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, 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.
