Together, #WeMakePenland an inspiring place that fosters individual and artistic growth through creative practice and discovery.

Make a gift today and help us reach our inaugural giving day goal of 250 donors in 24 hours. A gift of any size makes a difference! If we reach our goal, we will secure a $5,000 challenge from a group of anonymous donors.
