Here is a commendable effort by GLAC (Great Lakes Aradhana Committee) to grow classical arts in Michigan.
History is being made in Michigan! A Michigan Fine Arts Endowment Fund is being created to help develop, promote and encourage the arts in Michigan for the benefit of our children and our local communities for 2022 and beyond. This is the first of it's kind in Michigan and in the USA for Classical Arts.
Over the previous 35 years, the Michigan Thygaraja Aradhana has been running with the support from individual donor funds managed by GLAC and have supported a variety of arts and culture programming. The event has also been a fundraiser for the Paschima Kasi Sri Viswanatha Temple for the past 35 years where all the proceeds collected have been fully donated to the Temple.
To make the Michigan Thyagaraja Aradhana a sustainable initiative in the upcoming decades, GLAC is starting a 'Michigan Fine Arts Endowment Fund', an endowed fund which will work by investing the principal and using only the interest to make the grants available to our community. The result is a gift that continues to grow and support the arts for many, many years to come. What more, the funds donated can be tailored to your personal and financial interests making this a lasting gift that is right for you.
For generations, patrons of arts, music and culture have helped open eyes, touch spirits, enrich souls, connect people, create understanding, and overcome differences. Lifetime gifts and legacies keep the arts alive—supporting artists, promoting culture, and improving communities.
