With the ongoing closure of our theaters, and the unpredictability of a re-opening in the near future, ArtsEmerson is undertaking a special fundraising initiative. This will allow us to successfully navigate through change and enable us to reimagine and land solidly in the next normal.
We are launching the Advance ArtsEmerson Bridge Fund . This will address the need for unrestricted, general operating funds to stabilize our current operations. In addition, it will ensure a thoughtful reimagination phase bridging us and landing us in a sustainable future.
The goal of the Bridge Fund is to secure $1,500,000 over the next 3 months to help bridge the gap in operational needs for current and future use. Every gift matters; support from the ArtsEmerson community at all giving levels can make the difference in helping us reach our total Bridge Fund goal.
We remain committed to supporting our artist, providing accessible programming and serving our communities, even while our doors are closed. We believe staying connected is important now and in the future. The seeds we’ve been able to plant over the past several months will flower over the next several years.
Dollars raised will be unrestricted, flexible funding and will assist in the continued support of our artists, the ongoing development of digital strategies designed to engage audiences remotely, and support preparations for our reopening and future programming.
We hope you will consider supporting this initiative. By helping us “bridge” this gap, you can help us continue to deepen our connections and make a difference through art, helping each other to create, inspire, and dream. Make your gift today.
