You might see one of these letters arrive in your mailbox over the next few weeks. Typically we spend the winter writing, designing and sending thousands of letters to our supporters and arts enthusiasts in the community asking them to make an early gift to help us jump-start the United Arts Campaign and build some excitement for the spring. Our staff works incredibly hard to get to know our donors to personalize the act and show them the impact of their gifts.
Something NEW this year: we’re also including case studies (with photos!) from our 2011 grant programs so you can see the immediate and long-lasting effecs of your donation. We promise to do a better job of connecting our donors with the work they support, and I’ll be publishing these “success stories” on this blog throughout the year.
