SUPPORT THE PENCE
The Art is Essential Legacy Fund
In 2016, a small group of Pence current and previous Board members united to get a new fund off the ground, titled the ‘Art is Essential’ Legacy Fund (AIELF). The group decided to launch a fundraising drive to honor the Pence’s 40th Anniversary. For each year of its service to the community, the Board pledged to raise $10,000, for a total of $400,000.
The AIELF will serve to support education, exhibits, and community outreach for many years to come, and will insure the Pence’s continued success in the future.
As a nonprofit art gallery, the Pence offers over 20,000 people every year the opportunity to make, share, and talk about art. But we can’t do it without you!
Each donor can make a huge impact through their contribution. All donations are fully tax-deductible, and will be recognized on the Pence website, newsletter and other materials. The funds are managed through an investment committee, together with the oversight of a financial broker, so that they grow for the long-term.
To make your pledge, either for one year, or multiple years, contact the Pence Director at (530) 758-3370.
Goal of the Pence Gallery Sponsors Fund
With your support, we can do amazing things! Our sponsors
love the visual arts, and want to make an impact that they
can see locally. Sponsors help cover the costs of coordinating an exhibit, including
shipping, installation, and marketing. Your donation helps
contributes to creating a culturally rich and unique environment.
Serving the Community
The Pence Gallery’s mission is to educate and inspire the community
through offering high caliber art exhibits by local
and regional artists and providing education programs
for all ages. Every year, we offer 18,000 visitors free admission
to encounter amazing exhibits, including more than 1400 children
in our hands-on art programs.
Our business donors receive the added benefit of increased their company’s visibility in the community for their philanthropy, and can reach new audiences through the Pence’s marketing.
All sponsors receive recognition in our member invitations (circulation 600), quarterly newsletter (circulation 600), and the Pence, visited by over 1400 people every month. In addition, sponsors recognition is an important part of the monthly Pence column in the Davis Enterprise newspaper, website and Facebook.
