We HeART CommUNITY Fund Drive

We are excited to be launching the 2021 version of We HeART Community fundraiser for 15 Whatcom County Arts Organizations. This campaign had an amazing turnout in 2020! Thank you so much to everyone who donated to help keep the arts alive in our community. 

What
Whatcom County arts and culture organizations are teaming up to inspire giving to the arts to help recovery from the COVID closure.

We are asking you to make a $50 donation to at least five organizations, totaling $250 in giving to the arts. In return you will receive a piece of exclusive merchandise, commemorating the movement to keep arts alive and thriving in Whatcom County!

Why
Arts organizations are all suffering from physical closure, lost earned income, and lack of resources to continue paying staff and facilities costs.

With your help we are widening our collective pool of supporters, encouraging you to branch out in support of the diverse groups who make up the thriving Whatcom County arts ecosystem. The arts are vital, we are interconnected, and everyone will benefit from a thriving arts and culture sector in our community.
