This year, CAAC’s annual arts fundraiser, Uncommon Cause, will be more uncommon than planned. In an effort to keep our community safe, we have decided to move this year’s Uncommon Cause to an online format.
Although this was not an easy decision, we are confident that it was the right one. As the arts continue to unite us in new and innovative ways, having the community's support is more important than ever.
For over 45 years, Uncommon Cause has been the biggest fundraiser for CAAC and for arts in Columbus, as it provides the support needed to deliver a broad range of high-quality arts programs, events and services to our community. With this unforeseen adjustment, our board and staff are working on alternative fundraising models, including an online art and design auction and sale featuring work by local creatives and students. Proceeds raised from the online auction and sale will directly support artist-led and student-led programs, as well as provide resources for local creatives in 2021.
In lieu of attending or sponsoring an in-person Uncommon Cause, there will be several new ways for folks to give to the organization. Right now, donations can be made at www.artsincolumbus.org/donate; more ways to support CAAC will be announced soon.
