Donating to Village Gallery of Arts

Every gift makes a difference in building and sustaining the Village Gallery of Arts in the Portland, Oregon area. We ask that your gift be personally meaningful to you and reflect your commitment to our mission: to promote professional and emerging artists by offering high quality affordable art education to children and adults, and provide a gallery for our members to display and sell their work.

Because our budget consists of a healthy mix of earned revenue as well as the continued generous support of Portland area businesses and residents, 100% of our donations are devoted to the support of our mission.

Read our end-of-year appeal to stay informed and support creativity. Together we will provide the learning environment for Portland area artists.
