Support the future of the Lawrence Arts Center with a lifetime or estate gift to one of three funds held by the Douglas County Community Foundation. To donate to these funds, click the links below.

The Lawrence Arts Center Endowment Fund was created as a charitable advised endowment fund in 2019 with a benevolent planned gift from a long-time Arts Center supporter. This fund provides support to ensure that thousands of people will continue to experience and have access to state-of-the art programs, education, performances, exhibitions, and so much more for years to come.

The Lawrence Arts Center Legacy Fund supports the long-term stability of arts access for all Lawrence community children. Established in 2014 with a gift from Ethel and Raymond F. Rice Foundation and the Marianna and Ross Beach Foundation, the fund supports financial aid and arts programming for children in Head Start, CASA, Boys and Girls Club, and other social service agencies. Your support of this fund allows us to be an Arts Center for all of Lawrence, increases accessibility, and nurtures a love of the arts in children of all ages.

In 2008, the Lawrence Arts Center Board established an endowment in honor of founding director Ann Evans’ dedication and skill in leading the Arts Center for over 30 years. The Ann Evans Endowment supports the annual operations of the Arts Center which is regarded as a regional hub for visual and performing arts, contemporary exhibitions, film, and lectures. It is a community gathering place and will continue providing unique quality arts programs to all, regardless of age, ethnicity, ability, or socio-economic level. With Ann Evans’ commitment to establishing this endowment, and her dream that the Arts Center have a stable funding source to support future programs and growth, private support like yours is essential.
