      We retain a small part of the funds         received from the State of New Jersey to cover the administrative cost of the art and history grant programs. This is nowhere near enough to pay for all the services we provide in Sussex County. For these we must rely on the generosity of our members and supporters. Please help! Any contribution is important and appreciated. No amount is too small. Thank you.
