We’ve been challenged and need your help??
A generous benefactor has pledged to match dollar per dollar up to $4,000
towards the Calumet Art Center’s Barrier Free Access Campaign!
The campaign has been going on to make the Calumet Art Center ADA accessible!
We have raised $8,000 through private donations
and a grant from the Keweenaw National Park towards our goal.
We are halfway there!
Plans are to reconstruct the side entrance to the Calumet Art Center
by a single level and to add a wheelchair ramp for barrier free access.
The front entrance currently used has two levels of stairs making it
difficult for those with limited ability to gain easy access.
The entrances to the second floor performance hall also have two to
three levels of very steep stairs.
Cost estimates for this project have been developed
with UP Engineers and Architects with a projected total of $16,000.
The new pathway, ramp and entrance will be alongside the Heritage Rose Garden to
welcome all patrons for the purpose of attending classes, mentoring, talking circles,
drumming, youth programs and so much more.
Your donations to this project will be a great contribution to
our community and will benefit patrons with special needs
and allow them to take part in many wonderful programs.
Remember, your donation will be matched, dollar for dollar.
Our organization is a 501c3 non-profit so your contribution
is tax deductible to the full extent of the law.
