Why I Give Monthly – Donor Stories
When monthly donor Elizabeth Stauderman initially supported our mission, frankly she did so because she’s a dear friend of Susan’s, going all the way back to their college days.
And then Elizabeth’s father received the diagnosis of vascular dementia.
Vascular dementia can look like Alzheimer’s Disease. It typically affects more men than women. But it results from chronically reduced blood flow to the brain that can be caused by such conditions as high blood pressure, diabetes or stroke.
As the disease took its toll, Elizabeth noticed that one of the few times she could still connect with her father was when the two of them spent time at The Smithsonian Institution’s Sackler Gallery.
Experiencing firsthand the miraculous way that viewing art together could help her rediscover her connections with her own father opened Elizabeth’s eyes to the power of ARTZ. That’s when her reason for being a monthly donor became even more personal.
And as Elizabeth notes, “what’s great about being a monthly donor is that I can spread out my gift — and provide ARTZ with a guaranteed income stream. That’s so important for smaller organizations.”
As little as $5 a month makes a world of difference to people like Elizabeth’s father – and to those still trying to connect with the people they love, like Elizabeth and Rea.donate today
