River Gallery School meets challenge grant

BRATTLEBORO — The River Gallery School of Art has raised $15,000 in matching funds to a pledge of $15,000 from the Doune Trust Fund, which brings $30,000 to the Scholarship Campaign Fund.

With half of RGS students receiving scholarship funds, the school says this campaign has increased community accessibility to art-making.

Nearly 100 individuals gave $10 to $1,000, with the campaign closing with a major donation from the Brattleboro law offices of Downs Rachlin Martin.

Other supportive corporate donors with offices in the Brattleboro area include The Richards Group, Clark Mortenson Insurance and Financial Services, and River Valley Credit Union.
