Hey <<First Name>>,
It's Noah Kleiman from Secret Knowledge. Thanks for staying connected with Secret Knowledge in 2016!
We've had quite a year of helping creative people grow their working livelihoods, with new programs (The Whisper Posse, Quarterly Secret Knowledge Exchange Happy Hours) and our 2nd Annual Secret Knowledge Conference (back in November).
Secret Knowledge turned 3 years old. Please trust me when I say, It's been a tough climb the whole way and I couldn't do any of it without the support of individual donors & supporters like you!
After years of grant writing (and quite a pile of rejection letters) Secret Knowledge just got our first ever cash grant award, from Oregon Arts Commission!
This feels like the start of something big for Secret Knowledge and it's mission to help creative people get down to business. I'll keep you posted as the road unfolds ahead in 2017.
A little Secret Knowledge for you:
What I've learned in three years of running Secret Knowledge is, the main thing that stands between very talented people and achieving their dreams is fear. The work involved in being a working artist, musician, or creative entrepreneur is, at times, bone chillingly terrifying. Secret Knowledge is about providing the emotional support creative people need to face their fears. We're in the bravery business.
As we finish out 2016, please consider making an end of year donation to Secret Knowledge. Your support matters to me (the guy who makes Secret Knowledge happen), and, perhaps most importantly, your support helps creative people succeed.
There is still time to make a tax deductible donation in 2016.
You can donate online right now, or mail a check postmarked in 2016 to:
5038 NE 29th
Portland, Oregon 97211
Thanks for your support.
