To all who support the mission of our Charbonneau Arts Association:

Only a few days left to double the impact of your end-of-the-year donation. Our 2021 Challenge Match ends Friday night, December 31, 2021 Help us reach our goal!

A few generous supporters have committed to match up to $2000 in new donations to the Charbonneau Arts Association. Of the $2,000 match challenge, so far generous donors have contributed $1,200 to be matched . . . and a huge thank you to those who have participated.

BUT there’s still $800 in new contributions to go!

Any amount helps the students in their art education programs . . . $20, $35, $50, or whatever you can contribute will be used as you intend and very much appreciated.

Since our 2021 Arts Festival has been postponed until next June, our resources to provide donations to the local art programs this year are limited. The good news?  All the funds contributed and matched through this Match Challenge Appeal will go directly to the schools to support student art educational opportunities.

Tax tips:

  • If you itemize your deductions, every dollar donated can be listed on your taxes and help reduce your tax bill.
  • If you use the standard deduction, individuals can take an automatic $300 deduction for their charitable giving and couples can take a $600 deduction if filing jointly.
  • Your donation is a win-win for you and for the Charbonneau Arts Association!

The Charbonneau Arts Association is an all-volunteer organization. Our mission is to provide a venue for the appreciation and promotion of visual arts and other fine arts, create opportunity for local public high school students to exhibit and demonstrate their art. As a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization, all proceeds from our annual Charbonneau Arts fundraising and from our annual Festival of the Arts go directly to the art programs at Wilsonville and Canby High Schools.
