SUSTAINING SSAC

It is fitting that the annual event which launched South Shore Art Center should be so pivotal in sustaining us year after year. Festival proceeds represent one-third of our annual revenues. Cancelling it drastically hurts our bottom line as well as our spirits.
 
Like so many organizations—and like so many of you personally—South Shore Art Center is really struggling in this new economy. We hope that those of you with the means to do so will consider a tax-deductible donation to see us through this crisis.

 

Join us as a member, donate to our operations, or sponsor our online Festival. All of these options will qualify as a charitable gift. All of these options will ensure that we can continue to unite the community with meaningful art experiences even if in non-traditional ways.

 

Your support now can make a huge difference for the SSAC of tomorrow.

 


 

Thank you for being part of South Shore Art Center’s family. We hope each of you are safe and healthy.

 



Thank you all for making the 65th an amazing Festival!
