By allocating my donation to the 2021 Art$W Challenge Grant, I certify that my new or increased gift donated is for the purpose of the 2021 Art$W Challenge
Support from Westchester County Executive and Board of Legislators enable ArtsWestchester to match new or increased donations to Bethany Arts Community of up to $7,500, raised through December 31.
Affordable access to the arts and the artists whose work inspires, comforts, and sometimes even challenges us is more important than ever.
This past year, as we all navigated the pandemic, we focused our energy at Bethany Arts Community on delivering meaningful programs for kids, adults, and professional artists virtually and safely in person. We made a commitment to do all that was in our power to keep our doors open and to continue to support you – our artist, student, and viewing community.
We modified residency programs – but carried on. We transitioned talks and performances to online experiences – but carried on. We opened our galleries with new safety protocols in place – but carried on. We introduced carefully designed after school and summer youth programs – and carried on. We provided a safe, creative space for bubble residencies – and carried on.
Throughout the year, as in each year since our inception, we remained committed to providing scholarships to our classes and camps, free access to our galleries, and to many programs. This past year, we offered free access to all events.
We cannot do this work without your support. While we have been honored to receive funding from ArtsWestchester, The National Endowment for the Arts, and the New York State Council on the Arts, donations from you – our community – are critical to our work. Your donation also tells us you value what we are doing.
By acting now you will double your impact!
Bethany Arts Community has been offered a challenge by ArtsWestchester.
For every NEW (or increased) donation to Bethany Arts Community, ArtsWestchester, with the generous support of the Westchester County Executive and Board of Legislators, will match those contributions 1:1 for the first $7,500 raised, effectively doubling your gift. If you’ve never given to Bethany before, if you have not given in a few years, or if you are able to increase your contribution, now is the moment.
Please join Bethany Arts Community and help us continue our work.
Tax deductible contributions may be made online at www.bethanyarts.org/support or by check made payable to: Bethany Arts Community. In addition, the Donor Certification Form must be completed and returned to Bethany by the donor to be eligible for the ArtsW Challenge match. Checks and donor forms can be mailed to Bethany Arts Community, 40 Somerstown Road, Ossining, New York 10562 or scanned and e-mailed to email@example.com. Or, stop by, drop it off, and let us know what you love most about Bethany and want to see more of.
As always, thank you for your support of Bethany Arts Community and stay safe, well and connected!
