Sometimes the universe sends us a message. The most recent (for me) is this graphic from the National Museum of Women in the Arts. It’s a strong reminder on why I created Girls That Create and believe in its purpose with my entire heart.
I’ve been trying to figure out how to financially support Girls That Create with an online platform. Several weeks ago I was chatting with a dear colleague who suggested I look into setting a Patreon account.
What is Patreon? They’ve put together a great video to explain.
Basically Patreon allows you to directly support Girls That Create on a monthly basis at predetermined giving levels (tiers). Based on the tier level you support, at the end of every month (and in some cases every three months) your support is rewarded with special offers that only those giving through Patreon receive. As written on the Patreon page, “Our platform provides thousands of creators the opportunity to create on their own terms.” Right now there are 200,000+ creators on Patreon.
In a nutshell, if you like the content appearing on Girls That Create and want to see the project grow – become a Patron. If you feel strongly about balancing out representation in mainstream media and seeing more women in leadership positions in the arts – become a Patron. If you want to help artists and inspire the next generation of artists – become a Patron. You can stop being a Patron at anytime.
Click HERE to see the different tier levels, they start at $6/month. There is no way for me to express through words how grateful I’d be for your support. Your dollars will make it possible for me to focus more time on curating and developing content that will benefit creative girls and their families. It will also help me take Girls That Create to a new level in 2021. If you have questions, send me an email. If you’d like more information about how Patreon works or need help with your patron account, you can view a ton of resources on Patreon’s support page.
