To Our Urban Arts Academy Friends and Supporters!
Thank you for supporting us during GIVE To THE MAX Day! You may start making donations on November 1, 2016; do not leave it to the last minute.
And this year, your gift can have double the impact: We’re thrilled to announce all new or increased gifts, up to $5,000, will be matched 1:1 by an anonymous donor! Help us turn $5,000 into $10,000 by making your gift to Urban Arts Academy by midnight on #GTMD16.
Be a superhero for us by covering the online processing fee.
Based on feedback from generous donors like you, GiveMN launched a new feature earlier this year which gives you the power to pay the online processing fee associated with your donation!
Whenever you make a donation through GiveMN.org, you’ll be able to cover that fee on behalf of UAA, ensuring 100% of your intended donation goes directly to us. It’s like the online version of putting your own stamp on the envelope you send back with your gift.
Our next Release Day Camps coming up on December 19th, 20th , and 21st, 2016
- Winter- themed art; making a snowman puppet, a snowflake, a lantern for the longest night of the year, paint trees in winter, maybe make a holiday gift to give to someone…
- Dreams for a New Year: think about what you want for your life, and make a poster to dream it into being with collage, drawing, and painting.
