Donations of any size are welcome, and all donations make an impact on our ability to reach our goal. We especially welcome and appreciate the support of artists and members of the greater Washington cultural community. We currently seek support for our Campaign at all levels, with special emphasis on expanding our Leadership Circle of donors at $100,000 and above.


Leadership giving is the foundation of the success of the Campaign for a Creative Future. Donors who wish to give a larger gift may pay in installments over a two, three, four, or five year period. Please indicate your preferred payment schedule on the pledge form, or contact us about custom options or with questions.


You may receive significant tax benefit from donating stocks or other appreciated securities. By transferring ownership to Artist Trust, you avoid capital gains tax, yet are able to claim a deduction for the full amount of the stock’s value at the time of transfer. Per our policy, stocks are immediately sold with the help of our partner Lakeside Advisors, and all funds will directly benefit the Campaign. Stock transfer information: Pershing, LLC; VIA DTC # 0443; FBO: Artist Trust; AC # 4DR250307

From naming Artist Trust in your will to making a charitable gift annuities or a charitable remainder trust, we welcome planned gifts as part of the Campaign. We do ask that you estimate the amount of your gift and share with us the contact name of your estate planning attorney.


Artist Trust's Creative Conversation series brings community leaders and arts luminaries like you together to break bread and bond over their experiences with the arts. These conversations with a purpose also help Artist Trust envision the future of artist support in Washington State as we enter the final phase of the Campaign for a Creative Future.

Hosting a Creative Conversation at your home or other artistic space is easy and impactful. Contact Development Director Kristina Goetz to learn more.



Artist Trust fundraises each year in order to provide its core grants and educational opportunities for artists. As we raise money for our future, it’s also imperative that we raise what we need on an annual basis to continue to support artists now.
