UPDATE: We are thrilled that we have not only reached our matching gift goal, but have exceeded it! A heartfelt thanks to everyone for your generosity and for helping to make it possible to be #TogetherAgain!
UPDATE: We are so close to meeting our $10K match goal! Thank you!
To clarify: we were recently offered $10K from a generous anonymous donor as part of a matching gift campaign. We have updated the goal to this campaign to more clearly reflect the $10k goal of this GoFundMe, that will then be matched by our donor to total $20K total raised by this initiative. With your support, we're confident we'll reach this important milestone.
To all the amazing friends of 3S who have donated so far: we thank you all for your generosity and for making it possible to be #TogetherAgain!
Five years ago, 3S Artspace opened our doors to the public for full time operations.
What a time we’ve had together! Your support has helped 3S grow into a vital thread in our community’s creative and social fabric. It has truly been an honor (and a wild ride) supporting individual artists, musicians, community groups, and you. Thank you.
3S Artspace believes that by creating a special space for the intersection of art and contemporary issues, we can inspire each other to stay curious, foster empathy, and fuel creativity.
We are going to need spaces like 3S when it’s safe to be together again. We will need each other to help process this experience- and all of the experiences that define us- through the comfort and community that the arts provide.
We don’t know how long 3S will need to remain dark. We have made one difficult decision after another, cancelling or postponing 20+ events and exhibits. This means an estimated 10,000 visitors are now unable to access the arts. We are facing a $75K loss in ticket revenue and concessions alone, and the impact ripples out beyond us to our artists and performers as our ability to support and fund them is suddenly severely limited. Thankfully, most of our planned shows and exhibitions are being rescheduled and we are working hard to be ready to open our doors as soon as it’s safe to do so!
To make this possible, we need your support. We have recently been offered $10K from a generous donor who wishes to remain anonymous as part of a matching gift campaign.
In honor of our 5th birthday, or in honor of what 3S has meant and will mean to you, please consider making a gift today. We need your help to manage this loss of revenue and meet our match.
With your support, we will be #TogetherAgain.
