The SSAC Board is thrilled to announce the establishment of the Salt Spring Arts Council Endowment Fund managed by the Salt Spring Foundation.

The Fund has been initiated with the generous donation of $10,000 from Janet Halliwell, a former board member, Arts Council alumna, and long-term supporter.  In launching this Fund, Janet commented “I am continually impressed by the dynamism and impact of the SSAC programs.  From Art Jam, through youth oriented programming like Artists in the Class to SSNAP, the SSAC programs provide rich cultural benefit to all parts of our community. At the same time, I am enormously sensitive to the challenge of ensuring the sustainability of these programs through external grants. I encourage others to contribute to this Fund and through it the cultural health of Salt Spring.” Dividends from the Fund will support the programs and operations of the SSAC.

Managed locally by the Salt Spring Foundation, the SSAC Endowment Fund is suitable for donors that would like to make a larger donation, or who would like to leave a legacy.
