Starkville has a thriving arts and culture community… theatre, symphony, film, art education programs and exhibits, the Cotton District Arts Festival, live music, pianos downtown, Sunday Funday… we could continue this list for quite some time.
But... what if the arts went dark?
35,000 people in Oktibbeha County live above poverty. If only 1 in 35 gave just $10/year, that would provide $10,000 for art and art education programming that could fund:
Give up that nice cup of coffee just once (maybe twice) in November and donate to the arts. If you can't donate, then please volunteer. Without volunteers, events like Art in the Park and CDAF would immediately cease. Every act of generosity counts, and each means even more when we give together. If you want to help in other ways, visit this page to see where you can lend a hand.
Help create a community where people want to live, stay, and build their lives. Donate to SAAC for #GivingTuesday. If not SAAC, then consider one of the several arts organizations in Starkville.
It’ll come back to you, we promise.
