Make a Donation

The Visual Arts Center strives to include art in the lives of everyone. Your donation to the Visual Arts Center helps us keep the cost of classes low, purchase art supplies for adult classes, provide Summer Camps for children, host Empty Bowls Charity for homeless and cover regular operating costs required to keep our doors open and free to everyone.

A nonprofit organization cannot usually sustain itself by service fees and dues alone - donations help us get to the break even point each and every year.  The monies donated by people just like you make the critical difference in a positive or negative fund balance.

We do not receive any Federal, State or Local tax revenue - nor do we plan on asking for it in the future.  We operate mainly on membership dues and donations.  Your contributions help us keep membership dues, class fees, workshop fees, studio time and exhibit fees low.  The Visual Arts Center offers the highest quality and diverse artistic opportunities in the region and remains the most affordable.
