STEP UP for Flushing Town Hall


Thank you to our generous family of donors for providing Flushing Town Hall a foundation of strength and endurance. We are grateful beyond measure for the elected officials, donors, members, volunteers, audiences, artists, Board of Directors and Staff who have supported us for over 40 years, in the best and the worst of times.



To Our Community—


First, we wish that you and your loved ones are safe and healthy. Flushing Town Hall joins non-profits and households across the globe in navigating these unprecedented times. There are so many crucial needs at this moment, so why are we asking for your help now? The arts have always brought solace, healing, self-expression, and comfort during difficult times. Though our building is physically closed, our staff and teaching artists are working diligently to support you through online content.


Like others, our financial losses are now staggering. If you have ever enjoyed a program at Flushing Town Hall, or turned to the arts in times of joy or times of sadness, we ask you to please consider a tax-deductible gift today, and Step Up for Flushing Town Hall.




We have lost most of our income, but still have large expenses to cover:

  • Paychecks and health insurance for staff
  • Payments for Teaching Artists to develop new online content
  • Security and maintenance of historic Flushing Town Hall (circa 1862)
  • Unexpected technology costs from working at home during a pandemic
  • Monthly fixed costs, like phone and internet


Gifts from individuals are now critical to keep our mission of providing global arts for a global community alive. We use the word “gift” on purpose—we are painfully aware of everyone’s concerns and constraints, and we share them, both personally and as a non-profit. We recognize the importance of your gift and commitment to Flushing Town Hall, especially at this time. 


Thank you. We wish you and your loved ones well, and look forward to the day when we can welcome you back to Flushing Town Hall in-person.
