At The Community Foundation of Southern New Mexico
The purpose of the Las Cruces Arts Association is to foster an environment for artists of all levels, to come together to learn and to share the joy of art and to extend that enjoyment to the greater community.
About the Fund In May 2015, your Board of Directors opened an LCAAArts Fund, through the Community Foundation of Southern New Mexico, with $5,000 dollars from our savings account in hope of sustaining the purpose and goals of the Las Cruces Arts Associations.
It will take a few years but as the LCAAArts Fund grows in dollars we will determine, annually, through a percentage of earnings, what art initiatives we would like to support through scholarship, sponsorships, exhibitions, educational or community programs. The decision will be ours, through a LCAAArts Fund Committee, selected annually by our Board of Directors.
The LCAAArts Fund will grow through contributions by LCAA members, the public and other foundations interested in supporting the visual arts and crafts, and competent investing strategies of the Community Foundation. The Las Cruces Arts Association is a 501c3 organization, established in 1962. This status qualified the LCAA to start a Fund and contributions to the LCAAArts Fund, regardless of size, to be tax deductible.
Consider growing the LCAAArts Fund with a tax deductible…. 1. One-time contribution to support the Fund and get it going 2. Gift of giving with monthly or annual charitable contributions 3. Bequest in your Will, with an amount or percent designated through the Community Foundation of Southern New Mexico to the Las Cruces Arts Association Arts Fund
