Giving

There are many ways you can support Concord Art and its mission of advancing the awareness, knowledge, appreciation and enjoyment of the visual arts. Your gift ensures the Concord Art will continue to provide a place for contemporary art exhibitions, art education and relevant programming, and engage our entire community.

You are why we’ve been Concord’s center for the visual arts for nearly 100 years. Your support sustains us and encourages our continued growth. It is because of you that we present 18 exhibitions annually, maintain an important collection of 20th century artists, offer an unparalleled program of art classes, workshop demonstrations, tours and artist talks, encourage emerging artists and curators, and are the visual arts center for more than 850 members.

Planned Giving

You don’t have to be an artist to create something beautiful.

Create a vibrant community of art and artists by establishing a legacy of support.

Why support Concord Art?

For almost a century, Concord Art’s mission has been to promote contemporary art and artists through exhibitions, education, and dynamic programming. You can enrich our cultural and creative community by including Concord Art in your estate plans. Through a planned gift, you can make a lasting impact helping to ensure that Concord Art continue to promote and sustain art and artists for another hundred years.

How can I create a legacy of support?

You can make a bequest through your will or trust or designate Concord Art as a beneficiary in other estate gifts such as retirement plans, donor-advised funds and life insurance policies.

Bequests

A bequest is a gift made through your will or trust. It may take the form of a specific dollar amount, a percentage of your estate, or be a part of or the entire residual of your estate after other specific bequests have been determined. If you already have a will, you can readily add Concord Art to it with a codicil.

Other Estate Gifts

In addition to your will or trust, you can complete a beneficiary designation form with your financial institution to name Concord Art as a beneficiary of any of these accounts:

  • IRA’s
  • Life insurance policies
  • Donor-advised funds

EWR Legacy Circle

When you notify Concord Art of its inclusion in your estate planning, you will become a member of our EWR Legacy Circle–a welcome group of donors who have supported Concord Art with a truly lifetime gift.

Corporate Sponsorships

The vibrant Concord Center for the Visual Arts will soon celebrate its centennial. Our deep roots in Concord, and a far-reaching reputation for excellent exhibitions and educational programs, make Concord Art a unique organization with broad, regional appeal.

With exhibits like Sight Specific: A Selection of American Perceptual Paintings during the summer of 2014, the photography show that followed, In Search of the Miraculous, Revealing Identity in spring of 2015, Boston Sculptors in Concord during summer 2015, and cut.paper.fold this past autumn, Concord Art has confirmed its reputation as a regional center for the visual arts, attracting nationally recognized artists to curate and exhibit in our historic building in Concord. Our “c-art” collaboration with Middlesex School, Concord Academy and Concord-Carlisle High School provides a one-of-a-kind opportunity for teenagers to work alongside professional artists and curators. Our educational offerings, from art instruction and lectures by acclaimed artists, and European travel for artists to museum tours for art lovers, mean Concord Art engages many people of all ages and many interests in Greater Boston and well beyond.

Concord Center for the Visual Arts has 800 plus members from Concord and surrounding towns as well as the Cape, Maine, New Hampshire and Vermont. In addition, Concord Art’s central location in historic Concord means that we have visitors to our exhibitions and events from around the country and around the world.

Concord Art wants to collaborate with your company. Whether you are a local business or larger corporation, chances are our service areas overlap. Our events, exhibitions and educational programs offer your clients and employees opportunities for networking in the community and personal enrichment, and our historic property offers your company a unique setting for meetings and events. In return, Concord Art needs your business’s financial or in-kind support. Collaboration can take the form of sponsoring events like an exhibition opening or a fundraising event, or goods or services, such as printing, food, software or technical support. In return for sponsorship or other support, Concord Art can offer to your company such benefits as publicity for your company on our website (with link to your website) and print pieces, tickets to events, free tuition for your employees in an art class, and the use of our beautiful historic building for your event or meeting.
