Dear Friends and Family,

Real Art Ways depends on you. And we need you now.

In September, in years past, we’ve hosted fundraising events—at Real Art Ways. We’ve netted $100,000 each year.

This year we can’t be together in person. But we can be together in spirit. And we believe we can generate $100,000 to support our work.

We won’t be able to do it together in one night. So we’re taking 30 nights—the month of September—to meet our goal.

Thanks to our sponsors, the good news is... we’re nearly halfway there! And the Richard P. Garmany Fund at the Hartford Foundation for Public Giving has agreed to match your contribution dollar for dollar.

You will make it possible for Real Art Ways to survive, and thrive. Please help us meet our goal.

With gratitude,

Will K. Wilkins and The Real Team

Dear Friends and Family,

We are happy to welcome you back. This fall we have new art exhibitions, outdoor concerts and films, virtual cinema, and new online programming.

Real Art Ways is all about people, all about community. And the past six months have shown us how much we need you. We are busy working behind the scenes, creating adaptive programming to keep us all connected and keep us going.

As you return to our physical space, your health and safety is our top priority. To learn about all the steps we have taken to prepare and our new procedures visit our Welcoming You Back page.

Thank you for making everything we do possible!

Will K. Wilkins and the Real Team
