A HUGE Thank You!

We at the Newark Arts Alliance are so appreciative of the love the community has given us over the years. These amazing individuals, businesses, and organizations have supported our vision of a strong arts community with monetary donations and event sponsor fees. With these funds we’ve been able to provide access to the arts to all.

Want to become a Donor, Sponsor or Recurring Donor?

Whether you would like to give a one-time annual donation or support our events on a regular basis, we’d love to have you as a contributor. It’s great folks like you that help make this all possible. Please visit our donation page to join the ranks of Newark Arts Alliance donors and sponsors. We are encouraging our supporters to become a recurring donor by pledging a monthly contribution which will help us anticipate our income and meet our monthly expenses.

In Memoriam… There’s times you might wish to acknowledge a special friend or loved one with a donation to the Newark Arts Alliance. We appreciate those gifts and will include them here. A donation has been made “In memory of June Applebaum, loving mother of Michele Tilford” from her “Purrfection” Friends, Christina, Ruth, Rita, Sarah, Alex, Audrey, Judy, Kim and Indigo. Additional donation made by Julia Pierson.

Our Donors (from 2020 to present)


“The Kahlo Club”
New last Fall, we introduced “The Kahlo Club“, which includes all “recurring donors”. We would like to encourage everyone to commit to a monthly donation of $10 or more to contribute to the NAA’s monthly expenses. This will help us focus on our programs more instead of fundraising. Help us have a strong foundation by making a recurring donation. This option is offered on our donation page. It is also possible to set up a recurring payment through your bank. We get 100% of the donation using that method, as there’s no fees. Contributions are always 100% tax-deductible. We will send you a tax receipt at the end of each year unless you need it sooner.

Donor-Levels-GivingWe wish to acknowledge the level of support our generous donors are giving by creating colorful donor levels. Donations in any amount are always appreciated. We will be inviting donors at specific levels to enjoy opportunities such as preview events, shopping discounts, VIP receptions and more. Give what you can, we couldn’t exist without you!
Donors listed below are acknowledged for their combined donations for the year 2020. Additional contributions will be added as received.
