Based on the overwhelming response for the Million Month March fundraiser, we have decided to extend our efforts to preserve the Belmont Cultural Art’s building for the next few Months (although you may see a fundraiser name change at some point👍🏾).
In all transparency, we have not YET raised the full amount of money for the mortgage on the building, but we have been GREATLY encouraged by sponsors, partners, businesses, and donors to keep going. Thank you for your continued support!
KEEP sharing, KEEP showing up to events, and KEEP the faith!
Because, “Working together, we can make a difference!”
