This is a year like no other. And, for Stone Soup, this has to be an Annual Drive like no other. We are aware that Stone Soup is not alone in being confronted with unique challenges and uncertainties. All our inboxes have numerous letters from arts organizations asking for support in tones more urgent than usual. This year, drawing on language that is common in arts organizations, we'd like to frame our request for support in terms of becoming a patron. Patrons of the arts are often deeply involved with the organizations they are supporting in ways that go beyond one-off donations. Patrons often donate regularly, participate in the organizations' programs, like visit the museum or go to the ballet, and also work as volunteers.
When you choose Stone Soup as the organization for which you will be a patron, you change lives. The students whose lives you enrich and whose work you make possible as a Stone Soup patron are the writers, artists, musicians, and thinkers of the future.
Please join us. Thank you!
