Support Vermont Arts
Why your donation to the Vermont Arts Council matters
We could not do our work without you.
As a non-profit organization we depend on support from the National Endowment for the Arts, the Vermont state legislature, private foundations, corporations, and individuals like you.
Your investment in the Council directly supports vital grassroots arts organizations and public art, 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.
Because of supporters like you, we have been able to respond quickly to both the urgent and long-term needs of Vermont’s arts and culture sector, which was devastated by the pandemic and then by the flooding in 2023.
