Indigo Arts Alliance Founding Support
Indigo Arts Alliance would like to gratefully acknowledge the generous 5-year pledge in the amount of $1,000,000 from an anonymous donor. This pioneering support enables us to begin the catalytic work of our mission. We invite you to join our growing community of donors in realizing the vision of Indigo Arts Alliance!
Inaugural Indigo Donor: Pledge a yearly sustaining gift for five years giving at $10,000 and above. Your donation will be earmarked to help ensure the operations of the organization or/and support the services of our mission.
Community Champion Donor: Gifts of $5,000 or more.
IAA Diaspora Sponsor : Gifts from $500 – $5,000.
There are multiple levels of giving that will support our mission that include the support of residency stipends for artists in residence and mentees, public scholarship workshops and community engagement events as well as the capital and operational costs, equipment and materials. Your generous contribution can also take the form of a gift of stock, a gift by will, or trust. All of these options will be carefully handled by our philanthropy specialist.
Please also remember to ask if your employer has a matching gift program. Thank you for your support.
