Greetings,

 

As Curator and Assistant Director, this organization and community tugged at my heart and filled me with passion, promise, and inspiration. So it is with great honor that I now write to you as the new Director of Helen Day Art Center.

I believe in our Art Center, and I know you do too. That’s why I hope you will join me, our staff, artists, volunteers, and incredible board members to continue our mission of making art accessible to our community.

Your support makes it possible for us to open our gallery doors free of charge. Because of you we repeatedly surprise visitors with the sophistication of our exhibitions. You make it possible for us to offer affordable classes and workshops for both new and experienced students, and extend scholarships ensuring these classes are open to all. Your contribution is essential because tuition does not cover the cost of these classes. You ensure that we retain our passionate, hardworking staff who provide meaningful, powerful public events, classes, and exhibits.

With your support the Art Center truly makes a difference in the lives of our children and in the lives of artists. It makes a difference to art lovers, and those who are experiencing art for the first time. The world is extraordinarily complicated right now. But that is exactly why what we do is so important.

Art is change. Art is hope.
And Art is a core value of this community.
Thank you for your continued support.

Make a Planned Gift to Helen Day Art Center

Though we conduct fund raising campaigns annually, planned giving and legacies are avenues through which you can include Helen Day Art Center in your estate plan.

One of the simplest and most personal forms of making a planned gift is through a will. These gifts can have a critical impact on Helen Day Art Center, aiding with present and future needs. Legacies open the opportunity for leadership level giving for the Center while simultaneously reducing estate taxes.

Planned gifts may grow the endowment or be designated as unrestricted which enables the Center to meet mission and program goals as needed.

We encourage you to consider Helen Day Art Center and the importance of the arts as you plan your estate. Please contact us for a meeting to design the best plan for you and to begin this process. Make a leadership gift for visual arts in Vermont!

Is your donation tax deductible? Yes. HDAC is a registered 501(c)(3) in the United States, donations are 100% tax deductible in the United States.
