Dear Friends of the FIA:
The extreme Michigan weather has taken a toll on the FIA’s exterior lighting fixtures which not only light the way in and out of the building, but also impact our safety, welcomes visitors, and enhances the FIA’s impressive façade.
Replacing the lights will require removal of the sidewalks resulting in a major capital expense. It is an opportune time to complete the project while all programing, events, and rentals have been canceled due to the pandemic.
To date more than half of the project has been funded leaving $80,000 yet to raise. The Michigan Council of Arts and Cultural Affairs has approved a grant to help incentivize the project and Security Credit Union has made a lead gift.
Because of the immediate need and grant incentive, the FIA is asking our community to help raise the funds. Please make your gift by clicking the "Donate" button to the right.
Your support of this important infrastructure project - at any giving level - is an investment that will continue to light the way for many years.
