Make your donation a double in 2016!

We have two exciting opportunities for your gifts to the Box Factory for the Arts. Recently, we were awarded TWO grants -

1. Michigan Council for Arts and Cultural Affairs awarded us $18,000 for operations (new events, programming, concerts, etc) at the Box Factory

2. The Frederick S. Upton Foundation awarded us $4,000 for a classroom upgrade in our Gast Classroom at the Box Factory

Both of these amazing grants are matching funds - which means for every $1 you donate toward either opportunity, you are really giving us $2! Please consider making your tax deductible donation today.

All donations are tax deductible because we are a 501 (c) (3) non-profit.

You can donate any way you want: send in a check to 1101 Broad Street, St. Joseph, MI 49085; call us and we'll take your credit or debit card right over the phone; or donate now with PayPal:

February 20, 6:30–9:30 p.m. - The 2nd Great Box Factory Face Off

Box Factory Face Off

The 2nd Great Box Factory Face Off takes place Saturday, February 20th from 6:30 – 9:30 p.m. Enjoy an evening at the Box Factory, stroll the galleries and watch local portrait artists in action painting and drawing from live models while you mix and mingle enjoying a glass of wine. The event is free and open to the public.

See how each artist interprets the same model differently in their particular style and their way of approaching the subject. The artists will work in the medium of their choice.

“Our first Great Box Factory Face Off was an overwhelming success for both the artists and the public attendees, so I thought that it was time to schedule our second Great Box Factory Face Off. It will be a fun and rewarding evening for all”, said Bob Williams Box Factory artist and Board Member.

The completed paintings will be part of a silent auction during the event. If people see something they would like they can place a bid on it. Artists reserve the right to place a minimum bid on their art.

Donations raised will support two grants the Box Factory were awarded:

· Michigan Council for Arts and Cultural Affairs awarded $18,000 for operations (new events, programming, concerts, etc.) at the Box Factory.

· The Frederick S. Upton Foundation awarded $4,000 for a classroom upgrade in our Gast Classroom at the Box Factory.

Both of these amazing grants are matching funds - which means for every $1 you donate toward either opportunity, you are really giving us $2!
