The financial support and endorsement of GUILFORD ART CENTER friends and contributors is the driving force behind the Center’s success as a place to experience and enjoy the world of art.

As a non-profit organization, the Center depends on supplemental outside funding to maintain, expand and enhance its many quality courses and special art enrichment programs and, with this purpose in mind, offers a variety of giving opportunities from which individuals and businesses may choose. Popular possibilities include:

  • Response to our annual appeal, which supports our operations and programs throughout the year. Appeal gifts may be made in the form of cash, check, credit card, or online payment. In the end, it is the results that make the future.
  • Gifts of stock, annuities or funds to be invested in the general endowment fund or scholarship fund, which help secure the Center’s financial base for the future. The Operations and Finance Director will be pleased to provide you with information on possible options.
  • Donations designated for use as a scholarship gift or award in honor of a friend or family member — a personalized way to share and further the experience of art.
  • Sponsorships help underwrite highly visible programs as gallery exhibitions and such annual events as Expo and Artistry, while providing individual or company name recognition. Potential sponsors are invited to contact the Development Director to learn of possible sponsorship packages.

Financial contributions and gifts are, of course, tax deductible and also result in a satisfaction that stems from knowing that a meaningful difference is being made in people’s lives, thanks to your investment in the Center’s programs and operations.
