arte americas subaru crosstrek raffle

A Prepaid 36-month lease on a new Subaru Crosstrek!

Through the generosity of the Whitney Foundation, our cultural center was awarded a $25,000 matching grant to fund our endowment. This means that by meeting a goal of $25,000 in raffle ticket sales, we will be able to deposit twice that amount into our account.  

The hope is that in the future, we will be able to use the interest generated from the endowment to cover operating costs.  Thank you for supporting the sustainability of Arte Américas!
