Gifts that are Making our Holiday Brighter

 

The Weatherspoon recently received grants from two of our city’s longstanding philanthropic leaders:

The Cemala Foundation and Tannenbaum-Sternberger Foundation. Inc.  Both of these groups are mainstays in supporting nonprofit organizations in our community. One can only guess the scope—and effect—of their countless contributions over the years.

In the Weatherspoon’s case, their gifts are helping to address the sizable budget reductions we’ve experienced this year.  The Cemala Foundation’s gift will help support the crucial staff position of Associate Curator of Education and some of her programs. Terri Dowell-Dennis works with the Guilford County Schools, conducts teacher workshops, organizes our biannual Community Days, offers tours to school and community groups, and dozens of other things to keep our education program vibrant and meaningful.

Tannenbaum-Sternberger has offered a challenge grant to support our lively exhibition and program schedule.  For every 2 dollars that we raise, they will provide 1 dollar, up to $20,000.

You can help us meet our match by contributing online or by calling 336-334-5770

We’re truly grateful to both foundations.
