You can help make so much good happen at the Art Center – from supplies to classes to popular events. We hope you will commit to the arts by making a generous gift to the Art Center of Burlington today.

Heart to Heart: Community of Caring

We are honored that Great River Health asked us to partner with them on something truly special. Patients staying in the Covid wing need something to brighten up their days. You can help in two ways: create a piece of artwork that can be hung in their rooms or donate money to be used for some art kits and supplies for the patients to use to pass time. Artwork donated can be from all ages and skill levels! Donations (art or money) can be dropped off to the Art Center Monday-Friday 10am-2pm and Saturday 12pm-4pm. This will be an ongoing project.

Leave a lasting legacy for future generations!

By contributing to our Endowment Fund, you help create a permanent legacy of support for art, cultural, and education programs to thrive for years to come in Burlington and surrounding area.

Gifts, no matter the size, are much appreciated and maximized for the greatest benefit to the community we serve. Your contributions make a difference in our organization.

To contribute to our Endowment Fund, make a check out to Community Foundation of Des Moines County and mail to the Art Center of Burlington c/o Marla Vazquez at 301 Jefferson Street, Burlington, Iowa 52601.

Amazon Supply Wishlist

You can also purchase supplies that we need directly from Amazon. To help reduce the costs of operation, we are asking for donations of supplies that we use regularly. All donations to our 501(c)(3) organization help us continue to provide programs to the public and keep the arts alive!

 If you buy on Amazon today, make sure to use and select Art Guild of Burlington as your organization. 

If you are not familiar with the Smile program, Amazon donates 0.5% of your qualifying purchases to an organization of your choosing every quarter. While this is very small percentage, every little bit helps! Make sure to use as using the regular will not send donations for those purchases.
