Your loyal support helps us to sustain and grow this wonderful arts center!
Arts Center East is a nonprofit 501(c)(3) organization that relies on a variety of funding sources, including individual donations from members like you. Your generosity helps to make possible all that we do.
Arts Center East is home to a rich Arts Community. We value our Artist Members, and we invite you to browse their work. We are a place where visual artists from across the state and beyond exhibit and sell their work through juried shows and member exhibits. Unique handmade creations of pottery, jewelry, wood crafts, and other gifts made by local and regional artisans fill our artisan craft fairs. Musical and theatrical performances delight audiences of all ages, and our classrooms are pulsing with the joy of artistic discovery. We are the heart of the arts east of the river.
We are deeply grateful to all who have supported our work and our community. Your generosity makes a big difference in the communities that we serve.

Share a Share
At the suggestion of a Member, Arts Center East has established an account with Edward R. Jones to receive donations through the transfer of appreciated stock. It is easy to do and is a charitable gift under tax law. The donor can transfer one or more shares of stock to Arts Center East. The full value of the stock at time of transfer is available to Arts Center East, and the full value is allowed to the giver as a charitable donation. The great advantage or making a donation this way is that neither the donor nor ACE incurs any tax penalty.
Our first donor of a single share of stock was excited to share their experience and inspire others. Arts Center East is deeply grateful for the generous gift and for the spark the initiated this new giving program!
My dad was the one to purchase this stock in 2004, then valued at $22 a share, and now valued at $1900 at the time of transfer. He apparently picked a winner! This is the greatest WIN-WIN I have experienced, and the most fun is seeing that ONE share can make such a big difference! My dad would have been 100 years old this year, and it would have pleased him to know we could do this.
