Mono Arts Council (MAC) is kicking off our first ever major fundraising campaign on #GivingTuesday. Now through June 30th, 2021, we are raising $250,000 to establish key programs, support some of our most beloved programs, and build a strong foundation for the future of the arts in Mono County. Our goal is to chart a new funding course to augment the grants we receive and the revenue from our annual events.
We need your help to ensure everyone has access to the arts in Mono County.
This year, like many other organizations, we have been hit particularly hard. We were proud to cancel our long-standing summer fundraising events for the health and safety of our community. However, those critical measures have taken a financial toll.
The need for the arts in our community continues to grow. Now more than ever, we need the arts. We need the arts to express ourselves, to share our experiences, to bring us together no matter the physical distance between us.
Each year, we provide K-12 arts education programs for 1600 students, arts events for 12,000 adults, and platforms for established and emerging artists. Beyond events, we advocate tirelessly for the arts and work to build collaborations to ensure we have a thriving arts community.
With MAC, every child in Mono County has year-round access to arts education. Without MAC, fewer than 15% of children will have arts as part of their education.
With MAC, adults have access to arts education programs like Art & Wine, access to over 50 artists in our Gallery & Arts Center, and arts events like our 4th of July Festival.
MAC helped develop the Mono County Strategic Arts Plan led by the California Alliance for Arts Education.
MAC also formed Arts Now Mono County; a cohort of volunteer community members to advocate for arts education.
MAC is the Mono County designated, official partner of the State Local Partnership Program of the California Arts Council.
