Pabst Steinmetz Scholarship Fund
Due to COVID-19 and the immense stress it has put on artists, ACA is offering FULL scholarships to all accepted artists. The Board of Trustees and staff feel protecting our core mission is paramount, and are grateful to the Pabst Steinmetz Foundation for allowing us to make this commitment to funding exceptional artists during these times. Supporting this Endowment/Fund allows you the opportunity to take part in our rich cultural legacy of providing the time and space for emerging artists to share their voice, express themselves and collaborate. Your donation to this fund, in any amount, will be matched dollar-for-dollar through 2022. Click here to donate now.
Qualified Charitable Distributions
If you are age 70 ½ and older, you are permitted to donate funds directly from your IRA to the Atlantic Center of the Arts – up to $100,000. There is no income tax assessed on this kind of distribution. You may contact Nancy Lowden Norman to discuss your charitable distribution.
Gifts of Stock
A gift of long-term appreciated stock offers significant tax benefits to the donor. The contribution is credited for the full market value of the securities, and you may deduct this full amount from federal income tax if it is within 30 percent of adjusted gross income. Typically, the donor does not pay capital gains tax on the increased value of the securities. You may contact Nancy Lowden Norman to discuss your gift of stock.
Volusia County License Plate Program
ACA supports the Volusia County License Plate Program! We thank the County’s Mini-Grant program for awarding $5,000 to our archiving project, which preserves video tapes from the artist residencies dating back to 1977. ACA’s unique artistic legacy will be protected and conserved. We encourage you to choose Florida’s “State of the Arts” license plate and help fund important programs in Volusia County. Twenty dollars from each license plate sold comes back to the Cultural Council of Volusia County to be used in various cultural programming. Through this fund, the County offers a Mini-Grant opportunity to qualified non-profit and government entities “to support arts organizations, arts programs, and arts activities” in Volusia County. To buy the arts plate at any time other than your renewal time, simply visit your local tag office, turn in your current plate, and receive your new one on the spot. Learn More
