As we go about the business of supporting three hundred and fifty artists each year, we use many different mechanisms. Artists' contributions to our operations account for only 20 percent of our operating budget and no artist is ever turned away for an inability to make a contribution. Our mission is to allow artists of exceptional talent the freedom to put those talents to work. We understand that committing to a life of art making often means years of financial struggle. VCCA exists as one of the few systems of patronage for the individual artist and we greatly value our friends whose loyalty and financial support allows the artistic process to flourish. These supporters are helping to make art happen. Every gift is important to us. Thank you for believing in the VCCA and for believing that art can make a difference.
