Americans for the Arts: Are you up for a challenge?

afta-logoOne of the Americans for the Arts board members has challenged AFTA with an offer to donate $5,000 if they can match that amount with contributions from their members in a short period of time. They need our help to get this matching gift!

Please consider making a contribution now – they only have until December 21st to raise $5,000.

With the 2014 mid-term elections right around the corner, Americans for the Arts needs your help to strengthen their voice for the arts. The continued threat of a 49 percent cut to the National Endowment for the Arts’ budget serves as an alarming example of how important it is that we help elect a pro-arts Congress. Together, we have worked together to:

  • Stand up for every child’s right to a comprehensive, high quality arts education
  • Promote public policies that provide individuals and families affordable access to all forms of the arts
  • Rally national support against attacks to the arts
  • Build political influence to ensure bipartisan support for the arts

Follow Americans for the Arts on Facebook.

Also, keep in mind, that the national effort to preserve arts funding begins at the local level. Please join Oklahomans for the Arts today!
