Why Become a Member

"We make a living by what we get, but we make a life by what we give." - Winston Churchill

GMAEC members have a profound impact on our community through their support of dynamic visual and performing arts activities. Your support provides the resources necessary to advance programs that encourage intercultural exchange and promote the education and appreciation of the arts.

 

As a non-profit arts organization, we rely on private support for as much as 75% of our annual revenue.  The greatest challenge for the organization is to maintain continuous support for the operation of the Grand Mesa Arts & Events Center.  Annual giving from community members is of utmost importance for the continued existence of the arts center.

Member Benefits*

While your membership has a direct value for you, it is truly priceless to us and the cultural vitality of our community.  We appreciate our members and offer the following benefits for their generosity.

*Benefits apply to total annual donation
