I started ART FOR CHANGE in 2018 as a way to merge my lifelong love for the arts and commitment to philanthropic initiatives. In this year with its unexpected challenges, it has been humbling to see the difference you have helped us make for our artists and partners. I wanted to share with you some highlights from our initiatives over the past year that show what a difference you have helped us make.
At the beginning of the pandemic, we recognized an urgent need to provide access to food for our fellow New Yorkers. Through our two partnerships with City Harvest we have raised funds to provide 50,000 meals—and counting!
Ahead of the historic election this fall we partnered with When We All Vote and have raised over $30,000 so far to support the organization's mission to ensure every eligible voter is registered and ready to vote in every election.
We are so grateful for our ART FOR CHANGE community for allowing us to make a huge impact in 2020. Thank you for your support and we look forward to more in 2021!
