Help us grow with #GivingTuesday 2022!
SAAC has come a long way since our founding in 1997. We've grown from a wholly volunteer-led organization to expand to be able to hire an Executive Director in 2017, establish an internship program, partner with MSU to become an AmeriCorps VISTA site, hire a Program Coordinator, and even move into a NEW BUILDING this year (now located at 122 East Main Street)! Although this growth may seem quick, this was a much-needed expansion that has been in the works for a long time.
We are incredibly thankful and grateful for the opportunity to move into a larger space, although with any major expansion comes the accompanying rise in expenses. If you would like to help support this expansion and aid us in maintaining our programming, please consider donating to our Giving Tuesday campaign here. Funds from this campaign not only help us pay rent and utilities, but also supplies and essentials that aid us in providing programming in this new space starting in 2023 (starting with our Art in Public Places series, pop-up exhibits with local artists, and much more!)
If we aren’t your charity of choice, then please select one of the several other fantastic arts organizations here in Starkville. Feel free to share on social media to let your friends and the community know that you support the arts.
Don't forget that you can also support SAAC and most other local nonprofits all year through Kroger Rewards, Amazon Smile, Facebook Birthday Fundraisers, and the Paypal Giving Fund. For more details, visit the Donate & Help page of our website.
