Current Campaign:

This year we launched the Ojai Institute, a new initiative of the Carolyn Glasoe Bailey Foundation. We are grateful for the enthusiastic support in our community and beyond.

We are so inspired by all of the charitable giving efforts around the country and the way institutions, corporations, and individuals are wishing to make a greater impact by matching gifts this #GivingTuesday.

In this vein, we are grateful to our Board for pooling resources to offer a year end match in support of the Ojai Institute! Any gift in any amount up to $35,000 will be matched through December 31, 2019. Your support is critical to the work we do in our community engaging artists, youth, and our members in learning first hand from artists, having important conversations, and offering transformational art experiences at no cost. We strongly believe in the power of art to change lives and the importance of life long learning, while we advocate for artists. Thank you for your continued support!

Special thanks to Board members Bruce Mason, Lila Glasoe Francese, Carl Stibolt, and Alan Polsky for their leadership and support of this year’s match. And additionally we would like to express our gratitude to Corinne Bourdeau & Andrew Koski, and an anonymous donor, for their lead gifts to our year end campaign.

Help us, help you, double the impact of your gift by clicking the donate button!
