Give to The Arts!
To the editor:
We represent members of the board and friends of The Grand Center for Arts and Culture, a community arts center in downtown New Ulm. It has been four years this December since we completed the renovation of our building and had a public grand opening. We are now looking to the future and have begun an endowment campaign, which will eventually allow us to use the investment interest to fund building and business expenses, such as utilities, maintenance of all of our systems, taxes, insurance, etc., and truly become sustainable. We have a generous donor who will be matching all contributions to the endowment up to $500,000. We are currently at about $100,000 towards that goal.
We thank all of the community members who have supported The Grand through volunteering, attending musical events, gallery shows or art classes and the many talented artists who create the music and art that we are able to showcase.
If you are looking for a good cause for a year-end gift, we would greatly appreciate your membership support or support for our endowment campaign. Individual artists and musicians benefit through your support, as do children and adults who participate and appreciate the arts and make our quality of life even better.
If interested you can call the Grand at 507-359-9222 or visit us at 210 N. Minnesota St. (P.O. Box 872, New Ulm, MN 56073).
