Welcome to Arts BC’s 40th Anniversary Campaign year!

We’re raising $40,000 during our anniversary year. Join other cultural leaders from all around BC who believe in the power of the arts to transform communities.

Your donation to our endowment fund at the Vancouver Foundation will have an amplified effect over the long-term to our continuing mandate to develop the role of arts and culture in building sustainable, vibrant and economically diverse communities in British Columbia.


Pledge forms available by contacting Patricia Huntsman at [email protected] or by calling 1 778-410 5104.

Arts and culture workers— artists, volunteers, administrators—are the living, breathing force in BC’s creative ecology. They are our most precious resource and help generate thriving communities and artistic activity throughout our province.

Arts BC serves as a resource, providing tools, support and everyday learning opportunities to help build our growing sector’s capacity and cultivate arts and culture-led community, tourism and economic vibrancy all around British Columbia.

“That was one of the best conferences I have attended in a while, and all the more remarkable to see so many municipal planners and community leaders in it together. All round, some thoughtful and useful programming and well-organized. Bravo to everyone involved.”
– Lower Mainland Local Government Arts Manager

“I learned so much in this short workshop that will support my work as a new board. Thank you so much!”
– Community Cultural Forum Participant

To support a full creative life for all, we believe everyone should have access to learning and professional development. Not everyone can afford to travel to a conference in another province or complete a Masters in Administration.

Your donation makes it possible for sector-specific learning programs such as our Arts 911-Hotline, our regional Community Cultural Forums, knowledge-sharing platforms and our conference to be accessible to the next generation of arts and culture leaders- both rural and urban.

Your donation to Arts BC’s endowment fund at the Vancouver Foundation helps grow Arts BC’s learning and capacity-building programs for arts and culture workers and organizations around BC. Thank you for your support!


Donations over $25 are eligible for a full tax receipt. Donors not wishing to donate to the Arts BC Endowment Fund can make their contribution through the form below. THANK YOU!
