In September Artists' Television Access in San Francisco celebrates its 30th birthday!

They are currently having a fund-raising campaign: ATA needs a new projector and some improvements. They have launched an Indiegogo campaign to reach their goal of $15,000. This will help them with long term sustainability in terms of facilities and technology. They have a challenge grant from the San Franciscos Voluntary Arts Contribution Fund (VACF) but it requires they raise matching funds to get it.

You can donate here.
