Why Give to SSA?



Our Record

  • of sustainable, reasonable growth,
  • of careful, proven stewardship of donated and earned funds, and
  • of our proven commitment to high-quality deliverables

all flow in part from the fact that we set priorities in funding programs.

For people interested in supporting the visual arts in action — in supporting the creative energy that sustains communities — the SSA’s priorities currently are:

  • Scholarships for adult community students
  • Scholarships for our youth art programs
  • Artist-in-Residence program
  • Community outreach, through our Mobile Arts Program
  • Cultural Programs in Fine Arts
  • Historic Preservation
