Help us meet our fundraising goal for the Winter Campaign.
As winter approaches, we realize that the year is ending soon. For many, this is a period of reflection.
At Taller, we marvel at what we accomplish within the scope of our limited resources. What we have lacked in dollars, we have made up in attitude. We defeat obstacles, bringing Philadelphians together to experience the magic and transformational power of the arts. Taller just concluded producing its Café Under the Stars series, bringing together many talents including Pregones Theater and Pleneros de la 21 from New York City, and from Philadelphia, the Rojas Family, award winning choreographer Merián Soto, and Philadelphia Orchestra musicians, among others. Thousands of people attended, enjoyed, danced and met each other. Already, our after school programs for children and youth are registered to capacity. We led the way to host the National Association of Arts and Culture (NALAC) national conference in Philadelphia, in October, the first time it was held on the East Coast in its over 20-year history. We have launched our annual cycle of art exhibits and book talks. We have also made progress on our long journey for a new 24,000 sq. ft. state-of-the-art $10-million cultural center for which we have raised $6.5 million. We hope you’ll agree that Taller has been a pillar building our community through art for social and economic change since 1974.
There is so much more to be done to build a strong community for our children, youth, and families, as well as to build a strong Latino cultural presence for Greater Philadelphia.
We have set an ambitious campaign fundraising goal of $15,000 to maintain a strong financial position for our programs. You can make a financial contribution to Taller by:
1. Renewing your yearly membership early. Do it today!
2. Considering renewing your membership at a higher level.
3. Even if your membership is up to date, making an additional personal end-of-year contribution today.
4. Visiting Taller’s Julia de Burgos store and shopping ‘til you drop!
Your generosity and commitment mean that Taller enters 2013 with the confidence to blossom, to inspire, and to serve our entire community.
