General News: Fundraiser for Orange County Artists

May 15, 2021

Orange County Arts Council Seeks To Raise Funds for Orange County Artists For Hudson Valley Gives May 19, 2021

(GOSHEN, NY) The Orange County Arts Council will participate in Hudson Valley Gives on
Wednesday, May 19, as it seeks donations to help support services and resources vital to Orange
County artists and the interactive arts programs that engage the community.
Hudson Valley Gives was created by the Community Foundation of Orange and Sullivan (CFOS) in
partnership with the Mid-Hudson Valley Chapter of the Association of Fundraising Professionals (AFP).
The purpose of this day of giving is to create a solid focal point of fundraising for their individual
organizations and missions.
Last year, those who contributed to our Hudson Valley Gives fundraiser enabled OCAC to provide a
steady presence for members and offered resources in a great time of need. Youth art classes
reached nearly 400 students. Virtual studio visits engaged over seven hundred new audience
members. OCAC continues to provide free consultations to members with information regarding grants
and resources through Arts Support Consultations, reaching over 100 artists and organizations per
year. In addition to exhibitions featuring the visual arts, OCAC has hosted a Live Music Series
providing thousands of audience members with access to local musicians. They have also provided
programming such as “Artists Conversations with Industry,” which has introduced artists to regional
career opportunities.
OCAC pledges to continue its work and dedicate its services to the arts. To fulfill this endeavor,
Orange County Arts Council needs the public’s help more than ever. Donations are key to Orange
County’s artists fiscal recovery and will go a long way to ensure that its cultural heritage not only
survives, but thrives and continues to flourish.
About OCAC: The Orange County Arts Council is a private, 501(c)(3) organization dedicated to
meeting the growing need for local arts advocacy and serving as a countywide arts resource. A
diverse Board of Directors made up of community leaders, business leaders, arts enthusiasts, and
professional artists oversees the Orange County Arts Council. Many of its programs are designed and
implemented by volunteers serving on our committees.
Orange County Arts Council helps to build a community that celebrates artistic diversity and inspires
creative participation. Their mission is to champion the arts, connect artists with audiences, and foster
the growth of the county’s creative resources. Through these goals they hope to encourage the
creative spirit in every member of our community. For more information about Orange County Arts
Council, how to donate to Hudson Valley Gives, its programming and more, please visit or email [email protected]
