Become a Pillar of Cathedral Arts!

Dear Friends:

Saint Matthew’s Cathedral Arts is celebrating its fifth season!

Through the free art programs offered by SMCA, St. Matthew’s Cathedral is identified as a center for arts, education, and community in East Dallas. Over 2,000 adults and children from the surrounding neighborhoods and beyond have experienced our free arts events in the past twelve months. These events include educational art programs for children, music performances, monthly Choral Evensong services, gallery exhibits and artist receptions, and guest lectures.

In the past five years a mix of culturally diverse school children living within one mile of the cathedral, as well as Uptown Dallas, Lakewood and the Park Cities, have participated in the Cathedral Choristers and Open Art Studio initiatives. Continuing cuts to public school performing and visual arts programs are a major concern being partially addressed by free access to these high-quality after-school programs.

St. Matthew’s Cathedral Arts receives no funding from the annual Cathedral budget or the Episcopal Diocese of Dallas. Our financial support comes primarily from supporters who are members and friends of the Cathedral. Additional funding is provided by Communities Foundation of Texas, the annual North Texas Giving Day initiative, and the Swiss Avenue Historical District.

Planning is now underway for a celebratory fifth anniversary season. SMCA needs your support as we continue to grow and strategically plan for next year and beyond. Our goal for this year’s Pillar Campaign is $10,000.00, which equals 100 gifts of $100 each. Your gift of one or more “pillars” at $100 each will help us reach this goal and enable us to continue offering the high quality, free public arts programming people have come to expect from St. Matthew’s Cathedral Arts.

All gifts are greatly appreciated and fully tax-deductible.

With sincere thanks for your consideration,

Michie Akin
Founding Director
