WHY GIVE?

Your support can have a direct impact on Vashon Center for the Arts! When you make a gift to VCA, you help enrich the many arts programs that are a hallmark of our center – Arts Education, Visual Arts, Vashon Artists in Schools, Vashon Center for Dance, and the Performing Arts. Through the generosity of so many in our community and beyond, VCA continues to cultivate a life-long love of the arts for children and families alike and nurture a community that values the important role the arts play in our lives.

For more than 50 years Vashon Allied Arts, and now Vashon Center for the Arts, has been a foundation stone for the island’s art and cultural scene. Since that time, the organization has grown in every possible way to become the largest non-profit on Vashon. We are part of the greater Vashon artistic spirit, committed to the idea that Art is a necessary part of our present and our future, where Art, in all forms, leads us back to our humanity, to rediscovering our sense of joy and play, to laying full claim to our inner artist, to healing the world.  

Your gift to the ‘Resilience Fund’ sends a strong and powerful message that you value the importance of the arts in our community. At VCA, we believe in the immense power the arts bring to our daily lives and the joy it provides in lifting our spirits, unveiling potential, and transforming our views of the world.
