Ways to Give


Your support is more vital than ever as we weather the uncertainty of the COVID-19 pandemic. With cancelled events and programs during the health crisis, the HV Arts Council relies on the support of our community to help sustain our operations during this difficult time.

Work is underway to continue as many original programs and events as possible adapting them for digital outreach or with innovative social distancing. Plus, we’re also adding a few new ones!

Gifts of any size make a difference, and are fully tax-deductible.
When we can gather again safely in person, your gift will help us continue the mission of “celebrating art in the everyday”. Make a gift today using any major credit card. Thank you!

When making a celebratory gift, please provide the name and address of the person you are celebrating. We will send a personal letter to your honoree telling this special person that you’ve made a thoughtful gift in their name.
