The Lincoln Art Center is small rural non-profit organization (501c3) maintaining a large gallery space on Main Street. We are no longer the beneficiaries of any Kansas state funding for the arts, nor the National Endowment for the Arts. Income to cover our operating expenses comes from generous individuals, businesses and organizations through:
We have worked hard to increase the number of fundraisers we do in a year’s time, which has strained our small group of volunteers and expectations of our wonderful long-time Director. We have encountered tougher economic times in the last 5 years, which has made it difficult to continue asking the same generous members and local businesses for donations and memberships repeatedly. We have been fortunate enough to have received several very large generous donations and memorials and we have also received several area project-based grants to help us continue to offer summer art classes and workshops to our area youth. In spite of these generosities, we have lost money 5 years in a row, and this cannot continue if we expect to continue to keep our doors open.
