How to Give and Gain this Holiday Season
Dear West African Cultural Arts Institute supporter, as 2016 draws to a close, we reflect on all that WACAI has accomplished this year and how grateful we feel for all the support from people like you!
As we look forward to expanding our mission to diverse audiences in the new year, we ask that you begin, renew, or increase your support for the West African Cultural Arts!
Thanks to you and other donors and partners, we have completed 20 out of town workshops, 12 Special workshops for kids, 10 master classes at colleges and universities, 19 cultural performances, including at this year's Olympic Trials, taught more than 70 community classes, been awarded $7,800 in community grants, collected over 500 pounds of soccer gear for Guinea, increased our Guinea Land Project capital campaign to over $10,000!
By making a generous donation to WACAI either by mailing us a check or donating via our website you enable us to continue to share the joy and passion of West African Culture through drumming and dance to many who will be deeply transformed by it!
Donors who contribute to WACAI and then make a matching donation to the Oregon Cultural Trust can receive a 100% state credit from the Cultural Trust donation. Click here for more information!
We hope that the year 2016 brings you prosperity, health, and happiness and many unexpected blessings! Happy Holidays to you and yours!
Sincerely, Andrea, Alseny, Papa, and the WACAI Board of Directors
