Donations from generous individuals, public-spirited foundations and civic-minded businesses allow us to provide arts activities for the enjoyment and enrichment of residents throughout our community and beyond. All gifts are tax-deductible to the full extent of the law.
Recent donations and grants have enabled us to provide art program scholarships to seniors and to talented junior and high school students in need, to underwrite an Expressive Arts program for the Family & Children’s Agency (top photo) and to partner with the Maritime Aquarium on a summer series of environmental-art workshops for 200 Norwalk students.
We are grateful to Fairfield County Community Foundation and to those who donated to RAC during "Giving Day” on March 12. The Rowayton Arts Center received gifts totaling $1,535!
We also appreciate the donations by Artists' Market, Frame 'n' Save, Jerry's Artarama and Rockwell Art & Framing to the 2014 Arts & Ends fundraiser.
THANK YOU to the donors who helped underwrite the installation of a Chair Lift that improves access to the RAC Art School Studio.

Planned gifts are a wonderful way to remember RAC and to create a legacy for future generations. Methods of providing planned gifts include bequests, charitable remainder trusts, charitable lead trusts, life insurance, retirement plans and charitable gift annuities. Consult with your legal and financial advisors to determine the most advantageous ways for you to give under current applicable tax legislation.
Gifts of appreciated stocks and bonds are a favorable way to make charitable gifts. You may receive income tax deductions, avoid capital gains taxes and possibly save on estate taxes. Consult with your broker, legal and financial advisors to determine the proper procedures for making a gift of securities to the Rowayton Arts Center.
Memorial Gifts enable families and friends to remember loved ones in a special way. Currently, memorial gifts underwrite monetary awards to winners in several RAC exhibitions.
Commemorative Stones for RAC’s front patio provide another method of donating to RAC. For only $350, you can remember a loved one, inscribe your favorite saying, celebrate a special occasion or provide a lasting gift for the person who has everything. RAC reserves the right to refuse any inscription deemed inappropriate for public display. Click for details
