Today The Creative Oasis got a new sign. We've had constant trouble with them, most of our signs have been pulled down or destroyed by roving drunks late at night..just like we've had our window/door glass smashed. I hope this one will last!
This new sign was paid for by a fundraising campaign we started earlier in the year. It's The Creative Oasis's first major fundraising drive. Times being what they are, we needed the support of our former students and members as well as the revenues brought in by classes. So far we've brought in about $1500, I had set our goal at $60,000, so we're not very far along, but we've had several very generous donations and many more smaller ones. $60,000 would nearly double our budget and allow us to make major improvements as well as hire someone to be our first paid employee, that's right..we're ALL volunteers.
So for everyone who has donated, Thank you! For everyone who would like to help us reach our goal, you can donate by going to PayPal and sending your donation to firstname.lastname@example.org. Please include your mailing address so we can send you a receipt and a thank you letter that includes our federal EIN number so you can take your tax deduction!
You may also donate by phone, simply call us, 814 237 1982 and a friendly volunteer will take your credit card information.
You can send us a check: The Creative Oasis 133 E Beaver Ave State College, PA 16801
Thanks everyone, I hate to beg while blogging, but if I don't ask, I won't receive. This is a great studio and fantastic community resource. Worth it. Every dollar will make a real difference.
