Support ACA's Annual Fund


Dear Friend of ACA,


Your enthusiasm, participation, and contributions have fueled Arlington Center for the Arts (ACA) through good and bad times, proving our value for more than 30 years – and particularly during the pandemic. In fact, it’s your faith in our commitment to serving this community that activated ACA’s many successes over the last 19-months:

  • we never ceased operations, enabling our staff to access vital resources for recovery that helped us adapt to the changing needs of our community

  • we embraced opportunities to create virtual, hybrid, and in-person classes and events to engage participants of all ages in the ways they felt most comfortable

  • we helped parents navigate disrupted schedules and routines by increasing the quantity and variety of programming for children and teens, including vacation arts camps

  • we provided jobs to teaching artists and young adults

  • we prioritized opportunities for artists to grow and connect through professional development workshops and special events like Arlington Open Studios

Most remarkably, ACA just ended its fiscal year without a deficit. But the recovery grants that gave us a leg up in 2021 won’t be available to us in the coming year. Your support matters more than ever as we work to build capacity and shift the balance from crisis management to sustainability during the year ahead.
ACA has a goal to raise $50,000 during this fall appeal. Can we count on your donation? Please visit to make your tax-deductible contribution today.

Your contribution will ensure that ACA remains vibrant and resilient as we continue to build and celebrate community through events like Arlington Open Studios on Nov 13, 2021 and Arlington Porchfest on Jun 18, 2022. Of course, 2022 will also deliver creative classes for all ages, vacation arts camps for youth and teens, and dynamic exhibitions featuring local artists in our Shaira Ali Gallery.
Thanks again for sharing our belief in the power of the arts to enrich lives and provide solace, hope, and inspiration. Your consideration and support of ACA are truly appreciated.
