Donations from individuals, families, and businesses inspire our programs and bring to life arts experiences for all ages in our community.

Garden Party 2011

Gifts from the many Friends of ArtHaus open the doors to creative expression which cultivates and enables a vibrant and responsive community. Their donations, which make our work possible, empower all of us to be our best and most expressive selves through acts of creativity which in turn inspire communities to thrive and to be more inclusive, more innovative, and more resilient. Join them and become a Friend of ArtHaus today by clicking the DONATE NOW button in the upper right to give via Paypal. Or download a giving card and mail it in — or better yet, stop in with it as we’d love to thank you in person.

ArtHaus is  a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization and all contributions and donations to ArtHaus are tax deductible. Please consider giving a recurring month gift to support our efforts all year long! You will receive acknowledgment of your tax-deductible gift from ArtHaus whether contributing online or by mail. Thank you!
