As a Department of the Town of Newington, basic operating expenses are provided through budget appropriations each year. These funds pay salaries and keep the building warm and well lit. In order to provide an enhanced environment, great programs and services and make this Center as wonderful as it is, the Center raises funds and accepts donations.

In the past these gifts have allowed us to refurnish our TV Lounge, buy new chairs for our auditorium, buy new TVs, throw great parties including quarterly birthday parties, offset program expenses and much more. In the future, we hope to continue to upgrade our furniture, including new tables and chairs to modernize our cafeteria, get new card tables for the auditorium, improve the acoustics of the building, and create new programs.
