Once again, we are letting you know via our Little Artshram webpage and Facebook page—-rather than a crowdfunding/sourcing method that your support is needed and will be greatly appreciated!
We’re asking 250 of our community members and friends to contribute $20 each, we would be able to honestly take care of the costs of this 24th annual community event.
Here’s the breakdown of our budget:
Insurance & permits: $1500.00,
Printing, promotion and fundraising mailings: $500.00
Parade-building materials and expenses: $1500.00 (give or take–depending on how much “stuff” we can glean and search out),
Space rental: $700 (To house and host our guest artist, for his four-week stay.)
Parade artist/crew stipends: $2500.00, (For the nine (9) weeks, over 600 hours, of heart-mind-hands-on work of designing and setting up a creative space to invite our community to join us in building it.)
A total of numbers of greenbacks needed: $7,700.00.
So far, we’ve received donations of: $1,250.00.
As of, April 17th we’ve received an additional: $275.00
