Individual Donations

If you don’t want to make a $1,000 yearly commitment as a member, but would like to make a donation, we’d love to add your name to our annual Directory as a donor.

We will use your donation for one of our events or for one of the performances, programs, and exhibits we’ve chosen for any given year. If you’d like to tie your donation to the arts only, let us know, and we’ll make it happen. Or if you would like the donation to go towards our events, we can do that as well.

To donate go to our Facebook page. You will be listed in our directory with our valued donors.
