ArtServe is excited to be one of 75 organizations in southeast Michigan accepted by the Community Foundation of Southeast Michigan to participate in the Community Foundation Challenge – Arts & Culture. This is an exciting opportunity for ArtServe to connect with loyal and new donors in support of its work to advocate for arts, culture and arts education in Michigan. And, it’s a way to leverage funding from the Community Foundation to support ArtServe’s efforts in the southeast Michigan region and statewide!
Like many of its non-profit partners, this year has presented financial challenges for ArtServe Michigan and the organization has sharpened its priorities where it can have maximum impact – leading statewide advocacy efforts, capacity building for artists and arts/cultural organizations, and strategic communications. ArtServe has also reduced its operational costs by over 25% and restructured its staff team to maximize its resources and build capacity for the future.
