Creating a Milestone!     Celebrating Another!


Hello Friends of CCART:

With your help, the Cavallaro & Cleary Visual Art Foundation has achieved an amazing milestone! Since the first CCART scholarship award in 2001, we are proud to announce that over $100,000 in scholarships and art supplies has benefitted nearly 150 students seeking a profession in the visual arts. This is thanks to all of you, who have shared our excitement in nurturing the creativity of these talented young artists.

As we celebrate this tremendous milestone, we also recognize the need to develop new ways to create a solid foundation to continue our work into the future.
• Today we announce the creation of the $20.20 until 2020 Legacy Fund Campaign!!
• We also begin our Annual Scholarship Campaign to fund scholarship awards in 2018.
To ensure that you are part of these special campaigns, please click on both milestone icons above to download the PDFs containing attached vouchers, and mail them in today! Every bit helps!
Our applicants are students, from Delaware, Maryland and Virginia’s Eastern Shore, pursuing education in the visual arts. Our fundraising activities allowed CCART to give $12,000 in scholarships and art supplies to deserving students in 2017. With your support, we hope to at least match this amount going forward.

See the PDFs (link to them above) for information on each campaign and details for submitting the attached donation vouchers. All monetary donations are tax deductible, as we are a 501(c)3 nonprofit organization (EIN#52-2272547).

Thank you so much for your continuing support! Our young, aspiring artists are counting on you once again.
