Inner Circle Membership Benefits:
In previous years, we have asked for an annual donation above and beyond your basic membership dues. This dual appeal has been confusing to many people, so we have decided to change it. This year, we are asking all supporters of The Arts Center to join (or rejoin!) us as members. We also ask that you consider joining our new membership club, with its wealth of added benefits: the Inner Circle.
Why We Need Your Support Now
Looking at our impressive facility, world-class studios, compelling classes and events, and our ever-changing art exhibitions, it is easy to assume that The Arts Center can fund operations from paid services alone. Nothing can be further from the truth.
The fact is, we cover only 50% of our annual expenses with earned income –class tuition, contract services (group classes), and rentals. We have plans to increase our earned income – this is vital to our future stability. But the remaining 50% of our income must be raised through the support of our friends and supporters. It is only through the generosity of our members and higher level donors —you!— that The Arts Center is able to offer affordable arts classes and camps, mount innovative regional contemporary art exhibitions, and enrich the cultural lives of tens of thousands of children and adults throughout our community.
So please, when you join or renew your membership, consider the huge impact The Arts Center has on the Capital Region. And consider becoming a member of the Inner Circle. Thank you, as always, for your support.
Sustaining The Arts Center for Generations to Come
The Legacy Circle honors those who have made a planned gift to The Arts Center, including bequests and bequest intentions. Join the Legacy Circle today by remembering The Arts Center in your estate plans. Call Beth Schroeder at 273-0552 x226 for more information. And if you already remembered us in your will, please let us know—we would love to thank you!
