The Robert Rajir Foundation has offered a match grant of $12,500 to get us to $75,000

WVA ENDOWMENT GOAL MET - A NEW OPPORTUNITY ARISES

We met our goal of $50,000!
Yeah and congratulations to WVA members and supporters. . .we reached our $50,000 endowment goal! This was accomplished thanks to a matching grant from the Robert Rajir Foundation. A huge thank you to Robert Rajir and to everyone who sent in their checks to support and grow the Wisconsin Visual Artists Endowment Fund. When the State board met late in 2011 they set a new endowment goal of $75,000 and once again the Robert Rajir Foundation will give the WVA Endowment $12,500 if WVA can match his donation and raise $12,500. This money is invested with the Greater Milwaukee Foundation.
