As a member, you are a valued and essential part of an organization at the center of the regional arts scene.

We LOVE our members! Members play a crucial role in our organization’s past, present, and future. Your membership dollars are tax-deductible, and help fulfill our mission of bringing world-class arts experiences and education to the Pikes Peak region.

Support from loyal patrons through membership is essential since we receive almost no public funding, and programming revenue covers only a fraction of the costs. Your membership helps enables us to provide important programs such as school tours, youth theatre programs, and art classes for at-risk youth and our military community.

Do you like to travel? At the Contributing level and above you receive reciprocal membership benefits to other art museums including the Denver Art Museum.

We look forward to having you join us!

In late August 2016, the FAC and Colorado College announced an alliance that signals the re-envisioning and redefining of both organizations’ contributions to the arts in the region. The partnership supports the missions of both organizations while expanding innovative learning opportunities, arts programming and cultural resources for the greater Colorado Springs community. This alliance made the FAC a part of the Colorado College campus and operations. The FAC operations transition to the college as of July of 2017 necessitated changes to our legal structure, which includes a change to our membership bylaws. DETAILS
