The Great Canadian Giving Challenge!

What would we do with $10,000?

The Gabriola Arts Council has the opportunity to win $10,000 through CanadaHelps’ Great Canadian Giving Challenge.

Here’s how it works:

For the entire month of June, every $1 you donate to GAC through www.canadahelps.org or www.givingchallenge.ca will qualify us to win the $10,000! Even a small donation (a minimum of $3) will qualify for an entry, and the more you give, the more chances for us to win!

It’s easy to donate! Just go to the GAC page at CanadaHelps’ Great Canadian Giving Challenge. You can designate how you would like your donation to be used, or make a contribution to the general pot.

So, what would we do with $10,000?

Besides enhancing our arts and culture programming on Gabriola (Isle of the Arts Festival  •  Gabriola Theatre Festival  •  Thanksgiving Studio Tour  •  Healing Power of Art Program  •  Youth Engagement Program), we would use the money to continue our WI Hall Upgrade and Renovation project. Things are well underway — the office and mini-kitchen are almost complete, and the electrical system has been upgraded. Next up is to repair the water-damaged building foundation, replace the wheelchair ramp, upgrade to a wheelchair-accessible washroom, upgrade the water system, and add a performance-ready sound and light system. We’ve been successful at raising funds through our Chair Affair event, and through generous private, public and corporate donations. But it’s a big job with a big budget — even with the incredible volunteer efforts.

Donate today! And THANK YOU for supporting the Gabriola Arts Council.

Note: only donations through the CanadaHelps website will add an entry to the draw.

GAC is a Registered Charitable Organization — you will receive a tax receipt for your donation.
