Local Artists Support Local Charities

For the past eight years, Door County Living has successfully partnered with local artists to create paintings for charity. The philanthropic-themed paintings graced the covers of our Philanthropy Issues and were subsequently auctioned off to raise funds for the Door County charity of the winning bidder’s choice.

We are proud to announce the 2016 cover, “Summer Field,” donated and painted by Egg Harbor artist Ginnie Cappaert, raised $2,500 for the Door County YMCA.

In the last eight years the cover of Door County Living’s Philanthropy Issues have together raised $20,550 for Door County charities. In addition to last year’s beneficiary, other nonprofits to receive funds are the Northern Door YMCA, The Clearing Folk School, Door County Humane Society, HELP of Door County, Door County Maritime Museum, Unity Hospice, Peninsula School of Art, Door County Habitat for Humanity, Door County Community Foundation, Door County Silent Sports Alliance, Door County Land Trust and the Door Community Auditorium.
