A 501c3 Nonprofit Organization

Why create an art nonprofit?

A nonprofit affords an organization certain privileges which in turn provides a platform to offer a variety of art focused ventures for the community.


A nonprofit doesn’t mean that money isn’t needed to create the diverse milieu. Funds are essential and are raised in many ways. 

Why support NOCOAC?

Your donations / memberships fuel the        organization which is working towards  a common goal and is giving back to the   community in ways uniquely cultivated by NOCOAC.


All monetary and material donations and/or memberships are tax deductible.
