerging and cutting-edge artists and performers, and fostering a network of creative community that will build momentum and grow our ability to impact the arts economy in a positive way.

Please consider a small contribution to sponsor me in the role of Chairperson of the Board of Directors. It will be so very appreciated.

Thank you,
