Save the dates for ART OnSite events

ART OnSite, a project that The Sierra Fund serves as fiscal sponsor, is making great progress towards their fundraising goal of matching $20,000 in the next year – but needs your support for this great environmental art project.  We now have raised 60% of funds needed, thanks to numerous local project supporters.

We hope you will join us in supporting this project at upcoming events later this summer:

Hold the date for a fundraiser on August 8 (location TBD) that will help support ongoing project activities.
