If Not Now, When? CAC 2023 Annual Appeal

Dear Friends of CAC,   CAC is committed to promoting the Arabic culture and identity through its programs and events and through providing a home to the Arab American community and a platform to all Arab American artists, writers, intellectuals, musicians, and educators.   Help us sustain and expand our mission of “Building Bridges & Connecting Cultures.”  

In 2023 we fulfilled all our promises.  

  • We spearheaded the First Arab American Book Fair in MA in partnership with our friends at Interlink Publishing
  • CAC 9th Annual Festival was, for the first time, open and free to the public, attracting more than 400 attendees and featuring exhibits, musicians, artists, designers, vendors and restaurants.
  • We established JAZAL, CAC Adults Choir, with 25 members currently preparing for a diverse repertoire and working with world class musicians to present classic and contemporary Arabic music in unique and unprecedented ways.
  • We expanded collaborations with public libraries and academic institutions across MA.
  • Started an after-school program with the Boston Public Schools serving 60 elementary school students teaching them Arabic language and arts.

We achieved all this because of you!

Your trust has been our motive and beacon!  

We are launching our Year-End Campaign with a goal of $50,000 that will help us sustain our mission and continue to build new programs to serve the community!  

Our goals for 2024 are to:

  • Expand CAC after school program to include more public and private school across MA teaching them Arabic language, music, and arts.
  • Allow CAC Choir and Ensemble to travel to schools, libraries, and community centers across MA.
  • Present cultural workshops to the community to build awareness and understanding.
  • Offer continuing education workshops for teachers at private and public schools.
  • Implement a rigorous marketing plan to help CAC expand its community outreach and build strong partnerships.
  • Plan the 10th Annual Festival and bookfair free to the public.
