Momentum grows in arts education funding campaign

Supporters have so far donated $3,000 toward San Juan Island Community Foundation's matching grant program on behalf of funding for arts education in the San Juan Island's public school system.

The San Juan Island Community Foundation created a matching gift opportunity wherein it will match 50 percent of every donation (up to $5,000) made to the “Arts in our Schools: Steam II” program through the foundation’s website. Organizers said $10,000 needs to be raised to take full advantage of the match.
