Read FirstWorks’ 2022-23 Annual Report
December 12, 2023

Read our 2022-2023 Annual Report and see what YOU have made possible!

This year the FirstWorks annual report is entirely digital. Why? Exemplifying our EarthWorks initiatives, we are being intentional about the volume of direct mail that we generate. While you can still expect mail from FirstWorks, we are working to reduce our overall environmental impact. Give today to support art that matters.
