Annual Fund Drive 2010
Dear Friend of Baltimore Art & Music Project:
December 2010 will mark our 16th anniversary! As many nonprofits have experienced, it has been a challenging year financially for BaltimoreAMP. More than half our operating budget was cut for FY10, but we will not give up! Our mission and programming continues to provide “the arts” as an all-inclusive means for individuals to express themselves and for communities to be strengthened and revitalized.
During these difficult times we are truly in the business of creating moments, moments of creative release that bring imagination, inspiration and hope through art and music. There is a universal response to the anticipation of an event; the individual must feel good about who they are and where they live. The arts become that healing power that fosters creative talent, raises social consciousness, promotes civic responsibility, community service and pride.
Your support continues to make all the difference in being able to provide cultural outreach to communities and individuals who traditionally feel excluded from the arts sector.
BaltimoreAMP 2010 Highlights:
