Support Stone Canoe
As a fledgling community arts enterprise, Stone Canoe needs the help of partners and friends to survive. It is a substantial and beautiful publication, as those of you who have seen it are well aware. Stone Canoe is also the only publication of its kind, with a very ambitious mission—to showcase the best work of a diverse cross-section of artists and writers with ties to the greater Upstate New York region, thereby demonstrating to the world at large the remarkable breadth and depth of artistic and intellectual life that characterizes the region. Having already won two publication honors within six months of our launch, we hope to continue to increase our stature and our distribution with each succeeding issue.
Additional funding will allow for more cash awards to new and deserving artists and writers, and also expansion of our arts outreach projects such as our current reading series and annual community arts exhibition.
We know that participation in the journal has had an important impact on the lives of many of the 71 contributors to our first issue. Many readers have also told us how important it is to have such a vehicle to give them an enriched understanding of their own community. We hope the “stone will stay afloat” for many years to come. Any contribution, large or small, will help us ensure that it does.
Since Stone Canoe lives under the umbrella of Syracuse University’s not-for-profit designation, as a private university dedicated to the public good. As such, all donations are tax deductible to the full extent of the law.
