Your Club has steadfastly maintained a high level of programming and exhibitions in the visual arts through wars, depressions, and other national emergencies. From the club’s inception, there has been a spirit and culture of philanthropy among our members. We are continually grateful to those members whose thoughtful generosity has made it possible for the Club to increase both its programs and membership. As we look to the future, we are mindful of ever-increasing expenses, not the least of which is preserving and maintaining our four important and historic buildings. Additional resources to ensure the growth and sustainability of the Providence Art Club will become even more imperative as we go forward.
The Joan Boghossian Birthday Gift Challenge
In 2019 Joan Boghossian set a generous example by celebrating her milestone birthday with a gift to our Club. She also challenged all of us to follow her lead and celebrate our birthdays with a gift to the Club.
Mortgage Retirement Fund
We are already almost halfway toward our goal. Donations to this fund will contribute to retiring the mortgage on our historic buildings.
Providence Art Club Endowment Fund
Our endowment insures that our Club will be here for the future – in good times and in bad. You can give to the endowment today or plan a gift to be added in the future. Help provide a financial foundation and annual stream of income that supports PAC in perpetuity. The Art Club endowment is held at the Rhode Island Foundation.
