Your story is The Art League story. We need your support on 4/17 during Spring2ACTion in order for The Art League story to continue!
The Art League has brought art into the community since 1954 by creating a supportive environment where thousands of people can discover, develop, and contribute their creative talents. While some started as new students in our school and others came to The Art League as experienced professional artists, everyone shares a uniting story. They came in search of a place to learn, create, and experience… and they found so much more.
Wednesday, April 17 is Spring2ACTion – the 24-hour giving event throughout the city of Alexandria – and we need your support in order for The Art League story to continue!
Last year, Spring2ACTion rose $320,000 in one day, benefiting 72 nonprofit organizations. The Art League received an amazing $32,416 from 610 donors during Spring2ACTion 2012, coming in first place for the most unique donors and second place for the most dollars! And, we won an additional $9,300 in grant money and prizes – providing much needed funds for our Madison Annex Build-out. We’re pushing for first all around this year – aiming to raise $40,000 from 800 donors – and you’re the one who can make it happen.
Nearly 100 non-profits are participating this year, so the competition is fierce to win up to $30,000 in additional grants and prizes. Your donation on April 17, no matter how big or small, will make an enormous impact! The organization with the most donors wins a $5,000 grant, so even a $10 donation will go a long way.
We’re fortunate to have several generous matching sponsors throughout the day. The Mason Hirst Foundation is providing a $500 matching gift, and ardent supporter Terry Butler is providing a $500 matching gift for the 7:00-8:00 am hour. Combined with the special “power hour” giving times, your donation will effectively be double or even tripled on April 17.

The Art League will be donating 5% of the amount raised during Spring2ACTion to The Boston Foundation so they can direct the funds to those in need in their community.
