As part of this effort, from 4:29 a.m. on April 29 to 4:29 a.m. on April 30, participating arts organizations will encourage residents to donate to the arts through a Website, givelocalnow.org.

The site will offer a searchable database of arts non-profits and will provide detailed information on all of the participating organizations.

“The Arts Day of Giving is great exposure for the incredible work of our regional arts organizations and a great opportunity to show support for the culture and vitality that the arts bring to our region,” said Sacramento Mayor Kevin Johnson.

Over the course of the day, the region will come alive with hands-on art experiences from many of the local arts non-profits sharing their talents in multiple locations, urging citizens to “give where their art is” all day long.

More than a dozen local restaurants including Sienna in El Dorado Hills, Après Wine Company in South Lake Tahoe, Café Bernardo, Centro Cocina Mexicana, and Hot Italian in Sacramento will be providing incentives on that day for any person who shows proof of giving to the arts.

In addition, El Dorado Arts Council is hosting a drop in and give break from 8 to 10 a.m. Arts Day of Giving donors will enjoy coffee and croissants at ArtSpace, 459 Main St. in Placerville.

All donations received during the Arts Day of Giving will be matched by funds provided by the Sacramento Community Region Foundation, Wells Fargo, Western Health Advantage, SAFE Credit Union and others.

Day of Giving challenges have been held by communities across the country to raise funds and highlight the vital role that nonprofits play in community life.

The region’s first Arts Day of Giving will focus on the arts, paving the way for future Days of Giving across all nonprofit sectors.

The event was inspired by Mayor Johnson’s For Arts Sake Initiative and has been executed by Give Local Now with support from the Sacramento Metropolitan Arts Commission and the Sacramento Region Community Foundation.

“The arts encourage a thriving economy and strengthen community bonds, inviting everyone to share ideas and experiences,” said Deb Jensen, executive director at El Dorado Arts Council.

“The arts foster beauty, creativity, originality and vitality. The arts inspire us, sooth us, provoke us, involve us and connect us. They also create jobs and contribute to the economy,” said Jensen.

The El Dorado Arts Council promotes the arts, offers programs to schools and the public, provides a variety of services to artists and arts organizations and produces highest quality events. Through the visual, performing and literary arts, the El Dorado Arts Council nurtures the interconnecting bonds of family, community, and culture.
