To all our friends in the diaspora,

The Museo de Arte Contemporáneo de Puerto Rico (MAC) collaboratively joins in rebuilding our island after the passage of Hurrican María with your support. For the past four years we have been the sponsors of “El MAC en el Barrio”, a community based program providing the residents of San Juan with an outlet to participate and culturally tell their stories. This successful program was made possible with your contributions. Given the destruction wrought by Hurricane María we are refocusing this program of social integration towards one of community development. The Museum will serve as a convergence point of resilience where art and culture will be tools for us to face and overcome this current challenge.

The services to be provided include psychosocial support, art therapy, programs for school age children and youth and for the elderly. Also, we will convert public spaces with art and creativity utilizing and recycling the same hurricane debris. The Museum, our public spaces and refugee centers will be ones of cultural exchanges alleviating the pressures and tensions wrought. The need is not only immediate but also long term as our road to recovery will take time. In order to secure the resources and implement these services our goal is to obtain funding for our project within a month.

THE MAC IS A NON-PROFIT ORGANIZATION 501 (C) (3) AND ALL YOUR CONTRIBUTIONS ARE DEDUCTABLE FROM YOUR TAX RETURN.

We fully understand our current pressing needs in Puerto Rico. Our situation overall is not easy. But that noble spirit of el Boricua, wherever he may be, has actually come out stronger and prouder from this experience. With your contribution, we will ensure that our contemporary art culture is preserved, that our artists continue to excel locally and abroad and that all our communities have the same opportunities to that afforded to those that are privileged. We stress the importance of preserving our patrimony and of fully developing in all aspects our people.

Future generations will be grateful of the legacy you have provided them with this donation.

We at the Museo de Arte Contemporáneo de Puerto Rico humbly thank you.

A todos nuestros amigos en la diáspora:

El Museo de Arte Contemporáneo de Puerto Rico (MAC) se une al esfuerzo de recuperación de nuestro País tras el paso del huracán María y contamos con el apoyo de todos ustedes para lograrlo. Por los pasados cuatro años hemos implementado el programa comunitario El MAC en el Barrio que ha permitido acceso directo a los residentes de comunidades en San Juan a las que podremos ayudar gracias a sus donaciones. Estamos re-enfocando el uso de los fondos de este programa de acción e integración social hacia la recuperación comunitaria y convertiremos nuestra sede en un espacio de resiliencia donde el arte y la cultura serán las herramientas para levantarnos.

Los servicios a ofrecer incluyen apoyo psicosocial, arte terapia, programas para niños y jóvenes de nivel escolar y programas para personas de la tercera edad, que tanto física como emocionalmente han sido afectados por la situación. También procuraríamos habilitar áreas comunes con arte y diseño, maximizando recursos y reutilizando desperdicios sólidos y naturaleza afectada por las ráfagas. El espacio público de comunidades y refugios será uno de intercambio cultural y para el despeje de tensiones ante la carencia de requerimientos esenciales. La necesidad es inmediata y a largo plazo pues la recuperación del país se estima demorará meses. Para movernos con prontitud y encaminar los recursos nos estamos poniendo como meta reunir los fondos en el periodo de un mes.

EL MAC ES UNA ORGANIZACION SIN FINES DE LUCRO 501 (C) (3), POR TANTO TODAS LAS DONACIONES SERÁN DEDUCIBLES DE SUS CONTRIBUCIONES SOBRE INGRESOS.

El espíritu de nuestro pueblo reside en la voluntad de cada uno de sus ciudadanos y como todos ponemos nuestros talentos a colaborar para el bien común. Con su ayuda podremos darle trabajo a nuestros artistas y ayudar al MAC para llegar a operar con regularidad y seguir ofreciendo nuestros servicios a todas las audiencias. Enfatizamos la importancia de nuestra permanencia para la conservación de nuestro patrimonio y el desarrollo integral de los puertorriqueños, esfuerzo que continuaremos con su ayuda.

¡Gracias por su donativo!
