Our Mission         

We are a registered 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization. Our mission is to foster and promote the artistic and cultural vitality of Sussex County. We do this by: 

  • Providing an art gallery where our members and other artists can display and sell their art
  • Arranging art exhibits in other local galleries and businesses 
  • Supporting 21 Sussex County organizations with programs in visual arts, history, music, theater and social welfare by allocating and administering grant funding provided by the State of New Jersey.

For more information about SCAHC and how our support affects the people of Sussex County see About SCAHC




Donate buttonFacebook linkWe 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.
