Dear Friend of Castle Hill,
At Truro Center for the Arts, we believe learning through the arts is essential to personal growth and connection—making for a better world. Creating an inclusive, engaging, and supportive arts community is central to everything we do.
During our Annual Fund appeal, we count on you, who we consider to be part of our community and vitally important to Castle Hill’s future. Your Annual Fund contribution provides significant revenue that makes it possible to bring distinctive arts programming to Outer Cape Cod.
Looking back on an extraordinary 2015, we are proud to recognize the diverse faculty in the visual, literary, and culinary arts who came to teach and speak at Castle Hill. Too many to name, but here are just a few: Janet Echelman, Lois Dodd, Dr. Ellen Langer, Robert Pinsky, Mark Bittman, Guy Wolff …WOW!
Our wide-ranging arts programs and celebrations generate revenues that cover some, but not all, of the annual operating costs. Simply put, your year-end support of the Annual Fund matters a great deal—it will sustain Castle Hill’s programs and financial health throughout the year.
Looking forward to our 45th year, Castle Hill is a place full of possibilities never before seen in the history of this organization. We successfully completed the first phase of an ambitious $2.8M Capital Campaign for our new Edgewood Farm campus in Truro, a beautiful 7-acre historic property neighboring the vast Cape Cod National Seashore. It will become home to a unique artist residency program, a new green printmaking studio, and more inspiring opportunities for closer connections among artists, our broader community, and Truro’s spectacular natural landscape. All funds raised to date for the Capital Campaign are set aside exclusively to acquire and renovate the property.
We want to hear your voice and ideas as we shape the opportunities in the coming year. Please stay connected and stay tuned-in to the next phase for building renovations and further program design.
Your Annual Fund contribution for unrestricted general operating support is ever more essential now to keep Castle Hill running strong. As we forge ahead together on this transformative path, we are grateful for your participation, confidence, and shared belief in Castle Hill’s future.
Thank you for being part of our community, and for considering a year-end contribution in support of Truro Center for the Arts at Castle Hill.
Wishing you happy holidays, and a healthy and creative new year!
