CATS: Community Arts Trusts
Donations & Contributions
Individual contributions and donations are the single most important source of funding for the Community Arts Advocates programs and services. Small grass roots nonprofits receive only limited grant support. These grants also often require matching funds. Individual donations also demonstrates community support that is a very important factor in successful grant applications.
Donations can be directed to the general operating support of Community Arts Advocates or individual programs and services on the form below.
Community Arts Advocates serves many under represented Boston area artists and cultural organizations.
The Mosaic Cultural Education Programs supports and markets artists and community cultural organizations who have little or no visibility beyond their own communities. We provide these artists and groups with web sites, program flyers, post cards, and event flyers. The goals of CAA Mosaic Cultural Education Programs is to enrich the community about these artists and cultural traditions while improving the earned income of the artists and cultural organizations in a difficult financial climate.
Summer Arts Internships and Nonprofit Management Services -- Community Arts Advocates provides and coordinates summer interns for Roslindale Open Studios, Spontaneous Celebrations, Eliot School of Fine Arts, Haitian Artists Assembly and other Jamaica Plain and Boston cultural organizations. CAA also provides production, marketing and program book fundraising support for Spontaneous Celebrations, Friends of Jamaica Pond, Artisans' World Arts and Craft Gallery and individual artists.
The Street Arts and Buskers Advocates program serves street artists locally, nationally and internationally. Many street artists are new immigrants, low-income, living in shelters, and have physical and mental health challenges. Street Arts and Buskers Advocates successfully stopped the MBTA from essentially banning subway performances in 2007 and 2003 plus filed a Federal Civil Rights law suit which repealed archaic and repressive laws in Boston in 2004. Street Arts and Buskers Advocates setup a fund and produced benefit events for the New Orleans folk, Creole and street artists devastated by hurricanes. Street Arts and Buskers Advocates also provides a comprehensive web site with legal guide, model ordinances, historical references, festival listings and an artists directory. Community Arts Advocates is the only nonprofit organization which comprehensively supports street artists and street cultural traditions in the country.
CATS Community Arts Trusts is a fund that supports individual artists and cultural associations using Community Arts Advocates' Nonprofit Management and Fiscal Agency Services including Roslindale Arts Alliance, Jorge Arce and Humano Multicultural Program, MusiConnects residency in the Boston Public Schools and many smaller one time events.
Community Arts Advocates requests support for these important community arts programs. Toward these endeavors your support would be most valued.
