Donor Thanksgiving

This January, we want to take the time to showcase all of you who help us bring black art to the communities in our city that need it, and share a bit about what your donations help us achieve. Art Sanctuary is thankful for every single penny from our donors, and hope our programming continues to make them proud of their investments. 

(DEC 2015—JAN 2017)
This generous donation from one of our most ardent foundational supporters has made it possible for us to go into middle school classrooms and teach the Civil Rights Movement through the Arts. We are incredibly grateful to them!!
The William Penn Foundation
These generous donations from our pie crowd are too sweet to pass up on acknowledging!! We can't express our gratefulness for their support, which enables us to keep the lights on and work with students in out-of-school programs.

The Lenfest Foundation
Independence Blue Cross
Dickerson Estate Fund of The Philadelphia Foundation
An Anonymous Fund of The Philadelphia Foundation
While you may not immediately think of cranberry sauce, your Thanksgiving turkey wouldn't be the same without it. Our "Cranberry" donors may not get the flashiest of introductions, but they support the Celebration of Black Arts Festival and exhibition program in our gallery, without which Art Sanctuary wouldn't be Art Sanctuary. 
An Anonymous Fund of The Philadelphia Foundation
The Daniel W. Dietrich II Trust Inc. Fund
The Philadelphia Foundation
Just as stuffing fills your yearning for a savory starch that baked macaroni and cheese leaves, the gifts from these generous donors allow Art Sanctuary to give books to every student in our middle school program, introduce toddlers to African and African-American storytellers, and help us tell our story in our community.

As any cook worth their weight in salt (or sugar) will tell you, a Thanksgiving meal is nearly worthless without a side of collard greens. They actually encourage you to keep your energy up for the second NFL game, third plate, and desserts! All of our "Collard Greens" donors encourage us to keep our work going—from their presence in our gallery and other events to their consistent social media and financial support, we could not do our work without them. Thank You Everyday!!
