Match Pentucket Bank donation to ArtSpace

HAVERHILL – Pentucket Bank has pledged a matching grant of $ 50,000 to support the Cogswell ArtSpace project.

As of December 8, the community had raised $ 43,500 in matching donations, with only $ 6,500 to go. December 18 is the last day to match the donation from the bank, however, gifts will still be accepted after this date.

The project has raised $ 2.3 million to renovate the Cogswell School building on South Main Street, but organizers are $ 500,000 away from their goal of $ 2.8 million.

The necessary works include a redesigned heating and air conditioning system, a new fire extinguishing system, new plumbing throughout the 130 year old building, making the building completely accessible to the ADA, including the addition of ‘an elevator, a slate roof renovated to meet historical requirements, and an upgrade of the electrical system.

The goal is to create a space for the arts for the use of the whole community.
