Artpace needs to completely replace our aging air conditioning systems. We are very thankful to our family of supporters who together have donated over $10,000 toward a $30,000 matching gift set up by our Board Chair Emeritus Jeanne Klein. But our challenge to reach this match is far from over! Right now, our goal is to exceed the match and raise the first $100,000 it will take to replace our systems. We are calling on you to help by donating to this fund and forwarding this to your circle of friends. You can help keep Artpace cool for many years to come so that we can continue to Make Art Happen. Any gift you give today, whether it's $50, $500, or $5,000, will go directly to the Artpace 2018 Air Conditioner Fund.
Our Need: Artpace’s 24-year-old air conditioning system was originally given a 15-year lifespan. Even with our hard-working staff systematically maintaining the system, it regularly breaks down. We experience moments without cool air in the summer or heat in the winter sometimes for periods of days. In fact, some of our system’s parts are no longer even manufactured, making eBay our only source for replacements. At this point, our only option is to replace our air conditioning system.
Our Goal: The total cost to completely replace Artpace’s system is $270,000. To achieve this goal, Artpace is currently seeking multiple funding sources, but these efforts will not be enough. If everyone that visits Artpace or attends one of our programs in a year were to give $5, our fundraiser would be over today, which is why we are asking you for support. Please help us Keep Artpace Cool for generations to come!
