Support

The Salmon River Fine Arts Center relies on contributions of our generous supporters and members to realize our founding mission. Please consider making a one-time gift or choose to help by setting up a recurring monthly gift. We appreciate your support!

We are also very grateful for funding from the John Ben Snow Foundation, the New York State Council on the Arts and CNY Arts, a regional arts council. Many of our programs are made possible with funds from the Decentralization Program, a regrant program of the New York State Council on the Arts with the support of Governor Andrew Cuomo and the New York State Legislature and administered by CNY Arts.
