Help Contribute to our Annual Fund

Help inspire imaginations and enrich lives! At a time when support for the arts is being frozen by the government and cut from corporate budgets, we are increasingly more dependent on the generosity of donors who realize how important art is to our well being, as individuals and as a community.  Class fees alone do not cover all of our basic expenses let alone allow us to increase our staff of dedicated instructors, bring in more quality exhibits, or respond to all requests for outreach programs that bring art to underserved popultions.

Make a donation in celebration of someone on your holiday gift list.  Take advantage of the tax deduction before the year end.  Whatever your reason for giving, know that your gift is being used in the most fiscally responsible way to help keep the visual arts alive in Park Ridge and its surrounding communities.  Click here to make your contribution today!
