We are a grant- and donor-funded non-profit that serves ten counties of Eastern Oregon, advocating for artists, fostering creative expression, and supporting arts education. We need engaged citizens like you to help us make that happen.
Generosity comes in many forms. We appreciate and honor all donations we receive - large or small - and we see community-oriented giving as a sum greater than its parts. As we work to bring more arts opportunities into the community and support those that are already here, we empower your donation to become the best it can be.
We have several giving campaigns outlined below to give you an idea of what our greatest needs are, though we always accept open donations of any amount. See the bottom of the page to make a one-time or recurring donation that supports our general fund.
All donations to Art Center East are eligible for a tax deduction. We are a 501 (c) 3 non-profit organization headquartered in La Grande, OR.
Pull up a Chair
We'd like to let you in on something we're really excited about. Between now and December 31, 2017, we're running a giving campaign to bring new chairs into our space.
Why new chairs? We want to increase Art Center East's role as a place for community gatherings, conversations, performances, meetings, and gallery talks, but it's hard to hear each other when we're all sitting in squeaky seats! ACE's lovely Carnegie library chairs have lots of use left in them, but not as the seating for large group gatherings. Help us replace them with a set of new, silent (& lighter weight), stackable folding chairs!
Our goal is to purchase a minimum of 32 chairs by the end of the year, to start 2018 off with a (silent) bang! To do that, we need to raise $1,000 by December 31, 2017 - the more money we raise, the more chairs we can buy. Make a donation, then check back for upcoming community events where we can offer you a seat that won't muffle your voice.
