Let’s make ART150 Gallery a very special place!
Pro Arts Jersey City is excited to participate for the second year in the annual #HudsonGives 24-hour fundraising event! We surprised ourselves in 2020 when we surpassed our modest goal by raising $2,600 to establish a Relief Fund. COVID19 had just began to cause financial stress on the livelihoods of our members and our participation in #HudsonGives enabled us to provide assistance.
As we slowly emerge from the pandemic, we look forward to presenting exhibitions, events and special programs in our new space at 150 Bay St. in the Powerhouse Arts District in the heart of downtown Jersey City. With the new gallery comes new expenses. Our $5,000 goal for this year’s event will help us outfit the new space with furnishings, exhibition pedestals, moveable walls with storage, signage, and a growing list of unexpected items. Our new mission is to provide the community with a beautiful, comfortable place to enjoy art and conversation, as well as a presentation space for professional development and enrichment activities.
#HudsonGives is a major initiative of The Hudson County Chamber Foundation using the power of social media facilitated by the online giving platform, GiveGab. 501(c) (3) non-profit organizations, such as Pro Arts, are invited to raise funds through tax-deductible charitable donations made during the 24-hour event.
Although donations of any amount are greatly appreciated, Pro Arts will again reward those who make the first 10 donations of $100 or more with original works of art by member artists. The GiveGab platform provides participating organizations with donation competitions and other fun incentives to increase their fundraising efforts. We encourage everyone to reach-out to friends and family to help Pro Arts create a new, distinctive art space in Jersey City!
