To promote support for the arts during the Give Local York one-day online giving campaign on May 4th 2018, The Cultural Alliance of York County is providing a $25,000 Arts Match Stretch pool for York-based arts & culture organizations.

The Cultural Alliance Arts Match is available to participating Give Local York 501(c)3 organizations with arts & culture as their primary mission. The Cultural Alliance Arts Match pool will provide a 1:1 match of all qualifying online gifts made through the givelocalyork.org website on May 4, 2018, with a maximum of $2,500 total match available per arts participant.

“We are thrilled to leverage more support for York County arts & culture organizations on the largest one-day give in York County history,” said Mary Anne Winkelman, President of the Cultural Alliance of York County. “The Cultural Alliance Arts Match stretch pool will ensure that arts organizations large and small will have the chance to reach thousands more across our county through the arts.”

“The Cultural Alliance Arts Match is just another example of how giving goes further on May 4,” said Give Local York organizer, Meagan Feeser. “We are so grateful for the support and enthusiasm from the community and from organizations like the Cultural Alliance, who recognize the impact that a Give Day can have for the hardworking nonprofits in York County.”

The deadline for arts organizations to sign up to participate in Give Local York and qualify for the Cultural Alliance Arts Match stretch pool is April 1, 2018. For more information on Give Local York and to register, visit www.givelocalyork.org
