Dear AUI friends and supporters:

Thank you so much for your amazing contributions to AUI’s Give Greater Allen campaign!

With your generous support, we were able to surpass our initial campaign goal and have raised
a total of $3,315! If you were following our campaign on social media, you know that our initial
goal was to raise $2,500—a goal we reached in the early afternoon of the Give Greater day of

With that goal achieved, we were able to pivot and increase our campaign goal to $3,500. We
reached 95% of this second goal, finishing 45th out of 110 organizations participating in the
day’s fundraising efforts. Thanks to you, we landed in the top half of organizations receiving
donations through Give Greater.

That’s great news—but even more exciting is the fact that these funds have been matched
dollar-for-dollar, doubling the impact of our Give Greater campaign. With these funds, we will
be even more equipped to continue to provide life-enriching access to the arts to all of our
audiences and fulfilling our mission of #arts4all!

“I was overwhelmed with all of the support that our community provided for AUI,” said
Yusanda Blackmon, Development Director. “Allen County showed up for AUI in a big way. As
this organization’s Development Director, it was such a joy connecting those we serve with to
those we serve. Thank you!”

Every dollar makes a difference. Together, we can break down barriers to reach often-forgotten
audiences and creators and continue to enrich, entertain, affirm, and inspire!
