The most recent “Giving USA” report states that the arts and culture category is the fastest growing philanthropic cause in the United States. The findings reveal that those surveyed believe that support for the arts provides opportunities for creative thinking, problem solving, and community connection. They report that a vibrant, engaged art community helps recruit and retain employees.
We at the Rome Area Council for the Arts are not at all surprised with these findings. In fact, we feel that they are concrete evidence of our passion to provide the citizens of Rome with opportunities that foster every aspect of the arts in order to enhance the entire community. We see it on the faces of the students at the RACA-sponsored Boys & Girls Club Summer Art Camps as they proudly display their pieces of original pottery. We receive such positive feedback from programs like the Rome Community HeART Project, the student Fire Fly Fling art contest, and the Ellen Axson Wilson Downtown Art Walk.
We know that our programs and events are making a positive impact in the lives of those that participate in them, but it's truly your support that makes it all possible. Our board is committed to increasing our presence in our community, and we invite you to join us in this endeavor. Your contribution will provide the support that makes Rome an exceptional place to live. Join RACA today!
