A donation to ACRE’s Annual Fund directly supports and sustains our commitment to the emerging artists accepted into ACRE’s Residency Program each year. Help support growing improvements to our facilities, the visiting artist program, the exhibitions program, as well as general scholarships for emerging artists. Contribute to the Annual Fund to support our two core programs: residency and exhibitions.
Make a Gift
Help us provide a pivotal opportunity for emerging artists to develop, present, and grow their creative practices by making a tax-deductible donation today or consider a monthly recurring donation. Donations to our general operations enable ACRE to stay responsive and flexible to the evolving needs of the artists who participate in our programs.
While ACRE’s long-term goal is to make the residency free for all that attend, we currently charge a subsidized fee to our residents. Please consider setting up a one-time or annual scholarship fund for a general scholarship or directed to a specified artist community.
Annual sponsors invest in ACRE’s mission to support emerging and under-represented artists and sustain the life of each program area in meaningful ways. Sponsorships offer marketing and visibility among a growing creative community, unique experiences and VIP access, and other offerings that meet your goals.
DAF Direct makes it easier to support your favorite charities by giving directly from your donor-advised fund.
Generosity comes in many forms. Consider donating gently used equipment and supplies to support ACRE’s residency facilities and Chicago programming. Check out our wishlist or contact our Development Manager to learn more.
