Ways to Support

Please consider making a gift to help us reach our goals and ensure our ongoing work to build a vibrant community through the arts.

Like many of our colleague organizations, The Umbrella has been critically affected by the economic impact of the Coronavirus. With your support we have been able to remain resilient, support our artists, and find new and innovative ways to provide resources to the youth, adults, and senior adults who rely on our programs.

Thank you!

Consider a Bequest

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.

 

Donate a Securities Gift

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

 

 

 

 

Make a Gift in Honor of Someone Special

The Umbrella will gladly help you target your gift for a specific purpose or as a tribute to a particular person. For help, please contact Katie Cimet at 978.371.0820 x201 or Katie@theumbrellaarts.org
