A Message from Executive Director Chris Norton
Membership Drive 2014
* Have you seen a live performance in Livingston County this year?
* Have you been hoping for more artistic opportunities in your community?
And if so, are you a member of Livingston Arts?
Chances are good that an arts program you saw this year has received support from Livingston Arts. Arts and culture bring people into a community and through the doors of local businesses. Studies consistently show that each dollar spent on the arts brings at least five or six dollars back to the community. That’s a heck of a return on your investment!
In these continued times of economic difficulty, and with the vacuum created by the demise of the SUNY Geneseo art program, those who appreciate arts and culture must band together. Nowhere will you find a better example of people working together than in good old-fashioned Livingston County neighborliness.
We have so many volunteers that help us fulfill our mission. Along with their time people also give with their checkbooks. This is where we are placing our focus during our Spring membership drive.
Because we are a non-profit, membership donations are integral to the sustainability of our organization and the arts and cultural we make possible. Not everyone can help monetarily, but if you can- please considering increasing your membership amount. Encourage your friends to become members if they aren’t already. Ask the local businesses you frequent if they are members.
This Spring we have a goal this year of raising $11,000 in total membership dollars. This is an increase of $2,000 over last year. So we need your help!
Livingston Arts has provided support services and collaborated with artists, schools and non-profits in our communities for the last 40 years. We help create programs that promote better quality of life for everyone in Livingston County.
Membership benefits include: ArtSphere, discounts in the Good Deals Gift Shop and classes at Livingston Arts Center and ad space for business members. Not to mention continued art and culture in our communities. You know that when you give to Livingston Arts your contribution will come back to the community – many times over. Thank you for your support!
If you know someone who would like to support our mission, please encourage them to become a member!
