Thank You to our Sponsors and Supporters!
As a 501(c)(3) nonprofit, BAAY relies on the generosity of our donors and sponsors. These are the heroes behind the scenes, who allow us to offer generous scholarships and continue to expand our program outreach so that all local youth have access to the arts. A standing ovation to each and every one of you!
BAAY is grateful to be supported, in part, by grant funding from the Washington State Arts Commission and the National Endowment for the Arts.
Thank you Whatcom Community Foundation for grant funding supporting BAAY in 2022!
“I Belong at BAAY” October 2020 donors:
In addition to business sponsors, individual donors, and our sustaining monthly Encore donors, in October 2020 during the pandemic we also had a major online fundraiser in connection with a documentary we made about our first 15 years of operation called “I Belong at BAAY” (view it online here).
We are deeply grateful to each and every donor – you are truly buoying BAAY’s mission through this storm when children, youth, families, and communities need the arts more than ever.
