Endowment

Invest in the future

Your gift to the Allied Arts charitable endowment sustains the rich cultural landscape of our community. The investment made with the creation of an Allied Arts endowment provides support that will impact generations—by financially supporting cultural organizations, encouraging participation and attendance, advocating for arts education, and promoting excellence in the arts and arts management. Once you have created an endowment, your gift leaves a legacy.

Considered one of the most advantageous sources of funding, it is our goal to build endowments to a level that would enable us to direct 100% of campaign proceeds to the cultural community.
