Thank you for your support during this challenging year. We are so grateful for our growing communities, incredible local artists, and new and long-term partners of the Atlantic Highlands Arts Council. As a 100% volunteer non-profit organization with a mission to strengthen community through the arts, we can’t do this work without all of you, so thank you.

As 2020 comes to a close, we look to you for support and input to keep the Atlantic Highlands Arts Council alive. As an all-volunteer non-profit organization, we just can’t do this work without the community. Please consider making a tax-deductible donation this season, and we welcome you to join our events, join a Committee, become a member, or volunteer!
Wishing you good tidings this season,
