Help us overcome the impact of COVID-19
Would you consider a donation to support our work?
You will help us continue to deliver arts and creative activity to local people, now and in the future when you give to ARC, however little.
Your donation will help us cover the costs of running ARC, our building and the activities we provide for older people, children and young people, and disabled people – and many others. It will support amazing local projects like Stockton Soup and Tees Youth Our Youth with free space for their events, and much, much more.
COVID has put more than three-quarters of our income at risk
We usually manage to generate 80% of our income through ticket sales, hire fees, catering, project grants and other fundraising, all of which has been threatened because of COVID.
As a non-profit we re-invest all of this money so even more people can be creative, and experience brilliant arts activities, and so it’s vital we make up as much of this shortfall as possible.
The remaining 20% of our income comes from Arts Council England and Stockton Borough Council.
We are being careful, but face a difficult future.
During the pandemic, we’re managing our finances very carefully and working hard to offer online some of the activities and live performances we know local people enjoy and value.
But as a charity, we face many challenges to continue our work now and over difficult months ahead.
You can contribute any amount you want to support our work. Every donation helps.
