Help Paint Seven Stars Arts Center

$8,107 of $12,000 goal

Raised by 40 people in 37 months
Dear Friends:

Our beloved and historic Seven Stars building is in urgent need of exterior painting, and the job is going to be sizable in time and cost - It's been estimated at 12-35K.   We are applying for grants that may cover a portion of that, but they would likely not be awarded until later this year. Therefore, we've started our fundraising campaign to begin painting the sections that need more immediate attention.  Your donation would help us reach our goal of $12000.    

Many of you come through our doors every week for music lessons, art classes, yoga, tai chi, calligraphy, dance classes, meetings, concerts, and gatherings.  We are an important part of your community, and we really need your support.  Any amount helps.  Thank you for making your donation today!  You can also donate with PayPal through our website at and be sure to click on the"Help Paint" button, or donate by personal check to SSAC, PO Box 216, Sharon, VT 05065, and write "paint" on the memo line of your check.
Seven Stars Arts Center, Inc.  is a 501(c)3 non-profit arts organization serving the Upper Valley and beyond. For more information about our mission and the many programs we offer please visit us at

We were awarded a grant of $5000 to be put towards our painting goal, with great thanks to Mascoma Savings Bank Foundation! That, plus the individual donations and this go fund me campaign, has brought us up to $6850+/-!! We're getting really close, friends! Can you help? We're proving that every donation, large and small, will get us there. We are also feeling a renewed sense of urgency, as the beginnings of some insurance grumblings have been felt. They want us to paint asap! Please support local arts AND local historic buildings with a donation today! (and share this campaign)
