As you know, we’re celebrating our 10th Anniversary and have a big goal of raising $100,000 by June 30. That’s how much it will take to keep providing the highest quality arts learning experiences for people with disabilities at every stage of life, from classrooms to community programs, as we transition into our next 10 years.

You can always make a one-time gift to Upstream Arts online or by mail; but here are 3 other fun and meaningful ways to support in the coming months:

Come to a VocalPoint Concert. We can’t wait to share the Upstream Arts story in a brand new medium! Come enjoy gorgeous music, a retrospective exhibit, plus friends old and new. February 27-28, Central Presbyterian Church, St. Paul. Click here to learn more.

Sponsor The Art of We, our 10th Anniversary Celebration and Fundraiser. We’re throwing a big party on May 19 at the American Swedish Institute – and there are many ways to get involved! Click here to learn more or call our office at (612) 331-4584 to discuss options.

Establish a recurring gift. We’re deeply grateful for gifts of all varieties; but being able to count on recurring support allows us to budget and plan in a whole new way. Setting up a recurring gift is easy to do; click here to set up one up.

Your belief and support inspire us every day. Thank you for all that you do!
