The Pamela and Craig Goldman Charitable Foundation Awards $25,000 to Studio Arc

September 3rd, 2020

In late 2019, The Pamela and Craig Goldman Charitable Foundation issued The Arc and its donors a two-part challenge – recruit 50 new donors to the Annual Appeal campaign to unlock $5,000, and secure an increased contribution from 75 percent of past annual appeal donors to unlock an additional $20,000. 

The Arc crushed the first challenge, to recruit 50 new donors, securing new donations from 126 people by early December 2019 and worked tirelessly through the winter towards the second challenge.  By late April, even amidst the pandemic, 75 percent of previous annual appeal donors had increased their donation!

In late August, The Pamela and Craig Goldman Charitable Foundation awarded The Arc the full $25,000 which will be used to furnish Studio Arc with professional-grade crafting equipment for pottery and candle-making, a wide array of studio art supplies, and more. 

The Arc of Essex County would like to extend its upmost appreciation to all of the donors who contributed to the 2019 annual appeal as well as to The Pamela and Craig Goldman Charitable Foundation.  Exciting updates regarding Studio Arc will be forthcoming soon.
