I am now in my third year of serving as Treasurer of the Board of the Capitol Hill Arts Workshop (CHAW), a wonderful organization that ensures that the arts remain an important part of the DC community. Please check out CHAW’s 2018 Annual Report to learn more about everything the organization accomplished last year in support of this mission (spoiler alert: last year, CHAW served over 9,000 students and patrons through 186 different classes and workshops, among other amazing accomplishments).  

One of the most wonderful things about CHAW is the fact that we have never turned a potential student away for the inability to pay. In 2018, we provided over $110,000 in tuition assistance, subsidized rental space, and outreach efforts to help homeless youth, displaced young adults, and veterans and their families experience and participate in the arts. A few weeks ago, we launched our Paint Bucket Campaign, an annual effort to raise funds for CHAW’s tuition assistance program. This year, we plan to raise $70,000 by July 22nd and I would much appreciate your support in this fundraising effort.  

To that end, I am asking that you help me reach my personal Paint Bucket goal of $2,500. I will match $25 for every $250 donated toward this personal goal and Evan has offered to give high fives to everyone who donates! Help ensure that he doles out as many high fives as possible by becoming an advocate for this campaign—use the social media, text, and email links found on the Advocates tab to easily share my Paint Bucket campaign with your network. We see the positive effect of creativity and the arts every day at CHAW, so help us spread the arts far and wide. 

Thanks so much for considering a donation to CHAW's Paint Bucket 2019 Campaign!


We are only a week into my Paint Bucket campaign and you guys have already helped raise $2,200!  Thank you all.

Let's see how quickly we can surpass the $2,500 mark and help give the gift of the arts to as many people as possible.  Not only will reaching (and exceeding) this goal earn everyone extra high fives, it would make Evan happier than that time we bought a 30 pound jackfruit...and proceeded to carry it around the city for the rest of the night.
