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


Due to your overwhelming support, we are pleased to announce that we have reached our Annual Appeal goal for 2021 and received the anonymous donor match of an additional $25,000! We are very proud of the fact that 88% of our budget goes back into the community, supporting programs such as our Art Hop, Art on the Mall, Summertime Live, Creative Café, Grant Programs, and Sponsorships.

During these past two years, it has been paramount to help our community artists and arts organizations’ needs through funding, new grant programs, resource connection, and development of new programming methods to stay connected. We pledge to continue this work until all of our artists are back to work offering amazing creative experiences for our community.

Thus, our work is not over yet. We appreciate your continued support and the support of others like you. Your donation ensures that we can reclaim a vibrant and rich arts culture throughout Kalamazoo.
