On Sept. 12 you can give back to the arts during Charleston's Arts Matter Day (AMD), a day of community giving presented by the Charleston Regional Alliance for the Arts, benefitting arts nonprofits in Berkeley, Charleston, and Dorchester counties.

Local donors have raised $150,000 in incentive funds for AMD. According to the Charleston Arts Alliance, this is how your donation will work:

These funds will be distributed proportionately based on the amount raised and the number of participants, and while they are not technically “matching” funds, the Arts Alliance expects and average return of 10%-15% to each organization. Therefore, your donation has the potential to grow, enhancing your gift and increasing community impact.
You can give to multiple organizations (the full list ranges from Backpack Journalists to Enough Pie), spreading your tax-deductible donation across several organizations. You can also donate directly to the Alliance for the Arts, which will re-grant those funds.

And if you're part of a nonprofit that wants to be included in AMD, contact the Alliance for the Arts at or by calling (843) 577-5288.
