Donate Now!


The Arts Center of the Capital Region remains a thriving, energetic community resource because of the generous support of friends like you. For nearly fifty years, The Arts Center has allowed artists of all ages, abilities, and backgrounds to create, appreciate, and experience the arts. More than one-third of our annual operating budget comes from charitable donations, so your gift to The Arts Center today is one of the most meaningful ways you can help support the arts.

To continue to offer outstanding programs, remove barriers to access to the arts, and make our full range of offerings affordable for all, we rely on YOUR generosity.

Please make a gift today.


Support The Arts: Program Support and Sponsorship

The Arts Center offers many ways to become involved. Opportunities to support a wide variety of programs and initiatives offer not only the reward of supporting the mission of The Arts Center, but corresponding benefits. Read more about opportunities for support here. Benefits outlined here.

Membership: Basic and Inner Circle levels 

Looking at our impressive facility, world-class studios, compelling classes and events, and our ever-changing art exhibitions, it is easy to assume that The Arts Center can fund operations from paid services alone.  Nothing can be further from the truth.

The fact is, we cover only 50% of our annual expenses with earned income –class tuition, contract services (group classes), and rentals. We have plans to increase our earned income – this is vital to our future stability. But the remaining 50% of our income must be raised through the support of our friends and supporters. It is only through the generosity of our members and higher level donors —you!— that The Arts Center is able to offer affordable arts classes and camps, mount innovative regional contemporary art exhibitions, and enrich the cultural lives of tens of thousands of children and adults throughout our community.

So please, when you join or renew your membership, consider the huge impact The Arts Center has on the Capital Region. And consider becoming a member of the Inner Circle. Thank you, as always, for your support.
