The Carbon County Creative Arts Fund

We envision a community in which people of all ages and backgrounds experience the arts. We want Carbon County to be a place where artists are encouraged to hone and share their talents, where traditional and new forms of expression are welcome, and where opportunities for community members to engage with the arts are promoted throughout their lifetimes.

Support the arts in our region, forever.

Your gift to the CCCA Fund will be permanently invested to support arts initiatives in the Carbon County region.

About the Fund

Franz Kline’s “Lehighton” mural

“A man should hear a little music, read a little poetry, and see a fine picture every day of his life, in order that worldy cares may not obliterate the sense of the beautiful which God has implanted in the human soul.” —Johann Wolfgang von Goethe

The Carbon County Creative Arts Fund was established to support all manner of artistic pursuits for the benefit of the Carbon County region, to support nonprofit organizations, charitable programs and individuals pursuing the creative arts, which includes but is not exclusively limited to:  

  • Fine Arts (painting, sculpture, etc.) 
  • Performing Arts 
  • Music 
  • Photography, Film and Graphic Arts  

The CCCA Fund was established for the Foundation initially with a gift from Kathy Lendvay Fallow, whose life was shaped by her exposure to music and the performing arts as a child growing up in Palmerton, PA. Kathy has pledged to help advocate for and grow the Fund for the benefit of Carbon County and will serve on the committee of Fund advisors with other community members and members of the Foundation board or staff. Although endowment will not take place until funds grow to sufficient size, this Fund has been created with the intention to create an endowment and distributions will be made accordingly, to preserve the corpus of the investment forever for the benefit of the community.
