Lasting Support for the Arts through the Endowment Fund
The Arts Center Endowment Fund asks you to remember The Arts Center in your will or trust, when estate planning. Legacy gifts to The Arts Center’s Endowment Fund ensure that the work of your community arts center continues into the future.
Our Endowment Fund was established to support ongoing operations of The Arts Center. The General Fund can accept donations made as cash, checks, or stock and dividend transfers. Generous donors have established the following funds with designated uses. Everyone can donate any amount to one of these existing funds, or to the General Fund:
- Jim and Ruth Howland Fund for Community Arts Show and Public Art
- Elizabeth Starker Cameron Fund for Youth Education
- Bob and Kitty Bunn support for Arts & Wellness Programs
- The Steele Family Fund for Exhibitions
- Emily Steele Collection Fund for Collection Administration
- Literary Arts Fund for Literary Activities
If you have already designated The Arts Center in your will or trust, THANK YOU. Please let us know so that we may acknowledge you as part of our Legacy Giving Circle — Started in Honor of Elizabeth “Beth” Russell a long-time volunteer who remembered The Arts Center in her will.
If you plan on remembering The Arts Center in your will, we kindly ask you to let us know via a Letter of Intent >>
