John and Eleanor Mitchell believed that art and knowledge benefited everyone. That’s why they established the Mitchell Foundation to build the Mitchell Museum and become a source of “education and enjoyment” from the arts.
Fifty years and generations of donors later, Cedarhurst continues the tradition of making the arts available to all, enhancing the quality of life for people throughout southern Illinois.
Your donations fuel innovation, inspiration and creativity for lifelong learners, and we are grateful for the contributions that come in many forms. And because Cedarhurst is a registered 501(c)3 organization, all donations are 100% tax deductible.
