Give Once and Make a Difference!

Give Once

Your one-time gift has a direct impact on artists, curators, students, instructors, campers, volunteers, interns, and partner organizations – and makes it possible for VisArts to offer more than $40,000 in financial assistance to community members in need each year.

Leadership gifts of $1,000 or more will be recognized on our donor wall and on our website.

  • $50 purchases art supplies that help one student develop skills in ceramics, drawing, painting, glass, and more.
  • $75 buys materials to install one contemporary art exhibition that was created and implemented by an emerging curator.
  • $100 allows one student to take an art and wellness class – and join a welcoming, caring community.
  • $250 covers art supplies for one session of CREATE, a free art-making event held in Rockville Town Square.
  • $500 allows two art-loving children from low income families to attend an award-winning summer art camp.
  • $1,000 buys materials that allow a talented emerging artist the opportunity to present a career-launching exhibition.
  • $2,500 enables two artists to participate in VisAbility Art Lab, our supportive studio for emerging adult artists with disabilities.
