How to Donate:
Art in Motion is a registered Kentucky non-profit corporation. Our fiscal agent is LexArts and donations can be made by mailing a check (with a notation of ‘Art in Motion fund’ on your check) to:
161 North Mill Street
Lexington, KY 40507
Your donations are fully tax-deductible and will help us build shelters and offset general expenses like copies, post office box fees and mailing costs.
Art in Motion needs organizational funding to make our project sustainable. Since 2006, we have received only direct grants for building projects; no staff or organizational funding has been received by AIM. Ideally, we would like funding for a part-time staff coordinator position. All of AIM’s work has been done on a 100-percent volunteer basis.
AIM Funding Sources:
Our funds have come from a combination of local, state, federal and non-profit grants. We have received grants from LFUCG’s Corridors Commission, LexArts, Kentucky Transportation Cabinet’s Congestion Mitigation Air Quality (CMAQ) and Transportation Enhancement (TE) programs, The Knight Foundation, Lexington Neighborhood Development funds and private donations, LexTran has provided matching grants for each of our shelters projects. 100 percent of these funds have gone directly into shelter construction or design prizes.
No member of Art in Motion’s staff or board has ever received any compensation of any kind.
In fact, staff and board members have covered most of the general organizational expenses of the group since its inception in 2006 out of our own pockets.
