The Delta Arts Alliance thrives because of its members and during the membership drive lovers of the arts are trying to get more people involved.
The annual membership drive was launched just after July 4 and is an annual fundraising event aimed at supporting the DAA Operating Budget, which supports the day-to-day operations.
"Membership sustains our organization bringing beauty, joy and fellowship to the delta. Our members put feet to our vision to bridge the community. The membership dues keep our lights burning and all the support for our programming," said Bob Wilbanks, DAA board president.
Rori Herbison, executive director, said, "We are grateful to each and every member that has renewed their membership and pledged their support for the Delta Arts Alliance and our work in the community. It’s so very true that every dollar counts."
DAA Membership Chairman Cindy Bassie said, "I joined Delta Arts Alliance because it benefits many school children by putting arts in the schools through the Artists in Residence program. Drama, dance and music are also opportunities children are provided.
"A variety of art exhibits have exposed our community to paintings and sculptures we might not have had the possibility to see otherwise. DAA needs everyone's support through membership and donations to allow us the privilege to continue to provide art exposure to all."
The DAA invites anyone to support at any level.
The levels are individual giving levels at $25, family memberships at $50, $100 Friend levels, $500 Sustaining, $1,000 Benefactor, and $2,500 Benefactor.
A person can pledge their support over the course of a year and receive quarterly invoices.
All gifts are tax deductible.
We accept checks, made payable to the Delta Arts Alliance, or you may pledge online at www.deltaartsalliance.org.
