Ways to Support
Special Note: We are so overwhelmed by the outpouring of support for our artists. Thank you to the many of you who have turned your class registrations and ticket purchases into donations. Some of you have also asked how you can help The Umbrella and our artists. If you’d like to support The Umbrella and our artists, please consider making a donation.
Maintaining our unique blend of high-quality arts programming year-after-year relies in large part on our supportive community of generous donors, volunteers, and friends. Your financial, volunteer and in-kind donations support arts education for all ages, environmental outreach, dramatic plays and music productions, visual and interactive exhibitions, resident and visiting studio artists, collaborative makerspaces, and community events—all in a vibrant, regional center for the arts.

WAYS TO SUPPORT THE UMBRELLA
As a non-profit, The Umbrella relies on the generous support of donors like you. Your tax-deductible gift to the Annual Fund allows us to keep bringing you the arts, performances, and programs you expect and enjoy at The Umbrella.

Many companies and employers have matching-gift programs, doubling (or in some cases even tripling) donations their employees make to a favorite charity. The Umbrella, a non-profit arts center, is a 501(c)(3) organization and eligible for matching gift contributions. Download Information Sheet for Employer Donor/Volunteer Matching Programs.
A bequest can be an easy and satisfying gift to make: It costs nothing now but can have enormous future impact. One of The Umbrella’s largest gifts to date was an unexpected bequest that served as the catalyst for our Building the Arts campaign! We welcome bequests of many types and all sizes. Your gift can take the form of:
- a specific amount
- a specific asset, such as property or securities
- a percentage of your estate
A bequest gift may recognize a loved one or an influential artist, benefit a specific activity or program, or serve as a general and important investment in the future of the arts in our community. To learn more about making a bequest, please contact Katie Cimet at 978.371.0820 x201 or Katie@theumbrellaarts.org.
The Umbrella gratefully welcomes gifts of securities, and provides guidelines and contacts to minimize delays and expenses. Download Information Sheet About Donating Securities. For help, please please contact Katie Cimet at 978.371.0820 x201 or Katie@theumbrellaarts.org.
