PAC’s programs and services are made possible, in part, with public funds from the New York State Council on the Arts with the support of Governor Andrew Cuomo and NY State Legislature. Public support is also provided by Putnam County Government. Additional revenue is generated by the Putnam Arts Council through membership, educational and creative programs, fund raising efforts and through donations from the public and private sectors.
