Support SiTE:LAB In The ArtPrize “Arts For All” Fundraising Challenge
If you have ever considered making a financial contribution to SiTE:LAB, now is the time. We are participating in the ArtPrize “Arts for All Challenge”. This unique fundraising effort benefits us directly and gives us the opportunity to win additional monies to support our entirely volunteer run organization.
We are normally not in favor of organizations having to compete for dollars (especially with all of the great groups that are involved in this challenge), but every tax-deductable dollar we raise in this challenge we will receive; the “challenge” part of it, we see as a bonus.
Please see our CrowdRise funding page below and share with your friends. Every dollar helps us continue to stage the events and exhibits that you have grown to love.
Thank you from the entire team at SiTE:LAB. And we look forward to seeing you a week from today for the opening night of Rumsey Street Project.

“Today we’re excited to announce the launch of the ‘Arts For All’ ArtPrize Challenge. In collaboration with Michigan-based fundraising platform CrowdRise, ArtPrize extended the innovative fundraising campaign to nonprofit arts and culture organizations with which they collaborate as venues and programmatic partners in Grand Rapids. Ten art and culture nonprofit organizations in the Grand Rapids area have stepped up to the Challenge, for the chance to win $50,000 in cash prizes. Each participating organization works closely with ArtPrize, and stands the chance of winning part of the prize money. The Challenge started today, September 15 at Noon and runs through October 20, 2015 at 2 p.m. EST.
Participating organizations will raise money through CrowdRise during the challenge timeframe, and the three organizations that raise the most money during the challenge period will receive donations to their cause. First place will receive $20,000; second place $10,000; and third place $5,000. An additional $15,000 will be awarded through four unique bonus challenges that will take place throughout the campaign. All participating organizations will keep the money that they raise during the ‘Arts For All’ ArtPrize Challenge.”
