In early November, Mike Allen of The Roanoke Times cast a spotlight on the Roanoke Cultural Endowment’s mission and fundraising progress towards a sustainable arts and culture endowment for the City of Roanoke.
As we celebrate our fundraising achievement to date, it is important to re-direct that spotlight onto the many individuals and corporate donors who have collectively built the endowment to this point. We thank Roanoke’s arts and culture nonprofits for making Virginia’s Blue Ridge a phenomenal place to live. And we applaud our partner, the City of Roanoke, Virginia – Government, for both initiating the creation of the RCE and supporting our efforts through the years. Here’s to building, together, a long-term lifeline for the arts!
