Please donate $10 or more to The Muse during this online fundraiser. It’s easy, and it’s tax-deductible, but if you are not able to donate, you can still help us by spreading the word, sharing our Facebook event, and engaging your friends.

We have Great News! A generous donor has given us a challenge. If we can raise $35,000 in one day during Give Local 757, they will donate an additional $15,000to our organization. Please help us reach our goal.

Please remember that only donations made on Tuesday, May 11 will count toward grant prizes and our challenge.
