What We Stand For

(the Alcott Motto)
Everything Positive- Nothing Negative”


Alcott Arts Center

Needs Heat!


In 2002 our community bought an antiquated neighborhood school building that did not have a heat source. So, each year, we close the building after our annual Halloween Trunk or Treat event that we host for the kiddies.

Alcott does classes, workshops and other events with partners and schools during the winter while the building is closed.

We close down for the winter, it’s something we have done for fourteen years (Not That We Want To).

Our goal is to have a heating and cooling system ran by solar, geothermal or some other renewable energy source. Allowing us to stay open year round. If we accomplish that we could do so much more for everyone.

That may transpire at some time in the distant future, but till then we produce all we can from April through October. Staying open year round will only be possible if we have people step up and help make our dreams come true.

Everything we have done, has been accomplished through money raised from donations, fundraisers and sponsorships. While it’s never been enough to pay salaries or get us heat, it has provided us the ability to offer the Artistic Opportunities our mission statement mandates, when we are open.  When you look at all of the pictures (we have several years of pictures still to load onto the website) from events pages on this site, just ask yourselves what it takes to accomplish this much without grants.

I’ll tell you; it’s all due to people deciding that no matter what a person’s self value and need to be monetarily compensated is, it can be set aside to help others. It’s all about volunteerism, without the selfless people that help Alcott, nothing would happen. They receive our unending appreciation and some even get rooms named after them.

Please join us in our attempt to get a new Heating source. If you would like to join us in this endeavor Contact us @ alcott@alcottartscenter.org or call 913.233.2787

This could potentially be our new boiler. We are hoping that we will be able to raise the money needed to get it purchased and installed.

Please send your good thoughts and support our way.
