Community Foundation Helped Make Family Art Days Free at San Juan Art Museum
By the Board of Trustees of the San Juan Islands Museum of Art
The San Juan Islands Museum of Art would like to thank the staff, volunteers, members, and donors of the San Juan Island Community Foundation for all their support and good works from March 2020 to now.
All of us suffered in some way during the pandemic and the teams at the community foundation jumped into action to help our community. What would the quality of life on the island look like when this crisis passed?
The answer to that question was an important consideration in their deliberations. They knew well that the arts educate, entertain, enliven, and engage our residents, students, and artists. The community foundation supported and valued the nonprofits in the arts and their contributions. Thank you, San Juan Island Community Foundation.
Thank you especially, for your generosity in remembering the art museum in your giving. The community foundation and the Women’s Fund made the Family Art Days’ Take-home Survival Packs possible for all for free.
While families and children were home-bound the Family Art Days’ packs contained interesting and clever projects, as well as instructions and materials for family fun and learning.
The benefactors give from the heart, not for acclaim and, often, we in the community do not know whom to thank for projects and opportunities. On behalf of the art museum and all the families who benefited in these last months, thank you San Juan Island Community Foundation.
