Dear HCA supporters and friends,
In times of uncertainty, artists offer clarity.
In times of anxiety, artists see innovation.
In times of struggle, artists create opportunity.
In times of need, YOU make the difference.
Even though our studio and performance spaces are temporarily closed, we hope you are still creating and thriving. Please know the HCA faculty and staff is working hard to offer the same exceptional classes you have come to know and trust - in new ways, through new technology.
The HCA remains fiscally strong but faces a $40,000 budget shortfall from the inability to offer live events, performances, and classes due to the Covid-19 pandemic. The livelihood of our staff and community of artist-instructors depend on the HCA. We invite you to consider a gift of support. Please be as generous as feels comfortable during this time. ALL gifts matter and are appreciated!
Your gift can have twice the impact! We already have an extremely generous pledge of $10,000 from Edward and Lisa McFarland who will match dollar for dollar up to $10,000. That means your $100 donation is a $200 donation towards the center.We recognize that many of you have been hit hard financially by the crisis or have a level of uncertainty about the future. Please be assured that we are here for you and that we offer need-based scholarships for students so that no person is denied an arts education.
Kelly Grill & Kris Waldman
