Since 1968, The Hamilton Hill Arts Center has provided free programing to over 10,000 children and Families a year! This annual Gala Brunch is our primary fundraiser allowing us to continue to offer this programing to the community. The longevity of the Hamilton Hill Arts Center is unique to organizations of its nature. Having a place to call home has been crucial to this success. This past year’s building challenges and our current need for repairs have emphasized the importance of a capital campaign dedicated to securing a space we all can call home.
We envision a new building that will serve as a tourist destination, a safe place for Schenectady residents to learn and grow, and a place to celebrate the arts and culture of the African diaspora.
This building will not only house a museum style educational center and gallery, but will provide opportunities for a scaffold educational immersion experience. This building will lead out into our new sculpture garden. This project is our contribution to the revitalization of the Hamilton Hill neighborhood and holds local residents at heart.
Your support is essential, and we ask that you give generously. We invite you to partake in a soulful and fun afternoon of good food, music and dancing, a silent auction, and community visioning.
Since 1968, The Hamilton Hill Arts Center has served as a beacon of hope for at-risk youth. Founded as a drop-in arts center that was inspired by the Black Arts Movement, we ensure the healthy development of youth by promoting their involvement in the visual, performing, and language arts which are rooted in the cultures of the African and African American Diaspora. This event is the major annual fundraiser for the Hamilton Hill Arts Center.
Our challenge is to raise the funds to continue our normal operations while also raising funds for our new home. With this in mind, all sponsorships made at Gold, Platinum or Legacy level will go towards our Capital Campaign.
Please help support this fundraiser and gain more visibility for yourself by joining the Honorary Committee, becoming a sponsor, placing an ad in our program book, or donating a silent auction item. The Hamilton Hill Arts Center brings beauty, culture, and hope to an inner-city neighborhood and entire region. Attached are details on how you can help to keep this valuable resource thriving in our community. Act now! We are counting on you!
