MASK MoCA Indeed

A Friend in Need

By: - May 08, 2020

Dear members, friends, and patrons,

With so much to say, and so much to do, it gets down to this: if you believe our work at MASS MoCA is important, and you wish to help sustain it, now is the time. Please donate whatever you're able to our COVID-19 Relief Fund, or join or renew as a member. Every single dollar matters — always — but especially now: a generous donor has jump-started our efforts with a $250,000 challenge grant, which we need to triple by June 1st.

If you wish to know more about why your support matters, and why it matters right now, please go here for a far more detailed report, including a nitty-gritty accounting of what actions we’ve taken to sustain MASS MoCA during these contorted months.

And finally, to those who have already given so generously (there are many of you!), to all those who are considering a sustaining gift to MASS MoCA now (we hope there are many, many more!), but also, to all those who might like to pitch in but simply cannot under these difficult circumstances (we understand), I join my colleagues, our board of Trustees, and hundreds of MASS MoCA artists in saying…thank you for thinking of us. 

Believe me, we are thinking of you, and wishing you well.  We cannot wait to have you all back, re-gathering together around the extraordinary acts of creativity that define MASS MoCA (even if it will be MASK MoCA, for a while.)
