Annual Fund

From our range of art classes offered, to the exceptional exhibitions, to our meaningful educational and community outreach programs, the Visual Arts Center (VisArts) plays a unique role in the greater Richmond community.  VisArts provides the opportunity for people of all backgrounds, ages and skill levels to explore their creative spirit.  The VisArts Annual Fund supports the mission, programs and outreach of this wonderful community arts organization.

By making a tax-deductible contribution, you provide vital support for VisArts education and community outreach programs.  These initiatives offer free programs and scholarships to under-served youth and senior citizens whose lives are transformed by involvement in hands on art activities. By giving to the VisArts annual fund, you enrich the lives of people who may not otherwise have access to the art opportunities provided by VisArts.

Additionally, your contribution offsets the cost of maintaining the extensive inventory of studio equipment.

At a time when support for the arts is being cut from educational and corporate budgets, we are increasingly more dependent on the generosity of donors who realize how important art and art education are to our well being, as individuals and as a community.

Share what you love about VisArts with the rest of the community.
