To date, we have raised $3.1 million of our $5 million goal!
The Union for Contemporary Art’s $5 million Blue Lion Growth Campaign contributes to the renovation of the building and includes coverage for three years of organizational expenses to help sustain our programs and operations during this period of accelerated expansion. $1.5 million is being raised for expenses connected to the construction of The Union’s 16,000 sq. ft. facility in the Blue Lion, and to cover the purchase of new equipment and furniture. The majority of the funds raised during the campaign will be used to facilitate programs and operations for the next three years and will develop a $500,000 reserve fund; helping to support our growth and the ongoing sustainability of the organization.
