Creamery Refresh: #GiveOzarks 2017

Give Ozarks 2017

Thank you to every one who came out and made Artsfest a wonderful weekend. Your participation, your attendance, your support for artists and performers, helps to ensure the SRAC's outreach and programming efforts continue.

(Thank you!)

We. Love. Art.

You may have assumed as much, but it's true. So much, in fact, that we want to make sure that Springfield’s home for the arts, The Creamery Arts Center, is filled with the arts inside and out. In order to do that, we need your help.

Today for #GiveOzarks, we've set three goals. 

  1. $5,000 will fund a Creamery Refresh (mural, fresh coat of blue, and a variety of tech upgrades inside the building-faster Internet isn't as much fun as a mural, but an operational necessity).
  2. $2,500 will fund a free concert series at The Creamery.
  3. $2,500 will support the SRAC's education programs, including Free Art Days, and Arts in the Park Summer Workshops.


Public art and free public events provide access to the arts for all. You #GiveOzarks donation will help the SRAC reach its mission: to transform lives and enrich the community through the arts.

Ten-thousand dollars is a lofty goal, but a little bit can go a long way. The Community Foundation of the Ozarks, and its #GiveOzarks partners, have tremendous prizes available for organizations throughout the day. Those opportunities plus generous challenge grants up to $750 mean your support will go a long way.

We are looking for support between 7 and 9am. Every $5 makes a huge difference, and we’ll give anybody who donates between 7 and 9am a free vintage Artsfest t-shirt (while supplies last, of course). We want to spend the rest of our day supporting other wonderful arts and culture organizations participating in #GiveOzarks.

The generosity of the Ozarks never ceases to amaze us. Thank you in advance.
