The Eureka Springs Community Center Foundation

The Eureka Springs Community Center is guided by the Eureka Springs Community Center Foundation Board.

The Community Center receives no tax revenue or any other governmental support. The Board works tirelessly to support the Center staff, Center programs, and building maintenance and improvement by raising funds through grants, major gifts, corporate support, private donations, and fundraisers. The Board also promotes the Community Center with their contacts by encouraging both donations and actual participation in the Community Center’s activities. They are dedicated to the continued improvement and development this former school property into a campus to be enjoyed by the whole community.

Fiscal accountability, precise planning, and targeted spending are the focus of the board. This is part of their partnership with the Eureka Springs community. They welcome your suggestions. Just drop them an email at anytime.

The Eureka Springs Community Center Foundation is a 501c3 organization and all donations are tax-deductible.
