Ways to Give


French Cultural Center Renovation

The Center is currently undergoing a complete renovation to expand classroom capacity, modernize our kitchen, install an elevator and improve HVAC, communication and safety systems. Your gift will support these renovations.


Annual Fund

Gifts to our Annual Fund provide essential operating support and help sustain all of our programs throughout the year. Make a gift today and help us to continue to bring the richness and diversity of France and the French-speaking world to New England residents through arts and education programming and our French library.

When you make a gift of appreciated securities you help the French Cultural Center and could receive a double tax benefit – a charitable deduction and avoidance of capital gains tax.

A planned gift through your estate enables you to leave a legacy of continued support that will help to assure the future success of the Center's mission and programs. In many cases, planned gifts can also provide financial/tax benefits for you and your family.


Your Support is Essential….

Dear Friends of the French Cultural Center,

As our world begins to open, we are grateful for your support and count you among the loyal friends of the Center. We made it through a difficult time together, and today our relationship is even more crucial and deeply appreciated.

Amid the pandemic, our Board of Trustees took bold action and closed the Center for essential long-term renovations. This project will be completed in early 2022. More information can be found at fccrenovation.org. We look forward to serving you better in our newly refurbished building.

During this building closure, our staff and teachers will continue to provide you with exceptional classes, programs, and events online and in-person when appropriate. However, your support is critical for the French Cultural Center to sustain our activities and work during this period of financial stress.

Thank you for your generosity and friendship. We look forward to welcoming you au centre in 2022.

The French Cultural Center is a 501(c)3 non-profit organization; your donation is tax-deductible. If you have questions, please contact Joyce Grippen, Director of Development at 508-930-2525.
