Connect2Culture (C2C) is a nonprofit arts organization founded in 2009 to enhance community through culture. Unlike any organization in the Joplin area, C2C is a respected community arts agency, a champion of the Harry M. Cornell Arts & Entertainment Complex, and a performing arts presenter. C2C strives to expand audience and provide resources needed to ignite a passion for the arts, culture, and entertainment in the Joplin area.
It has been a difficult and uncertain time for the arts and culture sector to say the least. Once the pandemic surfaced, C2C prioritized the health and safety of its patrons and volunteers by canceling in-person performances. Funds generated from ticket sales are designed to help us break even as a nonprofit. Despite it all, we have created more virtual programming and resources to assist local arts and cultural organizations during this time and continue to be the most reliable, accurate source for all things arts, culture, and entertainment in the Joplin area! Through it all we have hope. We look forward to bringing more live, quality entertainment to the Joplin area, safely, in 2021. It is our passion to ensure the growth and prosperity of our creative community. Please help us continue to do so!
We are very fortunate to have an anonymous supporter who believes deeply in our mission and has pledged $5,000 in matching funds for this #GiveOzarks day. This means that $5,000 = $10,000+ with YOUR help!
We reached our goal! Thank you.
With three hours remaining, Connect2Culture has reached our Give Joplin Day goal of $5,000, unlocking the generous match from an anonymous donor! This means that C2C has raised $10,000! We couldn't have done it without the support from those who have given throughout the day. A sincere, heartfelt thank you!
To encourage further generosity, another anonymous donor has offered to match additional donations up to $5,000. So, $10,000 could now equal $20,000! Help us finish Give Joplin Day strong by sharing this news with others!
