Friends and Artists,
This year we are excited to announce our participation in Southwest Washington’s day of giving, Give More 24! This will be a special opportunity to amplify the work of local nonprofits by tapping into the generosity of the greater community.
Our Board of Directors, staff, and advisors are on the precipice of bringing a state-of-the-art, multi-functioning performing arts venue to our community. However, we can’t achieve this without your support. Please join our campaign and help us reach our goal of $5000! We need you to tell your friends and family members about the vital work we do and ask them to join us in helping to make a difference.
Get ready to give! On September 24, starting at 12AM [midnight], you can visit our site and make a donation to us, as well as any other great participating organizations in Southwest Washington. You will have 24 hours to make your donation, and all giving will end at 12AM [midnight] on September 25.
Questions? To learn more about our mission and participation in GM24, visit our website or contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org. Thank you for taking part in supporting our organization!
Wishing you a happy September,
The SWCA Team
