Dear Friends and Relatives,
“American Indian Arts on the Avenue” fundraiser update…You made a DIFFERENCE!
Thanks to community efforts, we have raised over $8,500 dollars from individual donors in the past month and NACDI has officially secured space for a new All My Relations Gallery on Franklin Avenue! (former Open Arms building)
Due in part to this tremendous show of community support, The McKnight Foundation made an April grant to NACDI of $75,000 to help secure gallery space for All My Relations Arts for the next two years. In addition, The Minneapolis Foundation has contributed an additional $10,000 toward the gallery lease.
Great news, but we can’t stop yet. Our vision of rebuilding a premier American Indian fine arts gallery on Franklin Avenue is in our grasp, and requires your continued support. Our attention now shifts to building the art gallery space.
Please spread the word and encourage your friends, family and colleagues to join you in your donation.
Lets make history and open our new gallery by 2011.
We want you to know your support of any amount is meaningful!! Please go to GiveMN.org or www.nacdi.org <http://www.nacdi.org> and make a contribution today (and ask a friend to help, too).
