Morgan Sean Ryan Memorial Fund

Contributions to the Morgan Sean Ryan Memorial Fund enhance the public programming at the AS220 Performance Space. The Fund enables us to bring well-known national acts and/or offer a free or reduced cover charge for events. Many of the bands we receive requests to book for a special event require guarantees to perform; donations to the Morgan Sean Ryan Memorial Fund enable us to bring these acts to AS220. AS220 is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization. Donations are tax deductible to the extent allowed by law.
To donate to the Morgan Sean Ryan Memorial Fund, below:


New and used arts materials, electronics, equipment, office supplies, and more can often be creatively repurposed at AS220. Call or email the relevant program coordinator to see if they can make use of your tax-deductible in-kind donation.

A planned gift is a charitable contribution made as part of a donor’s overall financial and/or estate planning. The gift can be made during or after one’s lifetime. Some planned gifts can provide life-long income to the donor, while others use estate and tax planning techniques in ways that maximize the gift and/or minimize its impact on the donor’s estate. Whether a donor uses a bequest of cash, securities, real estate, personal property, life insurance, a retirement plan, or some other means, a planned gift can make philanthropic giving very beneficial to both donor and charity.

To learn more about planned giving contact AS220’s Development Director Cynthia Langlykke (email or call 401-831-9327).


Donations to AS220 in memorial of a loved one are a beautiful way to celebrate someone’s life. To notify us of a memorial, please call 401-831-9327.
