(Calgary AB) – Alberta Foundation for the Arts (AFA) today pledged $50,000 in matching funding for individual donations to the Alberta Arts Flood Rebuild Fund. The Fund, with a minimum $500,000 goal, will help Alberta’s arts community to rebuild in the aftermath of the 2013 floods.
This is the second such pledge received by Alberta Arts Rebuild partners for the Alberta Arts Flood Rebuild Fund since its launch on June 28 on InvestYYC.com. AFA joins Suncor Energy Foundation who announced a $100,000 commitment, also with a $50,000 matching component.
Money raised for the Fund will be administered throughout Alberta by a partnership of government and community agencies whose mandates include direct support of artists and arts organizations. Donors can visit AlbertaArtsRebuild.ca or, to donate by cash or cheque, email email@example.com.
