Please send tax deductible dollars to “The Arts Fuse” so the magazine can continue to serve its mission — we need funds to pay our writers, to continue to grow our readership, and to raise our visibility around the region.

At the age of seven, The Arts Fuse is growing in leaps and bounds, which proves that there is considerable hunger for serious, independent coverage of the arts in Boston and throughout New England. And it supplies solid evidence that our ever-expanding pool of readers appreciate the efforts of our stalwart writers, award-winning critics and talented fledglings, who see this venue as an invaluable place to ply their trade. With your help, we will generate even more first-rate arts coverage: a curated gathering (approximately sixty new postings a month) of innovative, provocative, and informative reviews, commentaries, and features that goes beyond publicity blather and recycled PSAs. There are arts organizations large and small that recognize, and want to support, what we are doing to foster the health of arts and culture in Boston and New England. The Celebrity Series of Boston has become a year-long underwriter of our pioneering project: that kind of reinforcement for our mission is vital.
Our spring fundraiser raised four thousand dollars, making it possible to have our name advertised on top of Boston taxi cabs. Your support is much appreciated. Now we are wrapping up the year by asking you to send tax deductible dollars (on your 2013 tax return) to The Arts Fuse so the magazine can continue to serve its mission — we need funds to pay our writers, to continue to grow our readership, to improve the website, and to raise our visibility around the region. The Arts Fuse is at a tipping point: the ‘little’ magazine that could is well on its way blazing new trails. Please send what you can so the magazine can continue to stand strong as an indispensable alternative to the standard buzz.
