AIDS Vancouver Partnership

AIDS VancouverI heart local art and Open Door Gallery are pleased to announce the I Heart Local Art fundraising partnership, in celebration of a shared community focus and an investment in local arts and health.  10% of all artwork sales will support the AIDS Vancouver Grocery Program.

Every painting purchase qualifies as a corporate deduction at 100% purchase price with no maximum.

Nutrition is paramount for sustaining and prolonging the health and quality of life for those whose immune systems are compromised by the HIV virus. This program, unique to AIDS Vancouver, is supported by 1 Full-time staff and 20 dedicated volunteers who are passionate about delivering this vital, life-sustaining program. Annually, the Grocery program must raise over $300,000 to purchase food that is not contributed by other means.

When people affected by HIV/AIDS experience difficulties in accessing services or have a financial, transportation, medical, food, housing or other problem, quality services are available from AIDS Vancouver: Case Management Services, Financial Assistance Fund, Grocery and Nutrition Support, Outreach Care Teams Support, and a Confidential Helpline. AIDS Vancouver has been serving the community since 1983, and was the first AIDS service organization in Canada.

As Co-Founder of iArtView, I have reviewed hundreds of galleries and how they set up their businesses. Open Door Gallery’s concept to unite e-commerce gallery sales with a charitable organization is a timely and brilliant business model. Making a difference to those in need while supporting culture and the arts makes sense. Being able to write off your art purchase is a huge bonus too! I hope to see more galleries follow Open Door Gallery’s lead.
