Happiness is not so much in having as sharing. We make a living by what we get, but we make a life by what we give.

The Dunedin Fine Art Center’s current endowment is valued at $1.4 million. This is thanks largely in part to Oskar Elbert’s gift of $1 million, which has greatly helped us move forward toward our ultimate goal of $5 million within the next few years. The Dunedin Fine Art Center is able to carry out its mission thanks to our generous members, donors and patrons within the community. If you wish to make a lasting gift, consider making a gift to the Dunedin Fine Art Center’s endowment.

A History of the Dunedin Fine Art Center’s Endowment Fund:

We are deeply grateful for the individuals who have contributed to the Dunedin Fine Art Center’s endowment fund for the past three decades.

Dr. Hale foresaw the need of an endowment fund and started a campaign known as the Will-A-Thon. He urged everyone to include the Dunedin Fine Art Center in their will for $1,000. Several donations were obtained this way.
