Individual Giving

The Arts Council receives almost half of their annual support from donations from individual members of the community.  Individual giving is a great way to become more engaged and support the arts and culture in your local community.  The arts enrich our lives every day — they enhance our children’s education, promote economic development and improve the quality of life in our community.  Your gift will ensure that Winston-Salem and Forsyth County continues to thrive as a City of Arts and Innovation.

If you would like to make a donation or learn more about donating click here.  If you would like more information about giving please contact Devon MacKAY, Vice President for Development, at or (336) 747-1417.

If you are already a donor (THANK YOU!) and would like to check on the status of your gift or payment contact Katrina Meeks, Director of Database Administration, at or (336) 747-1413.
