Ways to Give

We could not do our crucial work without the commitment and financial contributions of our supporters. Gifts to Lyme Academy College of Fine Arts, a 501(c)3 organization, are tax-deductible to the fullest extent of the law. Educating artists is an expensive proposition, one not easily borne by tuition alone. Your donation inspires the creative spirit and makes a difference in the future of visual art. And there are so many ways you can help!

Make a gift of stock.

Make a gift by credit card at 860.598.5175. Call the Development Office to give your credit card information to a member of our development staff.

Mail a check to the College.  Please include your name, and preferred mailing and email addresses so that we can acknowledge your gift promptly. 

Make an impact with a specific gift.
You can choose to direct your gift to a specific purpose such as scholarship, endowment or a special-purpose gift. By designating your gift to scholarship, you help talented students with limited financial resources to realize their dream of an outstanding fine arts education. Gifts can be added to existing endowments, be named after you or a loved one, or memorialize someone special to you or the College. Of course, gifts may be made anonymously. You can direct your gift for specific uses identified by students, faculty and staff to enrich the educational experience at Lyme Academy College.

Make regular gifts, hassle-free
You can make gifts by credit card to Lyme Academy College of Fine Arts on a regular schedule of your choosing. Just call us with your credit card information, which is secured, and we’ll charge your gift according to your instructions. You decide if you do or do not want an end date. We’ll thank you for your gift right away, then send you a letter early in the new calendar year acknowledging all the gifts you’ve made during the previous year.

Pump up your donation with a matching or United Way designated gift
A wonderful way to extend your gift is through a company match. Ask your employer for a matching gift form and include it with your contribution. Lyme Academy College will do the rest. Or you can use the company’s online matching service. We will let you know when we have received the matching gift from your employer.
If you give through the United Way, you can designate Lyme Academy College to receive your pledge. Just write in Lyme Academy College of Fine Arts’ name and address, 84 Lyme Street, Old Lyme, CT 06371.

Attend or sponsor our annual scholarship fund-raising event
The College hosts a fund-raising event every year and 100% of its proceeds benefit scholarships.
