More Art More Creativity More Experiences More Engagement More Impact

The generosity of donors allows the Morean to reach more people and bring art to all. The Morean is grateful for our Board Member and Philanthropist Karen Riffe for generously seeding the endowment fund, and for committing to match future funds for up to 100K.

A LEGACY OF GIVING

THE RIFFE FAMILY ENDOWMENT FUND IN MEMORY OF DANNY RIFFE:

The Riffe Family Educational Fund was established in 2022 by the Riffe Family in Memory of Danny Riffe. Morean Board Member and Philanthropist, Karen Riffe would like to ensure that future generations continue to have access to the quality art education that the Morean Arts Center offers.

Danny and I grew up in St. Petersburg and loved watching it evolve into this dynamic, beautiful and artistic city.  The Morean has been an important part of our lives over the years; my daughter having attended summer camps for several years as a child, and myself still learning to paint as an adult.  With a strong belief in the power of creativity, my daughter and I are grateful to be able to provide this legacy to benefit the children and aspiring artists in our area through the amazing programs provided at the Morean.  

Contributions to this Endowment Fund are a measurable way of providing lasting, meaningful and impactful tax-deductible support for the Morean Arts Center. Donations are accepted throughout the year and will be matched by the Riffe family for up to $100,000.

Please consider contributing to the endowment fund today.

Thank you for ensuring that the Morean can continue its critical work well into the future.
