For over 20 years, Project X Foundation for Art & Criticism has strived to create a unique and inclusive space for arts criticism and dialogue through its critical arts journal, X-TRA. During the onset of the pandemic—amid leadership changes and an unpredictable future—Project X became uncertain whether it could continue sustaining the journal.

And while Ready, Set, Read! has found success programmatically, its Executive Director Deb Burgin had been seeking ways to find long-term, financial sustainability through a more strategic fundraising approach.
