Midway Fund Surpasses Initial $1m Funding Goal

Congratulations to the Midway Fund on raising $1.1 million in the first two weeks!


We have exceeded our initial fundraising goal of $1 million dollars due on February 5th: Within 14 business days we raised $1.1 million. Many people thought this was not possible - it was.

To close the sale we must raise an additional $1.1 million in investments by April 1.

The sale of Midway Studios threatens to destabilize the arts community that has developed in Fort Point if this live/work space is purchased by a developer who does not have a commitment to the arts. To secure the artistic accessibility and integrity of this important building, the Midway resident artists partnered with New Atlantic Development, a Boston real estate developer with a significant track record in arts-related projects, to present a successful bid to purchase Midway Studios and form a non-profit corporation, Midway Artist Collective, Inc, to own and operate the building. If we are successful, this will bring genuine ownership investment to the residents.
