I’m writing today to share some good news about Jozart Center for the Arts in California, Pennsylvania. The only arts center in the upper Mon Valley region, Jozart was recently awarded 501(c)(3) status by the IRS. Not only does this development allow the Center’s dedicated volunteers to continue to offer top notch arts programming to area residents of all ages, it also means that all contributions to the Center are now fully tax-deductible.
In line with this exciting news, the Center is holding our first annual end of the year fund drive with a two-fold purpose. First, we are seeking contributions to help offset the Center’s day to day operational expenses. Second, we are seeking donations to help defray the cost of installing a chairlift at the Center facility, a move that would enable us to better assist our physically challenged and/or elderly patrons.
What sort of events and programs do your contributions to Jozart Center for the Arts support? Youth oriented events, including concerts, dances and an alcohol free weekly open stage night. Arts workshops and musical/theatrical performances for all ages. Gallery exhibits by talented local artists. Fitness and dance classes. Finally, Jozart is YOUR arts center, and your donations enable us to develop programs that appeal to YOU. We are always open to your suggestions for events, workshops and classes!
Supporters making a contribution of $500 or more will be considered “Founding Members” of Jozart. This will entitle you to an array of benefits, including discounts on events and on items from our café, as well as having your name or your business name/information included on our promotional materials, web site, and facility itself. Supporters making a contribution of $100-500 will be considered “Patron Members”, and will be entitled to discounts on events and items from our café and will have their name or business name listed on our web site and facility. Supporters making a contribution of $20-$100 will be entitled to discounts on events and items from our café as well as have their name or business name listed on our web site.
Whatever level of support you can offer Jozart, know that your fully tax deductible donations will assist us in achieving our stated mission to preserve and promote the cultural arts in the Mon Valley region of Pennsylvania. I’m providing you with a self addressed envelope should you wish to make a contribution during our first annual year end fund drive. We also are able to accept donations via PayPal at firstname.lastname@example.org.
