L M ALCOTT ART CENTER FOUNDATION
March 13, 2011

I first encountered the Alcott Art Center while working on a play they produced in 2004. Their positive attitude and willingness to support the arts community in every way possible was why I decided to support the organization as much as I could. I have been a supporter and friend to them ever since.

The Alcott has an open-mindedness that is becoming more and more scarce as our culture becomes more and more reserved, and the work that they display and support reflects that. They push at the boundaries of our comfort zone and make us better people because of it.

When my friend, an actor and director, was horribly disfigured in a brutal attack, he needed some money to cover medical expenses. I decided to throw a fundraiser for him, and within minutes of soliciting a venue, they offered their theater space, and did everything they could to help me help my friend, who is now recovered and doing well. I don't know of any other organization that would have gone to such lengths to help a fellow artist like that. It was amazing.

I look forward to continued and expanded involvement in the organization as I believe that with all they do for their community, they deserve as much support as possible. I will continue to headquarter my film club there, and I will always look to them first when planning events and shows.

They deserve your support!

The Great!

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

As I mentioned in my review, they sprung to action when I helped a fellow artist overcome a tragic event, and they are always there when my club needs a venue for an event.

Ways to make it better...

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

They DESPERATELY need a new heating system for their building. If I could do anything, I would help them make that happen so they could continue their work through the cold months.
