Double the Love to Your Favorite Arts Organization With Your Donation

From September 15-December 15, every dollar donated to 40+ eligible arts groups counts twice. Through the Art$WChallenge grant program, private donations made to these cultural organizations in Westchester will be matched by ArtsWestchester with support from the Westchester County Government (up to $5,000 each, while funds are available).

These funds nurture cultural opportunities and experiences in all corners of the County. Several organizations that serve its visitors on limited funds will be able to offer a more robust array of programming. In previous years, families enjoyed a performance by Yonkers Philharmonic, many of whom could not otherwise afford tickets to a symphonic concert. Pelham Art Center was able to more effectively reach underserved communities, including at-risk teens, seniors and people challenged with disabilities. Arts programs that are supported by these donations inspire creativity, self-confidence and conversation throughout Westchester.
