Creating Community Through Art
Wichita Art Day of Giving (ArtDOG) was a three-year initiative of the Wichita Community Foundation. It was a 24-hour charitable giving campaign designed to support area nonprofits related to the arts. Participating organizations had the opportunity to both increase their donor bases and bring awareness to not only their nonprofit, but the arts in general.
Creating the Spark to Start a Movement
In the fall of 2014, the Wichita Community Foundation, Wichita Downtown Development Corporation and the Wichita Metro Chamber of Commerce’s Leadership Council partnered to host the Fuel the Fire Speaker Series.
The purpose of the series was to engage the community in discussions about national trends on the topics of talent, opportunity and place to competitively position Wichita for the future.
Featured speakers were Carol Coletta, Vice President of Community and National Initiatives at the John S. & James L. Knight Foundation, James Chung, President of Reach Advisors and Brad Segal, President of Progressive Urban Management Associates.
