Why Donate to Valley Creates

The Community Foundation is thrilled to invite you and fellow fundholders with an interest in supporting the arts to give to our grant finalists for ValleyCreates.

In January 2019, CFWM brought together over 70 arts organizations from up and down our Valley for a day of dreaming up solutions that could have a meaningful and lasting impact. From there, we funded nine planning grants to collaborations of three or more partners. The projects incorporate values central to ValleyCreates: integrating arts across sectors to address community needs; demonstrating an authentic approach to celebrating diversity and promoting inclusion, and creating shared resources to help strengthen and connect the arts sector.

CFWM has reviewed the implementation proposals for these projects, and have selected six. But we need your help to fill the gap our funding! Beginning December 4th, you’ll have the chance to recommend a grant directly from donor advised fund to help fill the $46,000 gap in funding for these grants.
