Community Arts Center Endowment Fund

A Legacy of Love

Barbara Lockhart (1946-2017) was a brilliant artist and devoted friend of the Arts Center. She believed passionately in the power of the arts to transform lives and invested in educational programs for children in our community. In 2018, the Arts Center received a generous bequest from Barbara’s estate that established the Community Arts Center Endowment Fund. As the Endowment grows, it will provide enduring support for the Arts Center’s important, life-changing programs. 

If you would like to include the Arts Center in your estate plans, please contact Kate Snyder, Director of Development, at 859.236.4054 or 

IRA Distribution Information

Did you know? You can donate your IRA distribution to the Arts Center! Retirees typically need to pay income tax on withdrawals from traditional retirement accounts. However, retirees ages 70 1/2 or older who directly transfer their IRA withdrawals of up to $100,000 to a qualified charity will not owe income tax on the distribution. Talk with your financial advisor about supporting the Arts Center with your required minimum distribution!
