Investing in Creativity and the Gift of Time
    Renaissance house completely relies upon the generosity of individuals, corporations and foundations to provide creative support to more than 50 artists of every stripe every year. Each artist is given the gift of time at Renaissance House so that they can experiment freely and safely and focus exclusively on their work. Many artists in this environment experience epiphanies and work even more productively than they ever thought possible.
    There are many ways to support artists working at Renaissance house. Gifts may be designated for fellowships or need-based stipends for artists working in specific disciplines. Gifts can underwrite studio construction and other capital projects or help provide public programs, special equipment, landscaping elements and endowment funds. Naming opportunities are available for gifts at various levels. Renaissance House gratefully accepts donations in the form of cash, bequests, property ( such as securities and real estate) and in-kind gifts from individuals, foundations and corporations. Off Center Theatre, Inc. is a non-profit, 501 c 3 corporation which accepts gifts for The Helene Johnson and Dorothy West Foundation For Artists In Need.

    We have received grants and gifts from:   The Ford Foundation, Massachusetts Foundation For The Humanities, The New York Foundation For The Arts, and the Sustainable Arts Foundation.       Scholarships available in 2019:  Work-study scholarships for returning alumni, and Parent/child scholarship for joint residency.
