help arrowmont purchase its historic campus
Arrowmont School of Arts and Crafts is in the process of raising money to purchase its 13-acre campus in downtown Gatlinburg. Our goal is to raise $2 million by March 31, 2014. The school is pursuing major donations from corporations, foundations, individuals and municipalities. We also invite you to contribute to this fund. Your gifts—large or small—help us raise money, and also send a message to major donors that Arrowmont is important and worthy of their support. You can earmark your gift to go toward the real estate puchase by entering PURCHASE CAMPUS in the box labeled PURPOSE on our secure, online donation console.
In-kind gifts of equipment, supplies and materials help us keep our studios state-of-the-art. Review the Studio Needs List to see if you can help with an in-kind gift.
Programming has also been made possible in part through a joint agreement with the Tennessee Arts Commission and the National Endowment for the Arts, which believes that a great nation deserves great art.
