End of Year Giving


Dear Friends,

It’s Our 15th Anniversary!

The BlackRock family is at a pivotal point in its history and development.  We are proudly embarking on our 15th season, and it is your love and devotion that has paved the way, helped us achieve many victories and is now helping us build a great future.

Matching Grants Double the Value of Your Gift

This year we are in a fortunate position: if you choose to designate your gift to support technology or summer concert series, any financial gift you give to Black Rock will be matched! This is thanks to a $50,000 technology grant from Arts and Humanities Council of Montgomery County and a $15,000 programming grant from the National Endowment for the Arts.  That will empower us to elevate our journey to greater achievements, and with your generosity, update our ailing equipment and present an even greater diversity of programming.  Together, we can achieve the incredible!

BlackRock is the Heart of Your Community

As your new Executive Director, I am honored and eager to start working side-by-side with you to shape the vision and the future of this breathtaking center.  This is your center, your creative hub, and the artistic soul of your community.  On behalf of the talented and very committed BlackRock team, I invite you to get more involved and to share your interests and passions with us.

Your Donation Will Make a Difference

The BlackRock family is here for you, for our community, for artistic talent, and most importantly, for our children. We promise your donation will make a world of difference. We never take the privilege of your support for granted.  Your gift of time or treasure is critical because it provides the resources that make an immediate impact. Please consider supporting BlackRock with as generous a gift as you can.

Wishing you and your family a Happy Holiday season and a Wonderful New Year!

Alyona A. Ushe and the BlackRock Team
