Dear Art League Friends, Family, Members, Supporters and Volunteers,

The board and staff of the Art League hope that you and your loved ones are safe and well. Truly, all of us are living in unprecedented times.

If there was ever a time when the Art League needed your support, that time is now. The Covid-19 pandemic has created the most serious financial crisis in the Art League’s history. Not only have we lost revenue from the entire Spring semester, but we’ve been forced to forego gallery rentals, anticipated Art in the Park revenues, and profitable programs for local school systems. Without your support now, the Art League may not recover.

With your support, The Count Me In recovery fund will help replace some of what we’ve lost. With help from you and Federal loan programs we may be able to overcome the enormous financial challenge that we face. It is hard for me to ask for your help at a time when I know the pandemic has affected your life too. The stories of job loss, illness, business failure and loss of life of family and friends are far too many. If you hear the plea and sense of urgency, and it feels right for you to make a donation of any amount to the Count Me In recovery fund, it is greatly appreciated. You can simply donate online, mail your check to the Art League of Long Island, 107 E. Deer Park Road Dix Hills, NY 11746 or email me at and leave your phone number. I will call you back and take your credit card information to process your donation. Make checks payable to Art League of Long Island and in the memo write Count Me In.

Thank you to the Art League board, staff, instructors, volunteers and everyone who holds a special place in their heart for the Art League. Your support is needed now if you believe in a future for the Art League.

My warmest regards and thanks at a time none of us could have imagined.

Charlee M. Miller
Executive Director
