2017 Annual Giving Campaign
Supporting the arts throughout Whatcom County.
What an amazing year it’s been for Allied Arts of Whatcom County below are a few ways we have completed our mission to support and enrich the community through the arts:
- In May, 60 downtown Bellingham businesses exhibited artwork by more than over 2,000 local students during The Children’s Art Walk
- The Arts Reuse Thrift Store received more than 2,000 pounds of donated art, school, and office supply items to be re-purposed into making more art!
- You have helped raise more than $90,000 towards providing quality arts programs in our schools throughout Whatcom County
- The 38th Annual Holiday Festival of the Arts features artwork from more than 100 local artisans selling more than 25,000 items.
We are excited to be in the planning stages for our new Cultural Arts Festival to take place in June 2018! This three day event is in partnership with a number of community organizations and will be featuring the arts, performances and foods that celebrate the diverse cultures in our community.
I ask you to make a donation to the Allied Arts of Whatcom County Annual Appeal today to help reach more youth and more community members in 2018. You understand how art has the power to transform. We can do that with your support.
