ALASKA ARTS SOUTHEAST INC
September 30, 2011

My daughter will be attending her fourth year of mini-camp in the spring of 2012. Because of the hard work and dedication of Alaska Arts Southeast (AASE) staff, board members, volunteers and financial donors, she will be attending camp on the historic Sheldon Jackson campus, the original home of Sitka Fine Arts Camp.

Since we live in Sitka, we are lucky enough to benefit directly not only from the presence of Sitka Fine Arts Camp, but from the Sheldon Jackson Campus rejuvenation project AASE has taken on. In the last 9 months, AASE has turned a boarded up eyesore back in to a welcoming, vibrant educational facility.

The Great!

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

watching the Sheldon Jackson campus once again become a valuable asset the the community of Sitka. Observing SFAC provide youth with the opportunity to develop personal artistic interests and skills through high quality, professional instruction in the arts.

Ways to make it better...

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

Have the money to hire more staff so AASE depended less on volunteer efforts.
