YOU CAN HELP THE ARTS CENTER!
AND WE NEED YOU ! ! !
As you probably know, the Eastport Arts Center is the home of seven constituent arts groups. The EAC is under the overall management of a Board of Directors; beyond that, each constituent has its own governing structure, and is represented on the Board.
The considerable costs of operating and maintaining the EAC are met by an "Our Fair Share" contribution from each constituent body.
Admission fees go into the coffers of each sponsoring constituent. Further funding must be raised through grants. In the world of Arts Administration, all philanthropists recognize that support for artistic presentations will never be adequately met by income from ticket sales. (And our prices are exceptionally low!) The accepted formula now is that admissions generally cover only between one-third and one-half of costs; for us, the remainder must be raised from grants, our spring mailing campaign, special events (like The Follies), and the generosity of a public which recognizes the richness which the arts bring to their lives and to the community.
This is a tough battle! Many of you have been extremely generous, and our appreciation is HUGE.
All it takes to lend a helping hand to the EAC is a phone call, to 853-4650.
Thank you ! ! !
