Year End Giving

Annual Giving in Our 25th Anniversary Year

What could be better than celebrating your 25th anniversary?  Brave and hopeful beginnings in 1993 with a promise to care for Ned’s artwork and continue his legacy.  In 2004: a building with gallery space and classrooms.  In 2011, an addition to that building with archival storage for Ned’s originals, more space for educational programs and educator offices.  More optimism in 2014: an amphitheater for live performances under the stars.

All of this made possible by you, our loyal members and donors.  Your membership dues contribute every year to keeping the doors open.  Your generosity to the Annual Giving Program and support of the many capital campaigns over the years have built and continue to sustain the Center.  Ned gave so much to so many in his lifetime by connecting people with nature through his art … what a legacy!  We at the Center want to continue Ned’s work but your help is needed!  Your investment as a stakeholder in our mission—Ned’s mission—is crucial.

Your donation to the 2018 Annual Giving Program will continue Ned’s mission by providing essential operational support including grant applications, utilities and upkeep on buildings and grounds.  Imagine a concert without amplification, galleries without lights or educators without computer access!  In order to continue providing great programs and expanding the Center’s reach, we need your help!

Please consider making a tax-deductible contribution to the Center’s 2018 Annual Giving Program when your letter arrives in the mail.
