Commit to the Future

If your vision for the future of our City includes a rich and vibrant arts community, consider making a gift to The Arts Commission’s endowment fund or a planned gift.  Your commitment to The Arts Commission and its programs assure the future that we desire for our city.

The Arts Commission Endowment Fund

In celebration of its 50th anniversary, on September 19, 2009, The Arts Commission President Elect, James Moore, signed paperwork to establish The Arts Commission Endowment Fund.  The endowment fund is held with the Toledo Community Foundation.

The Edith Franklin Youth Arts Fund

The Edith Franklin Youth Arts Fund was established in December 2010.  A sculptor with a long history of arts activism in our community,  Edith contributed the proceeds from the sale of works from her personal archive to start the fund.  The fund is held at the Toledo Community Foundation.

The Tom & Pat McGlauchlin Youth Arts Fund

In June 2012, Pat McGlauchlin donated the proceeds from the sale of a selection of glass artworks by her late husband, Tom McGlauchlin, to establish the Tom & Pat McGlauchlin Youth Arts Fund.  Held at the Toledo Community Foundation, the fund honors Tom's commitment to training artists of the future.

Donors interested in any of the above funds may contact Jennifer Jarrett, Deputy Director of the The Arts Commission, via email, or phone at (419) 254-2787 ext 1012, for more information.  Donors may also contact a Philanthropic Services Officer at the Toledo Community Foundation directly to make a contribution, www.toledocf.org, (419) 241-5049.
