Building Support for the Arts
Be a part of something great!!
ARTS & ARTS GROUNDS FUND:
Annual Giving to the Arts
Each year, generous support for the arts from alumni and friends advances our educational and programming excellence and ensures cultural activities and facilities are accessible to our students, university community, Charlottesville and beyond. Through a gift to the Arts & Arts Grounds fund, you can help impact the artistic landscape at the University of Virginia. This fund is administered by the Vice Provost for the Arts and is awarded across schools and units where opportunities and needs are most urgent. To make a gift to the Arts & Arts Grounds Fund, visit arts.virginia.edu/give or contact Mary Kate Delaney Bray, Assistant Director of University Arts Development, at 434-924-1308 or email for more information.

The Council also awards grants up to $10,000 to Arts Departments and Programs across Grounds.

THE ARTS ENDOWMENT:
Sustaining the Future for UVA Arts
in the summer of 2014, the Arts Endowment aims to complete a continuum of
support for the arts at UVA by building a sustainable source of funds to
further enhance the University’s profile as a leader in arts learning, teaching
and service. Donors who make a gift to the Arts Endowment of $100,000 or more
are invited to serve a five-year trustee term to advise the Office of the
Provost on the use and strategic investment of endowment earnings. For more
