Give to the Confluence Project

Please join us in this once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to create a place that will contribute to the cultural renaissance of Eau Claire. The Confluence Project represents a true public-private collaboration with funding through state, city and county investments, partnered with philanthropy and new market tax credits.

Philanthropic support is critical to making the arts center possible

As of June 1, 2016, $12.5 million in gifts and pledges had been secured for the Confluence Arts Center.  On June 2, a $1.5 million challenge grant by a group of anonymous donors was announced that will match dollar for dollar any pledges and gifts made by Sept. 30.  The challenge grant and matching funds will bring to nearly $16 million the total gifts and pledges to the arts center project.

Reaching the philanthropy goal for the Confluence Arts Center will complete the overall funding for the public-private project. Other funding sources include:

  • $5 million, city of Eau Claire
  • $3.5 million, Eau Claire County
  • $15 million, state of Wisconsin non-agency grant
  • $3 million, new market tax credits

Pledges and gifts of any amount are greatly appreciated. Donations to the Confluence Project are eligible for corporate or foundation match programs, and are tax-deductible to the extent allowed by law.
