Dear friends,

It’s been a really crummy year for us all.  But, as 2020 draws to a close, we find ourselves grateful for our community and for hope on the horizon.

We know that many of you look forward to this time of year to give your annual gift to ArtsWest.  Normally, we’d have a thrilling show and passionate speeches onstage, with red buckets and giving stations in the gallery. 

This year, since we can’t do any of that – we’ve written you a poem instead.


[In a proclamatory-type voice.  Think “Dickensian town crier.”]
A gift for you, a gift for we,
A gift that shines for all to see.
Without your gift, what would there be?
Perhaps not Krakens drinking tea.
So if your gift is meant to be,
Won’t you click our giving tree?
