Make a Donation

Your donation to the Visual Arts Center helps perpetuate the arts in our community. We do not receive any Federal, State or Local tax revenue and operate mainly on membership dues and donations. Your generous donations help us keep the cost of classes and exhibits low, provide summer camp for youth and teens 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. One-time donations help us break even each and every year. The monies donated by people just like you make the critical difference in a positive or negative fund balance.


The Giving Partner & Annual Giving Challenge

The Community Foundation of Sarasota County’s 2018 Giving Challenge was a great success. In total, the Visual Arts Center raised $17,100. The next Giving Challenge will take place November 30, 2021. We hope you will help us exceed our goals. To learn more about the 2020 Giving Challenge, visit www.GivingPartnerChallenge.org.
