Let's Get it Done!

The Spirituals Project


Dear Friends,

GREAT NEWS! In order to maximize your contributions, we're extending our Fall 2013 donor campaign. Help us meet our goal to raise $50,000 in new revenue by December 1st.

Our gratitude and thanks to those of you who have already contributed to the campaign. If you haven't made your donation yet, we hope you'll take a moment today to Give to the Future. Consider becoming a member of the Arthur Jones Balm in Gilead Society with a donation of $500 or more, or know that your gift of any amount will help us continue to share the beauty and the wisdom of the spirituals with future generations.

The best option is to donate securely online through ColoradoGives.org. You can also send a check or money order to the mailing address at the bottom of this message.

Here is what your support during this campaign will mean for our continued work:

* We can continue to schedule local programming, including our popular concert events.
* We can introduce more fully innovative elements that creatively integrate aspects of
Research, Education, Activism and Performance into all aspects of our programming.
* We can move forward to establish the long-held dream of a National Center for Research
and Performance of the Spirituals.
* We can plan to schedule more national gatherings like the REAP National Conference
on the Spirituals on a biennial basis (every other year).

To grow our work in these new ways, we'll need to:

* Recruit the highest quality speakers and performers
* Purchase necessary educational and musical supplies
* Provide affordable programs for teachers, children, community workers and lay people
* Provide adequate staffing to organize and implement our plans

If you have any questions, please don't hesitate to call the office of The Spirituals Project at 303-871-7993. We are so grateful for your ongoing support.
