Help us meet the challenge!

The Jeffris Family Foundation Challenge Campaign will repair and restore masonry to prevent water damage in four historic structures: the Big Laboratory, the Historic Residence, the Greenhouse, and the Water Tower Pumphouse. It will also support interior rehabiliation of the Big Lab to provide improved classroom space for Tower View Alternative High School and high-quality studios for artists.

The Jeffris Family Foundation has agreed to grant $650,000 to Anderson Center if the Center receives a total of at least $1.3 million in eligible contributions and pledges no later than June 30, 2026. Irrevocable, unconditional, and binding pledges received by Anderson Center on or prior to June 30, 2026 count toward the Jeffris Family Foundation challenge grant so long as they are payable no later than June 30, 2028. Pledges exceeding $487,500 may be subject to additional restrictions.

We would love to talk with you about this campaign, the projects it will fund, and how they support a vibrant future for the Anderson Center and the area. Please email to learn more. You can also download a pledge form or make a contribution below. All contributions made via this form will be restricted to the projects listed above in order to count towards the matching challenge.
