As you might expect, ambitious projects such as ours come with considerable costs, and it’s only through the committed support of donors at a variety of levels that the Pajaro Valley Arts’ exhibition program is possible. Sponsors are recognized in a variety of ways such as: exhibition wall displays, direct mail pieces, and email newsletters which reach our growing membership and list of visitors.

In Honor of / In Memory of

Would you like to dedicate one of our exhibit rooms to someone extraordinary or commemorate a special event? Donate $250 and we will place your dedication including a photo in a place of honor in the gallery for the duration of one exhibit.

Planned Giving

Pajaro Valley Arts has served our community for more than thirty years and we are dedicated to fulfilling our important mission for the benefit of generations to come. Support our commitment to the future. Transform your love of art into a lasting cultural legacy by including PVA in your estate. You can make a charitable bequest to PVA in your will or living trust. It is not necessary to rewrite your current documents—simply add an amendment, called a codicil.

Retirement Plan Assets

If you are over 70, a designation in your IRA or other retirement plan may be a very cost-effective way of making a gift to Pajaro Valley Arts.

Highly Appreciated Stock

Giving appreciated securities is easy—and there are important advantages. If you have held a security for more than 12 months, you may be entitled to a tax deduction (both CA and Federal) at the fair market value and you may avoid capital gains taxes. Please consult your tax advisor for more information about potential tax benefits. To transfer stocks, please contact the PVA office. We will be happy to assist you.

Multi-Year Pledge

Choose the donation amount that fits comfortably into your budget, $100 level, $250 level, $500 level;  and the number of years you wish to make that donation.  The PVA office will bill you annually.  You will be recognized as an ongoing supporter in our newsletters.
