Dear ArtReach Community Members,
As you know, ArtReach is an organization that supports community-based arts initiatives that engage youth from underserved populations. Our programs are open to young people 13-29 who face barriers to accessing meaningful, high-quality arts opportunities in the City of Toronto. In every way we can, we support youth by providing them with a platform for building, delivering, and engaging in community arts projects.
Since its inception in 2006, ArtReach has provided over $3.5 million dollars in project funding to nearly 350 to youth artists and youth-lead organizations across the City of Toronto. These funded projects have allowed 2,500 youth leaders to deliver programming to 12,000 participants, and host events that have welcomed 285,000 community members. We've also been able to support over 4,000 youth through our capacity-building workshops, training sessions, and one-on-one mentorship opportunities.
In order for us to continue delivering this high-impact, high-quality work, ArtReach needs your help: we are currently working to raise the final $2020 of our fundraising goal before 2020. 2019 has been a difficult year for those in the arts and culture sector. With the availability of public funding drastically reduced, organizations like ours are facing severe challenges. We cannot continue to support the development of young artists and youth-lead organizations without donations from valuable ArtReach community members like you.
We ask you now to make a donation in support of ArtReach. We welcome contributions of any amount- every dollar helps. All gifts over $10 will be eligible to receive a tax receipt.
Making a donation is easy:
head to artreach.org/donate to give now!
Thank you for your continued support and your belief in the positive impact of our work,
Allie Harvey ArtReach Program Manager
