The Dauphin and District Allied Arts Council, Inc. (DDAAC) is a registered charitable organization, relying on funding from numerous sources for building upkeep and arts-related programs.  There are many future plans, with sourcing of funds always a constant challenge. 

Direct Donations

Direct donations enable us to immediately use the full amount of your gift towards heritage building and arts-related projects and programs at the Watson Art Centre.  You have the opportunity to direct your contribution towards a specific project or program, or you can authorize the DDAAC to use your gift where the DDAAC feels it is most urgently needed.

Our Arts Legacy Fund

In September 2002 the Dauphin and District Allied Arts Council passed a motion to create an Arts Legacy Fund.  This fund is administered by the Dauphin and District Community Foundation (DDCF) as Trustee. Contributions to this fund are invested by the DDCF in a safe manner so as to preserve the original capital and generate income each year.  This income is then paid out to Dauphin and District Allied Arts Council, ensuring the endowment fund will support, promote and enhance the arts and the Watson Arts Centre building for many years to come.  Additional information about the Dauphin & District Community Foundation can be found at
