Dynamic leaders, loyal supporters and visionaries describe the Board members of Chandler Cultural Foundation. The Chandler Cultural Foundation is a 501 (c) (3) nonprofit corporation established in 1989 to program and raise funds for the Center’s artistic and outreach programs. Ticket sales and other earned income cover only part of the Center’s programming expenses, which means that the Chandler Cultural Foundation’s fundraising efforts play a vital role in delivering quality arts programs at an affordable cost to the public.

The members of Chandler Cultural Foundation Board are assigned the following tasks:

  1. Reviewing and approving proposed management policies
  2. Reviewing and approving the annual operating budget
  3. Managing a Philanthropic Endowment
  4. Developing and coordinating fundraising programs to support the Center
  5. Reviewing and approving proposed programs and visual art exhibits at the Center

Fundraising Activities

As the fundraising arm of Chandler Center for the Arts, the Foundation raises money to support artistic and educational programs and for an endowment fund that creates long-term sustainability for the Center.

Board members are encouraged to make personal contributions to the endowment fund. This personal gift is not only a show of support for the Center but it also helps the Foundation obtain philanthropic gifts when grants are submitted to local and regional funding sources.
