Paying It Forward at VisArts

Did you know that VisArts, like many of you, gives back to the community?

We are extremely grateful for the support we receive from our VisArts community. Individuals, state and county arts councils, private foundations, and local corporations, as well as our dedicated volunteers all play a vital role in helping us to achieve our mission of transforming individuals and communities through visual arts.

VisArts’s culture of giving is central to our mission and is directly linked to making the arts accessible to individuals and other nonprofit organizations. Who are these individuals and organizations?

Meet 6th grade student Luna, who recently received a scholarship to attend our Summer Art Camp. Here’s what Luna’s mother had to say about VisArts:

“Luna's daily life is filled with many medical and rehabilitation obligations. VisArts is a huge respite for her where she gets to express her imagination and just have fun.”

“While earning 'VisArts Bucks' are great, what really keeps me coming back is that I’ve loved getting to know a new community of artists. Making art has become a new part of my life and was a lifeline for me when we moved here from the West Coast a year ago."

Meet Kellee Southern, who serves on the Board of For 3 Sisters, a nonprofit organization founded by fire fighter, Marshall Moneymaker, who lost three sisters to breast cancer. Kellee describes her experience working with VisArts:

“It was such an honor for us to work with VisArts to host such a successful fundraising event. The facility and art supply discounts VisArts offered us allowed our organization to raise funds, celebrate, and bring awareness to the fight against breast cancer.”

We are grateful for our VisArts community’s ongoing support. Please help us to continue to “Pay It Forward” by making a donation today.
