Donor Recognition

The Donor Recognition Program seeks to honor and recognize charitable giving to the College on behalf of alumni and friends.

Recognizing Loyal Donors and their Charitable Gifts 

Through their charitable giving, loyal alumni and friends enhance VCFA’s vital mission of creating a national center for arts education. To honor those who advance VCFA through their contributions, the College has created the following Donor Recognition Programs. 

The Arts Leadership Circle

Donors who give $1000 or more to the Fund for VCFA during a giving year are welcomed into this program. Arts Leadership Circle benefits include recognition in VCFA publications; special invitations to VCFA events with noted artists, writers, and special visiting guests; invitations to donor appreciation events; and a handcrafted membership pin.

The 2008 Circle

This program (in recognition of VCFA’s independence) honors donors who have given to the Fund for VCFA for 5 or more consecutive years. Donors will be recognized in VCFA publications and receive a membership pin at each 5-year anniversary. 

The Legacy Circle

The Legacy Circle pays tribute to donors who have remembered VCFA in their estate planning. Members of the Legacy Circle will also be recognized in VCFA publications and will receive an annual estate-planning newsletter from VCFA’s Institutional Advancement office. 

If you'd like more information about VCFA's Donor Recognition program, please contact Alissa Auerbach, Director of Development at 802-828-8555 or by e-mail.

As a charitable non-profit 501(c) 3 organization, contributions to VCFA are fully tax deductible according to U.S. law.
