The Arts & Science Center for Southeast Arkansas Endowment Fund is the foundation upon which The Arts & Science operates. When a gift is made to the Endowment it increases the principal investment thereby growing the fund for the future. Each year, a small percentage of the Endowment helps The Arts & Science Center to fulfill its mission: Serving as a cultural crossroad—engaging, educating, and entertaining through the arts and sciences.
Contributions can be made to the Endowment in any amount although gifts of $25 or more include a free card featuring artwork from The Arts & Science Center’s Permanent Collection. Honorariums and Memorials are two popular ways to give gifts while also helping The Arts & Science Center to fulfill its mission of service to the region. A card is sent to the person or family recognizing your honorarium or memorial.
Named Endowments begin at the $25,000 contribution level. Over the years, Named Endowments have helped to fund the high caliber programming that The Arts & Science Center provides for the community. Named Endowments may also be specified in support of a focus area: Visual Arts, Science, Performing Arts, and Education are popular.
Honorariums are a great way to send greetings for birthdays, anniversaries, holidays, and thank yous—or any special occasion. These gifts give at least three times: 1) honoring your special person; 2) helping The Arts & Science Center to fulfill its mission; and, 3) helping to provide free gallery admission, free school field trips, free hands-on programming, and scholarships.
Memorials are an elegant recognition of caring and also help others for years to come. Gifts of $25 or more include a free card featuring artwork from The Arts & Science Center’s Permanent Collection. This beautiful card will be sent directly to the family acknowledging your gift.
