Dear Friends, Art Lovers, and Neighbors!
We hope we hope you and your loved ones are safe and healthy . The current crisis is challenging us all and is hitting non-profit organizations like the Workhouse Arts Foundation especially hard.
We have had to close our doors to art lovers, cease all classes, performances, exhibits, and cancel events. As a result, our revenue has been significantly impacted from the beginning of this closure. Despite this situation, our spirits are high and we remain committed to bringing the arts to the community; although now we will connect you to the arts virtually! (Check out our free online offerings and stay tuned for Virtual Friday Night Cabarets!)
While we remain resilient and look forward to reopening as soon as possible, we need your help and generosity at this time. A contribution of any amount will help support our staff, artists, and high quality art programs. No amount is too small and all donations are greatly appreciated.
All donations made directly to the Workhouse are tax deductible, and, under the new federal CARES Act, your donation has even better tax benefits!
Any contribution you make now will help us continue to provide wonderful art experiences to the community in the future: from performing arts to art education and summer camps; from social dancing to culinary arts; and, of course, the continuation of our joyful community events such as Second Saturdays, Fireworks, Brewfest, and the Workhouse Haunted Trail.
Your donation will also help us share the Workhouse story with you through a visit to our new Lucy Burns Museum, which spans 91 years of prison history, including the important national role that the Workhouse played in the story of women’s voting rights.
If you’ve ever enjoyed our campus, please consider giving now. If you have not yet had the pleasure of visiting us, your donation is welcome and we invite you to join us once we are all past this difficult period.
Though temporarily isolated, the way we’ll get through this is TOGETHER! The arts are powerful! Thank you so much for anything you can give; we truly appreciate your support!
