Why should I make a donation to the Colorado Springs Fine Arts Center at Colorado College?

During uneasy economic times, people are often less likely to support the arts. But the Fine Arts Center needs your annual fund donation more than ever. We remain committed to providing arts education to children and adults through the Bemis School of Art, offering a full season of outstanding theatre and presenting world-class art exhibitions. This is only possible through the support of individuals like you!

I’m a member – isn’t that enough?
Being a member is a great start, but membership dues make up just 6% of the FAC’s revenue budget. We need your donation to enable us to continue bringing quality programming to Colorado Springs.

Fine Arts Center Foundation

Fine Arts Center Foundation

Originally founded by Marvin Strait while serving on the FAC Board of Trustees, the Foundation has been managed thoughtfully, carefully, and independently since its inception by Thayer Tutt and Marv Strait, along with Gary Loo and Gar Anneler for many of those two+ decades as well. New gifts made to the FAC Foundation will continue to grow this endowment and benefit the programming and operations of the Fine Arts Center for years to come.
