Ucross has had a remarkable year. We provided uninterrupted time to more than 140 artists, served as a responsible steward of our 20,000-acre ranch, and expanded access to the arts to our community. Throughout it all, we celebrated our anniversary, fostered the creative spirit, honored our past, and prepared for the future, most notably by entering the final stage of our $5 million comprehensive 40th Anniversary Campaign.
Thanks to our commitment to artists and the creative process, Ucross has become one of the most sought-after and relevant residency programs. And your support has made this all possible.
We hope that you will consider including Ucross in your year-end giving and help us conclude our 40th Anniversary Campaign with a flourish. As a nonprofit organization, we rely on individual donations to support each artist's residency, which costs approximately $12,000.
Your tax-deductible gift will also help us serve as a cultural resource for our local and national communities by supporting free access to exceptional exhibitions, performances, artist workshops, author talks, and other programs.
Every donation, at any amount, counts toward our 40th Anniversary. Every gift matters. Help us ring in the next 40 years.
Thank you. We wish you and yours a very Happy New Year!
