Every gift and grant counts. We wouldn’t be able to operate without the support of our community, businesses, foundations and individuals that want to ensure that the Arts is for Everyone.

With the support of many, River Arts is able to present high-quality arts classes and creative events programming to residents of Lamoille County and beyond year after year.

Giving Opportunities:

Annual Fund River Arts relies on private donations for the majority of our annual operating budget. The support of our Annual Fund is critical to the organization’s long term sustainability.

Joanne Harrison Accessibility Fund In honor of one of our founders, the Joanne Harrison Accessibility Fund provides scholarships for children and families in financial need, making it possible for them to attend summer and youth camps.

Stocks/Securities Gifts of stocks/securities are gratefully received. This is a popular way to give particularly because a gift of appreciated stock or mutual funds is tax deductible at full fair market value at the time of the gift with no capital gains tax. Most donors find this is a way to make a more generous gift than might be possible otherwise.

Memorial and Honorary Gift Sometimes, people choose to make a gift in honor of a loved one who has passed away, or in recognition of a special occasion such as a birthday, wedding, or holiday. When such gifts are made, we will send notification to the recipient or family members telling them of your thoughtful memorial or honorary gift.

Matching Gift Many companies will match employee and retiree contributions to nonprofit organizations like River Arts. You may be able to double the impact of your gift by contacting your company’s human resources department to obtain a matching gift form. Please enclose the appropriate form with your donation. We will do the rest.

Planned Giving   Legacies are personal and powerful, and we are honored when we are part of them. A planned gift to River Arts is one very important and effective way you can help support our mission to enrich the community through the arts for generations to come. Talk to your financial advisor and see how you can accomplish your financial goals, provide for your family, and support organizations you care deeply about. Everyone can benefit from estate planning, regardless of economic status.
