Many of us really want to donate money to the arts or a cause we support, especially a local one. But especially if you're new to an area, going out and finding that right cause can seem like a whole lot of work.
That's why websites like Kickstarter and Indie Go Go started. They both are platforms for individuals and groups to raise money for their projects. As a donor, you can browse through local and national fundraisers and donate online. Depending on how much you donate, you get perks, too. Whether it be a sincere thank you in a program, a postcard or event tickets, you are sure to get more than a good feeling when donating here.
Right now on Indie Go Go, you have the opportunity to make donations to the following local initiatives:
Theatre ’d Art Season 5
Support local theater by contributing to help fund the fifth season of this company, described as the "most daring, challenging, and ambitious season ever," according to their page on the site. You can also get comp tickets by donating.
Set just after World War II, Sarah Lotfi's newest film project centers around the idea of having people with disabilities in those types of situations. You may get to see the film in advance with your donation.
This organization aims to raise awareness about and protect and save dogs from puppy mills. A donation will get you a bumper sticker, magnet or decal, and a warm fuzzy feeling.
The Infinity Option
Local man Howard Prager wrote a book about the peril the Earth faces in 70 years, and what humanity can do about it now. A donation will help fund the publishing of the book, and may get you a copy of the book.
