These free art classes are funded again this year by Operation RoundUp. Operation RoundUp is an innovative community service fundraising program created by Sangre de Cristo Electric Association by consumers who volunteer to round their monthly bill up to the nearest dollar. Funds from those who round up their bill are pooled for charitable contributions through the ORU program. It is a way for consumers to help fund worthwhile community projects by dispersing funds to organizations and individuals for food, clothing, health needs, and education.
Chaffee Arts is a non-profit organization founded in 1985 to engage and celebrate artists in our community. We serve members throughout Chaffee County and are based in Buena Vista, Colorado.
