Be a DONOR: Show that you care…

As a nonprofit, the Center for Creative Education relies on support from private donors, foundations and grants to finance its mission of bringing art and learning into the lives of all Palm Beach County children. CCE provides most of our educational programming at no cost to schools and after school sites in economically-challenged zip codes. We serve thousands of students a year, but there are many more on the waiting list. You can make it possible for more children to be given the gift of art and education, by contributing any amount – large or small. All gifts are appreciated!

Donation: Donations at specified amounts are designated or you may customize your gifts. Recurring gifts are encouraged.

  • Scholarship Support: Statistically, 52% of our students’ families live in poverty; 75% of our students come from low-income households. Suggested amounts to donate are tied to details of the services provided one student.
  • Endowment Fund: Help us bring learning to life through the arts. This funding level: Protects our organization’s endowed monies for future needs, Provides annual income, depending on market performance, Demonstrates a commitment to long-range financial planning, Provides a way for donors to give complex gifts such as stocks, life insurance or property, Increases investment yield, as agency endowments are pooled with the Community Foundation’s other funds to provide maximum return and lower fees.
  • Naming Opportunities: Recognizing funders with naming opportunities at the Center for Creative Education is our way of thanking you for your generous contribution and honoring your role in bringing this project to life. Through your room dedication, children, parents, staff and members of the public will be permanently reminded of your partnership and contribution that brought this resource to the community.
  • Founder’s Society: Inclusion requires a minimum investment of $2,500 towards annual operating needs in the prior calendar year. The member list is updated on an annual basis. Members will have access to exclusive content from CCE and The Foundations School. Members will have access to a network of like-minded people who support the arts and education in Palm Beach County.
  • Capital Campaign: In August 2022, thanks to the generous support of our donors, CCE opened The Foundations School at the site of the old Lincoln Culinary School in West Palm Beach. We are now looking ahead to Phase Two of our campaign, where we will focus on funding the new Susan and Dom Telesco Arts & Science Center.
