Offroute's Fall Fundraiser is here!
The first 50 people who donate $50 or more will receive a limited edition Offroute "Weird Fishes" tote bag featuring art from artist Lena Fin.
Note: on the donation page, in the "What's this for?" section, please type "Fall Fundraiser" and include your email address. We will contact you about how to pick up / receive your tote bag. Tote bags will be distributed in September 2023.
Why a fundraiser now?
We have not run a fundraiser in a while thanks to two generous grants from the Greater Pittsburgh Arts Council and National Endowment for the Arts! Those funding periods are now over and we are proud that 85% of that funding went directly to compensating artists for their outreach, market, community engagement, and creative support. The rest helped us pay for event fees and supplies.
We are hoping to continue funding artists as well as commission artists to participate in our 2024 calendar. This Fall Fundraiser will help us continue this work throughout the rest of the year.
