Dear Community Member,
The Port Jefferson-Northern Brookhaven Arts Council exposes nearly 75,000 people to the arts each year. Over 15 communities benefit from the diverse, wide-ranging art forms that can stimulate and inspire our community. From music, visual arts, theatre and more, the Arts Council brings an eclectic variety of culture and education to Long Island’s North Shore. The purpose of the Arts Council is to bring people together, and help our communities learn to experience, appreciate and love the art. The GPJNBAC helps artists, arts and cultural organizations and community groups promote, sustain and enhance all of the arts including painting, sculpture, crafts, design, music, theater, dance, poetry and literature.
This letter is a special invitation to become a member, join our organization and support the arts! The Greater Port Jefferson Northern Brookhaven Arts Council is a registered 501(c)(3) not-for-profit organization and all contributions are tax-deductible. Every cash gift and in-kind donation supports our mission of bringing the arts and the community together.
