Your Support Makes ART Happen
Your support of the Community Arts Partnership's annual fund makes our work of strengthening the arts throughout Tompkins County possible!
We are so grateful for your new and continued support of the Community Arts Partnership during this difficult time. We understand that we have probably all taken a financial hit and you are worried about the health and safety of your families. We too are feeling these burdens. All we can say is that if you have the resources, we need your support in 2020 more than ever as we will experience shortfalls in government and private funding.

What is the Advocates Circle?
The Community Arts Partnership has a proud history of administering quality programing and the time is right for this organization to do more. There are currently new opportunities, partnerships and collaborations being developed - and that's why we created the Advocates Circle.
Becoming a member of the Advocates Circle requires a pledge of (a minimum of) $300 a year for three years. So far, about 30 of our friends and neighbors stepped forward to make such a pledge!
We invite you to become part of the Circle, thereby providing CAP with the resources needed to take on these important additional responsibilities:
Working with local, state and national representatives to advocate effectively for Tompkins County's cultural institutions and opportunities.
Bring stakeholders together to define areas of mutual interest and develop clear messages and methods to advance those interests with a unified voice.
Enrich local arts and cultural programs and projects through research and the development of sources of significant support from outside of Tompkins County.
Benefits Provided Advocacy Members Include:
Invitation to CAP's annual celebration.
Kickoff "first dibs" reception for our annual CAP-a-Palooza Art Sale Extraordinaire.
Monthly e-mail updates and news from CAP Director Megan Barber.
