    Fundraising Goals & Status
    .
    We are once again facing a critical funds shortage at the end of February. The BCCA came into existence from the personal savings of a few individuals passionate about the arts and community, people no different from you and your neighbors. The BCCA has not had the benefit of funding from wealthy benefactors, foundations, or multi-year fundraising campaigns. Whether you view us as the new kid on the block or a community treasure, we'd like to count on your support. Please help support the wonderful programs we are bringing to you, such as our Summer Arts Program or this weekend's ballet master class. There are so many ways you can help.
    1) Why wait until last minute? Please buy a ticket for our March 13 Benefit.
    2) Make a donation. Every dollar counts!
    3) Consider sponsorship. How would you like your business listed on over 10,000 Spring Class Catalogs?
    4) Participate in a class, workshop, or upcoming event. Bring a friend! There are so many great drop-in classes to choose from.
    5) And...

    The BCCA is forming a fundraising committee. If you have a strong interest in helping BCCA meet its financial and business development goals, please consider serving on our committee. Just think about the tremendous impact your efforts can make to the BCCA and the community it serves. For further information, email Vlad Selsky or call 617-233-4647.

    Great news on our tax exempt status! Our 501(c)(3) application is now in the closing stages of review with the IRS, and we have received IRS confirmation that all donations are tax exempt retroactive to January 2003. There has been no better time to make a donation than today! We can take credit cards by phone 617-738-2800, or send check to BCCA, 14 Green St., Brookline, MA 02446.

    Do you want to get noticed by over 2600 (and quickly growing) subscribers? For a modest contribution, your advertisement can go here! E-mail Vlad Selsky for more details.

    Jazz-Songwriter Showcase Benefit for the BCCA!
    On March 13, there will be a spectacular Jazz- Songwriter Showcase to benefit the BCCA, featuring the jazz vocal and musical talents of seven amazing artists.

    All proceeds benefit the BCCA and further our fundraising and development goals. Please come and support the BCCA, and please tell all your friends and family! Tickets purchased in advanced are offered at a discounted price.
