Each fall we start raising funds to support anticipated scholarship need for the following summer.

As of feb 5th we’ve raised about $54,300 of the $70,000 we need. We have about $15,700 to go. Help us reach our goal!

"In my view as director the Annual Fund is the most important area of need each year as we raise funds for the upcoming summer.  After the success of our 6th summer in Mt Gretna, the need is strong to rebuild our funds for 2019 to support scholarships, support new programming (www.fourpillars.org), artist spaces, and remain fiscally sound.

I'm most proud that Annual Fund donations help create substantial scholarships year to year that spread goodwill throughout the art community we serve by helping deserving students of all income brackets attend."

-Jay Noble, Executive and Artistic Director
