Your contribution + our challenge grant = thriving community

You care about your community and you’re committed to the arts. You wouldn’t even be reading this if you felt otherwise. What may be less obvious is the essential link between a thriving community and a flourishing arts environment, and our shared role in strengthening that connection.

Our community depends on the continued development of our future leaders to secure its continued growth. The art/community relationship goes far beyond visually appealing public art installations; it is a crucial part of the social contract that we must embrace and support.

Research confirms what you already intuitively know – individuals who are exposed to arts education show improvement in overall academic outcomes and graduation rates. This acquisition of critical thinking skills and cognitive ability serve our community members throughout their lives. Individuals engaged in the arts tend to be more successful in work and are often more engaged in civic activities.

This incredible potential for community uplift inspires us to reach out to those who might otherwise never get this opportunity, and that’s exactly what we’re doing. During the first year of our award-winning outreach programs, the Arts Students League of Denver has successfully aligned with organizations across the metro area to serve almost 500 disadvantaged and underserved individuals that otherwise had no other access to arts education. And it doesn’t end there! ASLD engages with more than 30,000 individuals per year through our regular course programming and through free events like our Demo & Dialogue series, art exhibits and our very popular Summer Art Market.

However, in a community of 2.9 million residents, we are barely scratching the surface. ASLD has the talent and expertise needed to create and expand these meaningful, community-based art experiences, but the resources required are simply beyond our means. This is why we need you - valued members of the art community to make these plans come to life.

If you take action now, your gift will be twice as meaningful. We’ve secured a challenge grant of $35,000 from one of our generous sponsors, challenging our supporters to raise an additional $35,000 and thus effectively doubling your thoughtful donation.

Your relationship with the arts and your commitment to community are exemplified by your association with ASLD. Our outreach efforts elevate this societal and cultural connection to the tangible benefit of all involved. Your support will make this happen.

With our sincerest thanks,

Rachel Basye
Executive Director
