We’ll also be sharing a sneak peek into our plans for the future—you don’t want to miss this!

Green Conversion.  We are beginning the process of green converting our new 22,400 sq foot home into adaptive, affordable community arts incubator spaces that will support thousands of artists and teachers to grow their arts-based businesses. We are striving to reach further into the community and be a positive resource in more peoples’ lives. The result: a more vibrant, creative, and diverse Santa Cruz for generations to come.

And as always, we have fun thank you gifts in appreciation of your support! Take a look.

Also—Yes!—we accept gifts of stock and real estate.

You can help take care of what you love through your
Required Minimum Distribution (RMD).

Using your RMD to make qualified charitable distributions (QCDs) is a tax-free way for people age 70 ½ or older to turn their retirement savings into a meaningful gift. Most IRA plan sponsors will need to be contacted by early in December to ensure timely distribution.
