Friends of the Hearst

#GivingTuesday

The arts have a tremendous positive impact on community health, especially during difficult times. While it has been challenging to keep art accessible, it has also been rewarding as we’ve stretched our imaginations and abilities to develop creative ways to deliver programming. The community has certainly responded with enthusiasm and generosity! On screen, in person, or at home with special kits—we were grateful for your participation and support in 2021!

As a Friend of the Hearst, you fuel this engine! We count on your support to continue offering innovative programming, youth and adult arts enrichment, community arts outreach, and new and exciting exhibitions.

With your financial support in 2022, we will fund arts outreach for community groups with limited access to the Hearst, continue sponsoring the new Hearst internship program, provide funds for repairs to the Steinway D piano, and much more.

Charitable contributions to the Friends of the Hearst directly support programs, projects, and partnerships like these, and expand our ability to produce unique, engaging programming with excellence and frequency. Join us in creating smiles in 2022 through important arts and cultural programming.

Here are a few smiles from 2021 – all made possible through your past support of Friends.

Every contribution is important and greatly appreciated!
