To make the Paul Nigra Center for Creative Arts a reality, The Lexington Foundation sought to raise $3.5 million dollars to purchase the property, perform renovations and start business operations. This five-year campaign is ongoing; it will end in summer 2019. Every little bit helps us create a center that the entire community can enjoy and be proud of.

We are asking our community for their support in the form of one-time gifts. Donations to this project will help ensure that this arts center continues to grow to fit the community’s needs. While the goal is that the Paul Nigra Center for Creative Arts will eventually become self-sustaining, we will continuously seek donations in order to make capital improvements and expand educational and artistic offerings.
