Where can you go to be invited to make authentic connections with others, experience tremendous personal growth, and make memories with family and friends all in one location? If you answered West Windsor Arts, then we agree! Our goal is to nurture each individual on their personal journey through the arts. We do this by:
- Welcoming everyone who comes through our doors and being excited to get them started on their creative path.
- Connecting students with Teaching Artists who meet them where they are and help them develop skills, enjoyment, and confidence.
- Offering exhibition opportunities that provide an outlet for a multitude of artistic voices to be heard.
- Collaborating with local service organizations to offer volunteer projects that not only benefit the clients of those organizations, but build empathy and joy that comes from giving.
- Creating artistic events that bring the community together for positive interactions and opportunities to meet their neighbors.
- Doing all we can to keep our community healthy in body, mind, and spirit.
- Sharing a vision of a just and sustainable world through the arts.
There is still so much more to do. We are so fortunate to have the reliable support of an Anonymous Donor who believes in us, and our ability to serve our community. Because we do so much for the community, and because we are in urgent need of funding to support these important programs and initiatives, this donor continues to support our work. We hope you can, too. Your gifts in any amount – $25, $50, $100, or $1000 make an immediate impact. Our artists, students, board, and staff join us in thanking you for your generous partnership and support.
Please send your gift today. We are counting on your support.

GIFTS IN HONOR
You may wish to make a donation in honor of someone who has touched your life.

Your gift will be acknowledged to the person or their family and will be noted in our recognition efforts. Just include the information on your donation form. Make a gift in honor HERE.
Many corporations will match their employee’s contributions to non-profits if you notify them of your donation. By doing this, your company’s generosity can in turn increase the impact of your donation to the West Windsor Arts Council dollar for dollar. Some examples of companies with matching gift programs include Bristol-Myers Squibb, Johnson & Johnson, Merrill Lynch, and the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation. The process is quick and easy. Please contact us with any questions. WWAC’s EIN # is 03-0494648.

On April 23, 2019 Priscilla passed away at home surrounded by loved ones. Our deepest condolences go to her family and wide circle of friends. We are deeply honored to have worked with Priscilla and benefited from her generous spirit. Her daughters, Alisa and Carin Algava wrote a beautiful obituary that truly captures her “see-beauty-everywhere light and love.”
Priscilla taught us the joy that comes from creating and sharing through her encouraging and supportive spirit. We marveled at how painting remained a meditative and healing practice as she battled cancer. Through this initiative, we are able to perpetuate her legacy by launching the Priscilla Snow Algava Scholarship Fund to enable anyone who wishes to pursue art classes at the West Windsor Arts Council to do so despite any financial obstacles. The Priscilla Snow Algava Fund has been established by former student Sherri Andrews. Please make a tax-deductible donation today!
It’s no secret that children come alive when they work in the arts. Imaginations spark and developing minds thrive. In fact, studies show that high engagement in the arts leads to increased academic achievement, better attendance in school, increased motivation, and higher levels of community engagement.
A donation of $400 will support one week of camp, $200 will cover the cost of most classes. But, do feel free to donate any amount and we’ll be sure to put it to good use. Over the past 3 years, donations to our scholarship program have allowed us to provide over 25 classes and camps to 17 people.
Our staff chooses applicants based on financial need, interest in arts participation, and willingness to contribute toward their child’s success in the program. At times, we may also provide lunches, extended day care, or a travel stipend to our scholarship recipients. Many children are referred to us by family members, teachers, or social workers. Please help us continue this valuable program by donating today!
“Thanks for providing a magical and memorable evening. We appreciated the creativity and pretty set up. I’m thankful for WWAC’s excellent work and presence in our community.”
