We rely on your support to sustain the Old Art Building. We ask our generous community to support the Leelanau Community Cultural Center through the Annual Fund, Special Events, Endowment, Planned Giving and through Major Gifts that are meaningful to them. We believe all gifts of any amount can make a difference.
There are many ways you can contribute to the Leelanau Community Cultural Center. Every gift, regardless of its size, sends a strong message that you are committed to preserving the Old Art Building, and the countless programs and classes that take place within its walls, for generations to come. You may make a gift in a variety of ways including cash, check, credit card and gifts of stock.
The Annual Fund is the life blood of our operating budget. It enables us to meet a year-round calendar of classes and events with over 600 offerings and presents and fosters over 450 artists, creators, lecturers, musicians, and filmmakers. The Old Art Building hosts nearly 20,000 visitors a year at a cost of $850/day. A gift to the Annual fund enables us to remain a place of generational importance, connection and growth.Donate
