Two Ways to Give
The Vermont Arts Council and the Vermont Community Foundation partnered to create an Arts Recovery Fund to deliver fast-tracked support to Vermont’s struggling arts and culture sector and to provide a central place to coordinate philanthropic giving. The Arts Recovery Fund will strengthen the capacity of Vermont’s arts and culture sector to survive the immediate economic impact and to respond creatively and strategically in the months ahead. For donors, the Arts Recovery Fund is an opportunity to join a coordinated effort to facilitate the recovery of Vermont’s creative sector.
Donate to the Arts Recovery Fund on the Community Foundation’s website at vermontcf.org/ArtsRecovery.
We are also accepting direct donations to support our efforts in responding to the devastating and rapidly-evolving impact of the Covid-19 pandemic on the arts sector. Donations given to the Vermont Arts Council for Covid-19 recovery will support grants to artists and arts organizations. Donate for Covid-19 recovery using our secure online donation form.
Contribute to the Vermont Arts Council
Operating support makes our work possible.
Your investment in the Council directly supports grassroots arts organizations, brings creative experiences to more than 7,000 students each year, and sustains the vital creative work of hundreds of artists, performers, and cultural organizations across the state. For example:
- $50 covers the cost of materials for a workshop exploring ways to make Vermont's cultural organizations more accessible to patrons with disabilities
- $100 sets the stage for an outstanding Vermont artist to be recognized in his or her own community
- $250 brings the inspiration of poetry recitation to high school students
- $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 helps to create an evocative work of art to revitalize a Vermont downtown
- $2,500 provides critical support to a community arts organization
- $4,000 grants a Vermont artist time and space to imagine a new sculpture or dance performance
Make a single contribution or set up monthly installments using this secure online form or print and return a paper form. Every dollar advances the Council’s vision of a Vermont where all individuals have access to the arts and creativity in their lives, education, and communities.
Ambassador $5,000 and above
Community Builder $2,500-$4,999
Friend of the Arts up to $49
All donors at the Creator level and above receive the Arts Council's Annual Report and notice of the Governor’s Arts Awards, Spotlight Gallery openings, and other special events.
The Vermont Arts Council is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit corporation. All contributions are tax-deductible to the fullest extent allowed by law and will be acknowledged in the Annual Report.
Planned gifts support the arts for years to come. Deferred giving, trusts, will provisions, retirement plan designations, and insurance policies in which the Council is named as beneficiary will all be considered. 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 and goals.
