Sussex County Arts &   Heritage Council

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: 

  • Managing an art gallery where our members can display and sell their art. 
  • Arranging for workshops and classes.
  • Allocating and administering grant funding provided by the State of New Jersey, supporting 21 Sussex County organizations with programs in visual arts, history, music, theater and social welfare

Our Diversity, Equity, & Inclusion Statement

SCAHC supports the development, expression, and preservation of art and culture for all communities, groups, and individuals. We will work to ensure that diverse populations have opportunities to appreciate and value all arts and culture.

What We Do: 

We provide funding for Sussex County Arts, History, and Social programs by distributing grant funds provided by the State of New Jersey to approved nonprofit organizations.

Our Contributions enable:

  • Actors, and others, to perform in plays, variety shows, and musical comedies that theater goers can enjoy.
  • Musicians to play in an orchestra, practice, and perform for local audiences.
  • Music lovers to appreciate concerts and performances that include classical, pop, jazz, choral, acapella, and barber shop.
  • Children and teens to participate in art and musical performances.
  • Everyone to discover our local history through the world of the various local historical societies and county museums.

Although we retain a small sum from the grant funds for expenses incurred administering the Re-Grant Program, it only covers a fraction of our costs. We must make up the difference with the help of our Sponsors and Supporters (check out the full list HERE), contributions by our Members, and our fundraising activities.  Please consider making a donation to help keep our doors open HERE!

You can also support us by participating in all we have to offer!
