A HUGE Thank You!

We at the Newark Arts Alliance are so appreciative of the love the community has given us over the years. These amazing individuals, businesses, and organizations have supported our vision of a strong arts community with monetary donations and event sponsor fees. With these funds we’ve been able to provide access to the arts to all.

We would also like to thank our corporate and business sponsors who support specific events and the Newark Arts Alliance overall. They are: Adobe Express, Compass at the Grove, Bassett, Dawson & Foy, Inc., The Newark Post, Mallard Financial Partners, Inc., Allison Stine Team of Northrop Realty and Jerry’s Artarama of Delaware.

Gingerbread Extravaganza Sponsors

We finished the fundraiser “Do More 24” event where donations were requested during a 24 hr. period with matching funds available on March 3-4, 2022. We received a total of 77 donations from 58 donors for a total of $26,610. (this includes a $20,000 donation used as an internal match from a private donor) We won $600 worth of bonus prizes for having 25 donations in the first hour and a donation at 3am! We received matching funds from the Delaware Division of the Arts in the amount of $23,100. We were the top performing arts organization (out of 51) in the “small non-profit” category of organizations with $500,000 annual budget or less. We earn far less at around $110,000 annually, so we were competing with some much larger organzations than ourselves. A big THANKS to everyone who donated. You made it happen!

Donor Levels Graphic - The Kahlo Club - Newark Arts Alliance

“The Kahlo Club”

New last Fall, we introduced “The Kahlo Club“, which includes all “recurring donors”. We would like to encourage everyone to commit to a monthly donation of $10 or more to contribute to the NAA’s monthly expenses. This will help us focus on our programs more instead of fundraising. Help us have a strong foundation by making a recurring donation. This option is offered on our donation page. It is also possible to set up a recurring payment through your bank. We get 100% of the donation using that method, as there’s no fees. Contributions are always 100% tax-deductible. We will send you a tax receipt at the end of each year unless you need it sooner.
