Pledges Matched by Nov 1; Soup for Good TO GO; Workshops & Shopping


This Just In!

Pledges & Donations made by November 1 are matched by CT CARES Act COVID Relief Fund for the Arts
This is the time of year when we send our annual appeal, which helps sustain the Center with operating support for all of our programming and facilities. Be on the lookout in your mailbox – either snail or email. Your support means more now than ever as we have been able to reopen our doors and serve our students and visitors. Thank you for helping us continue Creating Art & Community.
Here is an added incentive to give: All donations – even pledges – made before November 1st will help us in our application for a grant through the state of Connecticut CARES Act funding/COVID Relief Fund for the Arts. Matching funds are available for all contributions received from March 10 through November 1. Pledges need to be fulfilled before December 30.
It’s short notice, but this funding just became available from the state, so we wanted to let you know right away! Please help support our work in the following ways:
Thank you for your support and being part of our GAC community!

The Soup for Good To Go event is sold out! However, you can still give much-needed support to the Guilford Art Center and the Community Dining Room through an event donation. Click here!
