$100 sets the stage for an outstanding Vermont artist to be recognized in his or her own community
$250 transports a busload of students from the Northeast Kingdom to the Flynn for a top-flight stage performance
$500 places a professional teaching artist in residence in a classroom for two days to help unlock the mystery and mastery of geometry
$1,000 builds community and brings an evocative work of art to a Vermont downtown
$3,000 grants a Vermont artist time and space to create new work

*Members contributing $50 or higher receive the Arts Council's annual report, advance notice of the annual meeting and award events, and discounted fees for the Arts Summit. Members at $50 or higher may also may vote in board elections and on by-laws changes.
All contributions are tax-deductible and will be acknowledged in the annual report.
Other Giving Options
Planned gifts support the arts for years to come. Trusts, will provisions, retirement plan designations, and insurance policies in which the Council is named as beneficiary can all be considered. You can even arrange a deferred gift and still enjoy income from your assets. Council staff, drawing on resources made available by the Vermont Community Foundation, would be happy to work with you and your financial or estate-planning advisors to determine the gift best suited to your needs, desires, and goals.
Give the Gift of the Arts! Purchase a membership for a friend or loved one, who will receive a beautiful artist-designed card acknowledging your gift. Use this secure online form in Acceptiva.
Double Your Contribution
Some companies will double or triple your contribution to the Vermont Arts Council, even if you are a retired employee. To apply for a match of your donation to the Arts Council, contact your employer's human resources office.
