GGCC Arts Alive

Menu

Westmoreland Cultural Trust, like many arts organizations across the country, has been hit hard by the devastating impact of Covid-19. Since our prolonged intermission began in March, more than 100 shows at The Palace Theatre and more than 250 events at Greensburg Garden & Civic Center canceled due to the pandemic. The Trust is fully committed to our mission of continuing the stewardship of the performing arts in the region. But we need your help to make that happen.

 

DONATE TODAY

The pandemic has caused a severe financial burden on Westmoreland Cultural Trust. With an anticipated loss of revenue approaching $500,000 during this intermission, we need your help to sustain us through this difficult time. Your donation today will help ensure that the doors will once again open, and the community can come together to celebrate the arts.

If you remember the thrill you felt when the lights dimmed and the curtain lifted for that special evening at the theatre, or the excitement you felt as you strolled through the alley for the first time taking in the art-filled corridor, or the memories made with loved ones during one of our many free public events, then you know how critical the arts are to a community.

Westmoreland Cultural Trust works to foster art in the region and cultivate local talent through our Incubator for the Arts program and Achievement in the Arts, an initiative that honors 70+ high school seniors each year for their artistic achievement.  In addition, a number of community arts organizations and nonprofits call The Palace Theatre and Greensburg Garden & Civic Center home.

Not only does art enrich the lives of those who experience it, but its economic impact is felt by regional small businesses and restaurants as guests dine, shop, and stay while visiting the area. The Palace Theatre’s economic impact on the region is more than $12 million per year, helping to build a stronger, thriving cultural district and support locally owned small businesses.

The current health crisis has crippled the arts community. Please consider donating any amount so that we may weather the storm and make certain that art continues to be at the heart of our community.

A sincere thank you to the foundations and donors who have already contributed to helping us keep the arts alive.

 

Donations over $50 include a Westmoreland Cultural Trust Membership.

                     

                     

                   

     

 

Tax Benefits for Giving

The CARES Act creates a new above-the-line deduction (universal or non-itemizer deduction that applies to all taxpayers) for total charitable contributions of up to $300. The incentive applies to cash contributions made in 2020 and can be claimed on tax forms next year. The law also lifts the existing cap on annual contributions for those who itemize, raising it from 60 percent of adjusted gross income to 100 percent. For corporations, the law raises the annual limit from 10 percent to 25 percent. Please consult your tax advisor for full details.

Joanne

Everything was perfect. Thanks to you and your staff.

Danielle

Everyone loved the venue; they loved the lanai set up and the outside tables in the shade. The catering kitchen was perfect for us to heat our apps and keep warm. Thank you for all of your tips and suggestions.

John

Everything was perfect!! You and your staff made everything go so smoothly and professionally we could not of asked for a more. Thank you for making our sister’s celebration a truly special day.

Sonia

Thank you for making everything happen so beautifully.  You are amazing.  It would not have looked and gone so wonderfully without all of your help.  Nadia’s Baby Shower on Saturday, October 21, 2017 wouldn’t have looked so fantastic without you.  Guests (Ladies) had such a great time.  And I announced, that without Mrs. Janice Barsoum, this would not have gone so well.  Thank you, Thank you, Thank you from my heart to yours.

Bonnie

I just wanted to share with you that I have heard very good feedback from all on the training held at your facility yesterday.  They mentioned that the site was lovely and that the attendant there was most cordial and helpful.  I’m sure you are in no small way responsible for our positive experience and I wanted to thank you for all you have done to help us succeed in getting this accomplished.

Tony

My family had a great evening.  Your staff was very polite and helpful.  The facility itself was perfect for us.  We could not be happier with evening and the center.  Thank you very much for your help with making a very memorable evening for my family.

Jean

The party was so very nice-- nothing but compliments. I wanted to thank you and the staff as everyone was very accommodating. Even my sister (who was the one that had the critical eye) was happy. She said the space was nice, everything was arranged well, and when we needed an adjustment for the "cookie table" Fred couldn't have been more helpful. She noticed the clean up went smooth and was impressed by the very attentive staff... The day was a delight and I will recommend the venue to ALL my friends.

Patty

It went very well! I am never disappointed with the service you all provide!
Hope all is well with you!

Allison

Our event went very well thank you! I never worry about setup when it's in your hands because you guys are great!

Meghan

EVERYTHING was perfect and we had the most wonderful day!!!! The room was beautiful and set up exactly how I wanted it, and I loved that the windows allowed natural light / a pretty view as well. John (I think that was his name) assisted with any questions I had, and was super helpful! Thank you Jan again so much for all of your assistance and patience! It is very much appreciated!

Sarah

It's a boy!! (I was right!) 🙂
Jordan and I want to thank you so much for your incredible service and facility! We had fun at our gender reveal and everything was perfect!
Thanks again!

April

We were very happy with the facility.  It was spacious and accommodated us perfectly.  Mark was very nice in letting me know if we needed anything, he would be more than happy to help.  Thank you for all of your services and allowing us to rent your facility.  We will be sure to keep you in mind for any upcoming meetings we may have.

John

Loved the room.  Going to be doing more workshops in May or June, would love to come back.

Kay

Thank you so much for helping to make the party a huge success. You do your work very well- I will definitely recommend the Garden Center to people.

Brittany

Not only was I pleased with everything on Saturday, but so were all of the guests. They commented on how beautiful the facility was especially since we had the outdoor patio to add some light and decor. You had a gentleman working on Saturday who was very helpful with everything and very pleasant to work with. I appreciate all that you and your staff did for my sister's baby shower, it turned out better than I ever expected.

Susan

Another wonderful party for the Swans! Thank you and your staff for all being so helpful and friendly!

Michelle

Party was awesome! We had a great day - everything was perfect! Thank you so much! Everyone commented on how beautiful of a party it was.

Jennifer

Thank you! You were a pleasure to work with & everything was perfect & went smoothly.

Roberta

This looks great. Thank you for everything. You have been a great help. This would not be nearly as beautiful or gone as smoothly without your help.
