The Creative Community Fellows have raised over $30,000 for their projects on RocketHub. Pride is an understatement of how we feel making this announcement.

In the final hours of his campaign, Creative Community Fellow, Philip Graulty shared with the cohort of Fellows, “Throughout this entire crowdfunding process, when I felt guilty for asking for help and money, I would think back to what Scott Shigeoka said during our interview for Arts Entrepreneurs:

“…the universe wants to support people that have dreams, that are fulfilling their missions and are alive… especially when they are doing things that serve community.”

It's been the voice that's kept me sane, the little angel on my shoulder that's kept me going. So if you forget everything else, remember to let people in on your dreams! And know that we're all here to help!”

As Kate Jopson reflects on her campaign, she notes, “It was the surprising generosity of so many people that really made this happen! I've never raised money like this before. My heart feels very full right now.”

Several of the campaigns are still live on RocketHub. View all the Creative Community Fellows campaigns »
