Every day, we see the impact donor support has on the lives of our students at the College of Creative Arts. Your support allows our students to pursue their passions and prepare for a career in the arts. The College of Creative Arts also hosts a variety of opportunities for members of our community – and your youngest mountaineers – to experience the transformative power of art.
Why we need your support
Your gift provides essential flexibility to help us grow and meet the demands of today’s rapidly changing academic environment. Opportunities for enrichment are constantly presenting themselves — whether it is a study abroad opportunity, a new instrument or a cutting-edge theatre production, a visiting artist or a particularly special art acquisition. Your support allows us to take advantage of these moments!
We strive to continue bringing direct exposure to the arts to the region. The newly-formed Creativity Academy and Curiosity Series reflect this. This year alone, we will welcome thousands of schoolchildren to our galleries and concert halls to enrich their curriculum and expand their perspectives.
How you can help
We encourage gifts to the following funds, but with the ever-increasing need for philanthropic support, a gift to any department or program is deeply appreciated.
This fund assists us with our greatest needs at any time. Gifts to this fund support student travel, special programs and lectures, art exhibits and upgrades in technology.
Your gifts supporting the student scholarship fund allow us to keep costs low for students, many of whom are first-generation college attendees. In addition, scholarship support allows us to aggressively recruit the best and the brightest, while giving others a chance at higher education that they might not have otherwise.
Pride Practice Facility
We are thrilled to share that we are planning a practice facility for the Pride of West Virginia. While the location of the facility is still unannounced, the Pride is guaranteed to have a modern, permanent facility with climate-controlled storage for instruments and equipment, with a covered pavilion for rehearsals and a turf field. As we look toward the future, your gift to the Pride Practice Facility Fund will support the dreams of our students and celebrate the storied history of the Pride of West Virginia.
Art for all
The Art Museum of WVU hosts several new thought-provoking exhibitions each year and supports programming for thousands of WVU students and faculty, K-12 students and community members. Help support their mission to provide education, opportunity, engagement, culture and creativity for all by giving to the Art Museum Exhibitions Fund.
