Endowment Fund-Our Future

Why We Need Your Support:

Rome Art And Community Center relies on generous individuals, businesses, and grantors to provide much-needed funding for everyday operations and programming. While many programs (such as Art Classes) pay for themselves via tuition or admission fees, there are still dozens of events and programs that are so important, yet do not generate income. Continuation of a scholarship program that provides tuition assistance and ┬ápossible full scholarships for deserving individuals is completely reliant on grants and donations for funding. Many events are very expensive to hold, yet are part of RACC’s mission- therefore important to provide to the community. Daily operational cost are high, yet not often covered by grants, therefore RACC looks to private funding for this type of support.

Every single donation is so greatly appreciated, from the smallest gift to generous endowments and grants, all serve to keep the beautiful Mansion House, grounds and activities functioning and here for future generations to enjoy.
