Years ago, a cherished and long-time ALLI member lost his beloved wife of many years. He set up a scholarship in her name. The scholarship sent several children with special and or financial needs to the Art League’s Summer Art Adventure Program.

We recently received a letter from a mother, “This is the first program where my daughter felt truly at home with peers of artists who see, think and interpret things in a different way. She absolutely loved the program and her teachers! I never could have afforded to send her to a program like this. My daughter asked if you could send along a painting, she made it for the family to say thank you so much.”

This is just one example of why ALLI is a special place. You know the other reasons.  You’ve been enjoying your classes, whether it be pastel, watercolor, photography, or ceramics; our exhibitions in the Jeanie Tengelsen Gallery; and our special events.

But did you know that the Art League of Long Island is a non-profit 501(c)3 organization? That means that we are a mission-driven community visual arts center. And we are guided not only by fees like tuition and membership, but also by additional financial support from our community members, like you.

Consider a donation this season to the Art League of Long Island. Your contribution will support building improvements, studio repairs, exhibitions, and community events. Your donation will ensure that ALLI will continue to offer more classes which both challenge and inspire you.

We are asking you to join our 2022 Annual Appeal by making your donation, no matter what size, on our website at Donate today and secure ALLI as a visual arts community center where any artist, of any age or ability, is welcomed, excited, and motivated for years to come.

Once again, thank you.
