Additional Opportunities



Unlike many organizations with consistent revenue streams, Salina Art Center is charged with raising their entire operating budget each year. That means over $600,000 must be raised annually through donations, memberships ticket sales, grants, sponsorships and foundations. When gifts are made in addition to membership they provide the funding necessary for the Art Center to implement innovative and one of a kind programming including:

  • Bringing thought provoking national and international contemporary art exhibits to Salina

  • Subsidising children’s education programs so every child has an opportunity to participate

  • National and international artists-in-residence at the Warehouse who live, work, and teach in our community

  • SAC Paperworks, a therapeutic and transformative art experience

  • Adult art education programs and programming for special populations

  • Expand opportunities for discussion and engagement around innovative exhibitions and films shown at the Salina Art Center Cinema


SALINA art center, inc. foundation endowment

The Salina Art Center, Inc. Foundation was established to ensure a sustained commitment to contemporary visual art and a cultural development in Salina. The foundation endowment is currently valued at over $1 million.

Gifts to the endowment are typically split between the endowment and current operating needs, but will be handled on a case by case basis, based on the wishes of the donor.
