Art for Always challenge at LeMoyne getting community response

Recently, LeMoyne Arts announced the creation of a new $250,000 challenge grant in support of its Art for Always capital campaign.

Kelly and Laurie Dozier, owners of Mad Dog Construction, committed to match, dollar for dollar, every donation to Art for Always up to a maximum of $250,000. Community response to this challenge has been swift and substantial.  

In discussing their Challenge Grant gift, Kelly Dozier noted, “The generous community response has been very energizing. LeMoyne is moving forward at warp speed to implement new programs and classes. We have great plans to increase our services to Tallahassee and the arts. So, even with the donations we’ve already received, there is still more match funding left for others to activate and participate in our Renaissance.”

The Art for Always capital campaign will provide the necessary funding to complete not only the acquisition and renovation of the new home for LeMoyne’s education classes, but also the restoration and expansion of LeMoyne’s popular sculpture gardens.

Pamala Doffek, LeMoyne Board member, made the inaugural Art for Always capital campaign gift, followed by a major gift from Persis and Charlie Rockwood.

Then, earlier this year, LeMoyne was awarded a $1 million Arts, Culture and Heritage Grant from Tallahassee’s Community Redevelopment Agency (CRA) towards the purchase of the adjoining property south of the historic Meginnis-Munroe House where LeMoyne’s galleries and administrative offices are located.
