         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.

Donations may also be made through the SCAHC office using credit card, check or cash. Checks may be mailed to the SCAHC office at 133 Spring Street, Newton NJ 07860

Covid 19 Pandemic

By order of the Governor of the State of New Jersey the SCAHC gallery is closed and workshops cancelled until further notice. We will reopen the gallery as soon as possible when the public health situation is resolved. At that time we will publish a revised schedule of exhibitions and workshops.
