We made it!
The Art Monastery Italy has raised $5000, thanks to you.
We are thrilled to announce that our IndieGoGo campaign was a huge success! Thanks to the generosity of 47 donors, each of whom gave anywhere from $10 to $1,000, we achieved our $5,000 goal just in time for the campaign’s conclusion on July 1. The Artmonks in Italy are filled with huge, heartfelt gratitude to all of you who reached into your pockets, donated frequent flyer miles, helped spread the word, and left beautiful comments on our campaign page. We are awed and inspired by your support.
So what’s next? Thanks to our generous supporters, we’re looking forward to a whole summer full of art! If you or anyone you know will be in Italy, we’d love to see you at one of the events below.
