LARAC’s mission is to enrich the quality of life in Warren, Washington, and Northern Saratoga Counties by supporting arts and culture through promoting, developing, sponsoring, networking, coordinating, and providing arts activities and services.
Many of LARAC’s services involve assistance to arts and cultural organizations and artists, and to serve as a resource to all in regard to regional arts and culture. For this we need the support of individuals and businesses in the form of donations or the underwriting of special events.

Annual Events Requiring Volunteering & Underwriting

All not-for-profits rely on the generosity of time provided by volunteers. LARAC uses volunteers in many ways:
- Festivals volunteers: for physical set up of the grounds before the event, to welcome and provide information as the venders arrive, informational assistance during the festivals
- Gallery volunteers: to help setup, host, and cleanup
- Computer Volunteers: to input data for the calendar and various databases
Major revenue sources for LARAC include its two annual art festivals, memberships, and sales from LARAC’s Lapham Gallery and LARAC’s Gift Shop. However, as a not-for-profit, LARAC also relies heavily on donations from individuals and businesses and underwriting of special events. Please contact us to see how you can help: 518-798-1144.
