Guilford Art Center Endowment Fund

In 2016, with the support of a generous matching donor, the Guilford Art Center created a permanent legacy fund for the Guilford Art Center. “We are thrilled to be partnering with the Guilford Foundation to create this endowment, and extremely grateful to the Eder Family Foundation for matching the funds we raise,” says Art Center Executive Director Maureen Belden. “We hope this generosity will inspire others who wish to give in this way, which will help support all of the benefits of the arts in our shoreline community.”

The non-profit Guilford Art Center was established in 1967 to provide opportunities for the public to participate in the arts, experience their cultural and historical diversity, and appreciate the process and product of creative work. Since that time, it has become a vital part of the shoreline community and culture, serving as the most comprehensive art organization, and including the largest exhibition space between New Haven and Old Lyme.

The Guilford Art Center Fund at The Guilford Foundation will provide an annual source of income to the Center. This type of permanent endowment has a special appeal to donors concerned with securing resources to support an organization in perpetuity.
