We gratefully accept donations in any amount, whether for our General Fund or for specific programs.  For these donations, donors receive a receipt identifying their tax-deductible contribution (once we receive 501(c)3 status, tax-deductible status is retroactive to January 15, 2019).

General Fund:  Our LAE General Fund directly supports all aspects of operation throughout the organization, enabling us to meet the needs of artists and patrons in an unlimited range of programs and endeavors. This is where we would like the bulk of donations to go as it gives us the most flexibility with your generous donations.

Specific Programs:  If someone has a specific interest or attachment to any of our courses or programs, they can specify that their donation goes directly to that course or program. 




Corporate Sponsorship is a partnership between a business and LAE to further our mission and provide public recognition of the business’s connection with us.   This is an opportunity for businesses to support our community efforts and show their commitment to celebrating the arts in our area.  Sponsorships brings with it recognition on our website, social media, print advertising as well as recognition within our facility by posting your business logo and including your business in listing our sponsors.
