Supporting adult and childhood education, economic development and the arts.

Art and Ceil Costa

Art and Ceil Costa share a fondness for education, libraries, open space and public parks. After taking their retirements – Art had worked for decades at an insurance company, and Ceil as a middle school teacher – they began searching for a way to give back to their community.

The Costas established a fund that will provide financial support – in perpetuity – for charitable organizations and programs that focus on childhood and adult learning, economic development and the arts.

They are especially interested in supporting programs that offer adults the opportunity to complete their education while their children are enrolled in Head Start or other similar programs.
