2015 Campaign Closing Celebration

Each year, ArtsFund hosts a celebration to mark the end of our general fundraising campaign and recognize those who have contributed. On September 15th, ArtsFund Board members, volunteers, donors and arts organization leaders attended this year’s Campaign Closing Celebration at MOHAI. This lively event was the perfect way to celebrate our collective impact in supporting arts organizations during Campaign 2015 and to recognize outstanding volunteer contributions.

This year’s Associate Rookie of the Year award went to Hulya Kayir (Sellen Construction), who helped execute the biggest workplace giving campaign in ArtsFund history.  She also brought in $4,500 in corporate support. “501(c)(3)PO”, the Campaign 2015 Winning Associate Team led by Robert Cardona (Uptown Seattle), raised nearly $106,000 for ArtsFund. Finally, the Campaign 2015 Top Associate honor was awarded to Judy Yu (Strategy Clicks), who raised $14,000 this year from nearly 30 individual donors and 4 companies. Congratulations to all of the award winners and thank you for your hard work on behalf of ArtsFund and the Puget Sound arts & cultural sector!

In all, ArtsFund Associates raised over $450,000 for the 2015 Campaign and advocated on our behalf to hundreds of individuals.  Want to get in on all the fun? Recruiting for the Campaign 2016 Associates program is open until October 16th, 2015. Each year over 100 individuals form teams dedicated to generating support for the arts and cultural organizations that make our community thrive, while developing transferable skills, expanding their networks across sectors, and of course, having fun!
