Thank you for taking the time to make a tax-deductible contribution to the Arts Council of Greater Kalamazoo.


In 2020, it was paramount to help artists and arts organizations. We remained open through the pandemic, serving our community’s needs through funding, new grant programs, resource connection, and virtual programming to stay connected. We pledge to continue this work in 2021 until all of our artists are back to work offering amazing creative experiences for our community.

We can only make this kind of impact with your generous support. If you donate now, an anonymous donor will match your gift amount up to $25,000, dollar-for-dollar, now through July 30, 2021. That means up to $50,000 will continue to support all art forms throughout Kalamazoo. We are very proud of the fact that 88% of our budget goes back into the community, supporting programs such as our regranting programs, Art Hop, Art on the Mall, Summertime Live, Grant Programs and Sponsorships.

We appreciate your support and the support of others like you. Your donation ensures that we can reclaim a vibrant and rich arts culture throughout Kalamazoo.
