33: Anniversary Find Drive
Join us as we celebrate 33 years helping artists and supporting local arts.

We've been quiet this year, but are working very hard behind the scenes. We are busy with the renovation of 416 W. Main Street and making sure we are ready for our expansion launch in 2020.

While our resources are hard at work building new galleries and studios, we are in need of operating funds this year while we plan and grow.

Please consider a gift during our June fund drive. It is our hope to raise $10,000 during the Member's Exhibition.

For every $33 raised we will be adding a black box component to a sculpture at SVAC- your dollars will literally be making art happen!
(Did you know a donation of $333 breaks down to only about $27 per month, or $6 per week. That's not a lot to help local art and artists in our community!)

SVAC is a 501(c)(3) organization and all donations are tax deductible.

Support the Arts!

Join SVAC:

Members get exhibit rights and first dibs on all our information! Volunteer members also get a discount in the shop. Click here for more information and to pay your dues.


We are funded primarily by memberships, grants, and donations. A gift to Shenandoah Valley Art Center helps us keep the doors open, art on the walls, and community projects moving along.

A gift of any amount is appreciated and all donations are tax exempt because we are an IRS 501(c)(3) corporation.

Give the gift of…. stock!

We have made it very easy for you to gift stock without having to liquidate first! Call SVAC for instructions on how to make stock transfers to the Art Center.

Give a lasting gift with a memorial bequest.

Honor yourself or your favorite art lover with a lasting tribute. Past examples have included capital projects, the library, and naming opportunities for galleries or projects. Please contact Eileen or Piper for more information.


Sponsor an Exhibit to help offset the printing, reception, marketing, and administrative costs for a specific exhibit at SVAC. Your contribution of $250 will help us create a memorable experience for both artists and visitors. You (or your business) will get recognition at the event and on all marketing materials. Please contact Piper to participate. 540-949-7662 or

There are a limited number of sponsorships available for the Fall Foliage Art Show each year. Take advantage of our extensive and diverse advertising campaign as well as the 15,000+ visitors over the weekend! Show the community that your business (or civic group) is serious about culture.

There are opportunities from $250-$5000 each year. Please contact Piper for more information. 540-949-7662 or
