|As we close our fiscal year, ACNV is proud to celebrate many successes and milestones in education, community enrichment, and enhancing public spaces. We could not have done this without you! Each July-June, your gifts to our Annual Fund provide our community with ongoing services and programs that foster a thriving and creative culture for everyone in Napa County. (Check out highlights below to see how your gifts make a difference.) Will join us in this mission?
Last year, over a hundred community members joined and exceeded our 2015 goal by raising almost $23,000! This year we have set a goal to grow in reach and impact and have currently raised $17,300 towards our 2016 Annual Fund goal of $30,000 by June 30th.Donate now to help toward the $12,700 needed by June 30 to reach this goal – make an investment in our community and the arts!
A Challenge! Three local families have set a $2,000 Matching Challenge to help us toward this goal. Thanks to Jeff & Elaine Seifert, Council Member Mark Joseph & Family, and Lagniappe Peak Vineyards every dollar contributed will be matched, up to the first $2,000 received by June 30 – That means the impact of your gift will be doubled!
With the generous support of our community, we have brought many partners together to accomplish these key successes and groundbreaking initiatives:
- By convening a diverse group, the ACNV Education Alliance is proud to have stewarded a public-private partnership that will give every student within the NVUSD, from pre-school through high school, access to quality and culturally relevant music, visual arts, dance, theater and media experiences! This 5-year Arts Education Master Plan received unanimous approval of the NVUSD Board of Education on June 2.
- Napa Valley Arts in April 2016, the annual celebration of arts throughout our community, unified over 80 independently presented events and featured nearly 450 visual, performing, and media artists. Together these activities served thousands of residents and visitors, over half of them free of charge.
- We are excited to partner again on the fifth Napa ARTwalk installation in 2017 and many other new projects in development throughout the Valley. Public art promotes an understanding and enjoyment of public spaces, bringing the power of creative expression to our most central and open places.
Arts Council Napa Valley is committed to continuing to advocate for exceptional experiences in the Napa Valley.
