Can you help me raise 3K4AJ?

#3K4AJ can be accomplished by donating here or as easily as committing to be one of 10 people to set a goal to crowd-fund with a goal of $300 each. Set up your own page by logging into the website and volunteering to fundraise, cut and paste the last paragraph of this post if you like and add your WHY?  

To reach the last hurdle before we can start with programs! We need your help to raise $3000 for some filing fees and insurance and then we can start our programming.  We have come so far and this final hurdle will give us the legal requirements covered!!!! 

The AJ Project is a non-profit, 501(c)3 arts organization with a mission to make “Adulting” easier for creative people.  Our goals are to connect artists with resources that will support their choice to keep the arts in their lives.  We offer fiscal sponsorship as well as develop opportunities to create, cultivate and curate their artistic passions.

     The AJ Project brings awareness to the need for organ donors.  In 2013 AJ Perrelli was one of only 239 donors in the greater New York Area*

    The greater New York area including Westchester, Nassua and Suffolk counties has the lowest organ donation rate in the country. It is listed as 50th in the nation with Puerto Rico being the only one lower.  Christine Perrelli met Donna McKenna through her work in the arts with The AJ Project.  When they met she had no idea that her husband Tim was on the waiting list for a life saving Kidney.  In 2017 Tim received a donor kidney all the way from Chicago. The AJ Project is proud to bring you their story.
