Friends of The Exchange
We count on your support to keep The Exchange humming!
In the time since our organization began, in 2010, we have seen a lot of changes -- and we have reached a lot of people: The Moose Exchange had more than 40,000 visitors in four years; the Destination Blues Music Festival had more than 15,000 attendees, and the "Backstage Pass to the Blues" program has reached more than 5000 students in eight schools in four counties in four years; ArtFest attracts more than 2500 people annually; the Exchange Gallery has shown work by well more than 500 artists; the Art Cart reaches 8000 people every year.
Your Student membership at $15 can pay for an Art Cart visit to a camp.
Your Individual membership at $25 can pay for on-line promotion of an Exchange event.
Your Family membership at $50 can pay for a non-profit's booth at ArtFest.
Your Sustainer membership at $100 can pay for a Gallery reception's entertainment.
Your Patron membership at $250 can pay for a Destination Blues Listening Room performer.
Your Maestro membership at $1000 can pay for a "Backstage Pass to the Blues" presentation.

Keeping everything going here requires money -- although not really a lot of it: The Exchange has a total budget of about $125,000 a year, which includes one full-time employee and three part-timers; keeping the lights and heat on in the Gallery; all of the musicians at our various events; the Art Cart; ArtFest; and all of the other activities that we participate in.
Nonetheless, our activities take in much less operating income than we spend: We provide the Art Cart for free at more than 50 venues, for example. So we write a lot of grant applications AND we ask YOU for your support: When you become a Friend of The Exchange today, 100% of your contribution goes to keeping our programs going.
THANK YOU FOR YOUR SUPPORT.
