TriVersity Celebrates Successful ArtsWave Campaign
At TriVersity, we believe local involvement and investment are the true pillars of a prosperous company and community. So each year, we invest in the ArtsWave employee campaign. We’re pleased to announce that 95% of our employees participated this year, which enabled us to exceed our goal for the second year in a row and helped ArtsWave reach a total of $12.2 million in funds raised.
ArtsWave, the Greater Cincinnati region’s local arts agency and the nation’s largest community campaign for the arts, supports more than 100 arts and community organizations that make our region an amazing place to live, and a place TriVersity is proud to call home.
TriVersity CEO Mel Gravely, secretary of the ArtsWave board of trustees, knows first hand the importance of employee campaigns to support ArtsWave.
“Employee campaigns represent more than 50% of ArtsWave’s campaign total and offer a meaningful way for us to invest in our community,” said Gravely. “Our staff looks forward to participating because it enables us to give back and to have some fun at work.”
TriVersity incorporated their ArtsWave campaign kick-off with their quarterly employee meeting to create excitement and share about ArtsWave’s important role in our community. Jamie White, Artswave corporate campaign manager and ArtsPass manager shared an introduction to ArtsWave and the role of the community campaign. Tom Kent, executive director of Elementz, an urban arts center supported by ArtsWave, gave a background on the organization and Elementz rap artist Tafari McDade performed for the group. Employees then divided into teams and created their own art projects by building Cincinnati landmark buildings out of Legos.
In addition to the ArtsWave campaign, TriVersity also seeks out other ways to support the Cincinnati arts community. They recently sponsored Playhouse in the Park’s Buzzer, treating clients and employees to a thought-provoking and darkly funny play.
