The Annual Fund is essential to Wayne Art Center. Annual fund gifts make up the difference between membership and class fees and our actual operating costs. Outreach programs, innovative class offerings, the latest exhibitions, our outstanding faculty, student scholarships and facility upgrades are all made possible because of contributions from our members and friends. Our proud tradition of bringing the arts to all members of the community – regardless of ability to pay – depends on gifts to the Annual Fund.
The arts play an important role in our lives. During these difficult times when the arts are even more integral to our well-being, we are pleased to offer a variety of classes online and welcome back a limited number of students into our studios. However, months of closure because of the COVID-19 pandemic, coupled with additional costs due to COVID, have greatly impacted Wayne Art Center’s operating budget.
As we approach our 90th Anniversary, we know weathering this storm is crucial to the long-term health of our organization. With our current reduced scope of operations, canceled exhibitions and events, increased technology needs and added safety costs, your support is needed more than ever to ensure that we can navigate through these challenging times.
Please give to the Annual fund today! Your tax-deductible contribution – at any level – is greatly appreciated. With your support we are able to fulfill our mission of providing instruction in all phases of the visual and performing arts and affording artists an interdisciplinary venue in which to share, learn, exhibit and perform.
Thank you for your support!
