Endow the Arts Center

Create Lasting Support for the Arts

To ensure that the work of your community arts center continues into the future, consider creating a legacy gift by remembering The Arts Center in your will or trust when estate planning.

The Arts Center Endowment Fund was established to support programs, special projects and operations of The Arts Center. Over the year dear friends of The Arts Center have made generous gifts for long-term sustainability of our work. Gifts to the Endowment fund are a wonderful way to fulfill your goals for philanthropy that ensure The Arts Center fulfills our mission.
The Endowment Fund is comprised of a General Fund as well as the following funds established by generous legacy donors for designated, restricted uses:
  • Everyone can donate any amount to one of these existing funds or to the General Fund.

The General Fund can accept donations made as cash, checks, or stock and dividend transfers.

Create a New Endowment Fund

With a donation of $20,000 or more, you can open a new restricted or named fund.
