Support ACTA


20th anniversary brochure cover

20 Years of ACTA-vism!

In 2017, The Alliance for California Traditional Arts marks twenty years of serving California's folk and traditional artists. Over our 20 year history, ACTA has 

• invested $5.2 million into the folk and traditional arts field 

• awarded grants to 590 traditional arts organizations 

• supported 314 master artists and their apprentices 

• worked in 50 of California’s 58 counties 

• served 17 state prisons with our Arts in Corrections traditional arts workshops 

ACTA’s role has always been to support traditional artists and to learn from their communities. Would you consider making a gift —perhaps $20 or $200 or (goodness!) $2,000 for ACTA’s 20th anniversary— and help us continue our work? Or better yet, give a little once a month in the form of a recurring gift throughout the year. 

You can make a donation online or send a check to ACTA’s office, located at 744 P Street #307, Fresno, CA 93721. ACTA is a nonprofit, 501(c)3 organization, and all donations are tax deductible.
