President’s Message

EXCITING NEWS! Durango Friends Of The Arts celebrates our 25th ANNIVERSARY!!! 2016 has brought with it a surge of energy from our many wonderful members. Durango Friends Of The Arts, being an all-volunteer organization, is off and running with fabulous fundraising events planned and some that have already happened! These events raise funds for our 2017 Grants’ fund, for which applications will be accepted early this fall.

We are proud this year to be a participant in the Arts & Economics Prosperity Study V, conducted every four years, by the Americas for the Arts. This is the Fifth national economic impact study of America’s nonprofit arts and culture industry, and ultimately provides quantifiable economic impact of nonprofit arts and culture organizations and their audiences.

I personally want to thank each DFA member for their membership and continued support! It takes each one of you to make Durango Friends Of The Arts successful, to continue our mission to raise awareness, promote cultural diversity and to award grant monies we raise to a variety of artists and art-related programs in our area.

My Sincere Thank You,
Tina Marie Trump
