Help make a home for art in our community!
We have the generous offer to receive the donation of the historic 1880 Schoolhouse and the surroundings gardens (0.81 acres) we use as our home base for exhibits, classes, and community outreach programs. The structure is restored and in excellent condition and is currently used by ASCC year-round. In our sixth year of operation, ASCC serves over 1500 members of our community annually with free and low-cost art programming for all ages.
To receive this gift, we must raise $20,000 for a Capital Fund to ensure the structure has funding for future maintenance needs.
Why a home? Having a permanent home in our historic schoolhouse allows ASCC to bring more art to more people in more ways. To provide this home for art in our community, ASCC must raise a $20,000 Capital Fund to ensure the historic site and surrounding landscape will be maintained.
We welcome your support through both donations and pledges.
- To donate now, please click here and mention “Capital Campaign” in the comments field. Or, mail your check payable to ASCC, with “Capital Campaign” in the memo line.
