Individual and Planned Giving

Gifts from individuals keep art in schools, today and tomorrow

At a time when music and art programs are disappearing from schools, the Guild’s Education Programs are more critical than ever. We depend on your support to develop programs that inspire students to make positive choices and become creative thinkers, innovators and conscientious, intelligent and culturally aware adults. Because of your vital contributions, every year more than 50,000 students in nearly 200 schools throughout Northern California receive the benefits of arts education.
