Support via Amazon
To provide our classroom with common art supplies, we are making a donation wish list available through Amazon:
Just as you would purchase items for yourself, you may choose an item or items from the list and place them in your Amazon shopping cart. When checking out, there will be an option to ship the items directly to the Guild.
If you are an Amazon Prime member, many purchases will have free shipping. We will be adding and deleting wish list items as needs change.
Please give the list a visit and share it via social media or with your friends.
Did you know that you can select a nonprofit or charity of your choice and have .5% of all Amazon purchases donated to the organization? The Guild is now one of those organizations!
It just takes two steps to contribute via your purchases:
1) To sign up, click on the AmazonSmile image to the right, and select the Hanover Area Arts Guild as your charity.
2) Instead of going to the regular amazon.com address to buy items, go to:
Bookmark that page, and do your shopping from there!
This web address is still Amazon's site, still just as secure, but purchases from this web address will now automatically send the percentage contribution to the Guild's account.
There are no additional costs for the shopper or to the Guild.
Donate to Our Scholarship Fund
The Hanover Area Arts Guild awards a scholarship each year to a graduating high school senior with plans to pursue post-secondary education in an art-related field of study. Students must attend one of the local high schools that partner with us in our annual School Student Exhibit to be eligible for the award. To choose the award winner, one panel of Guild members evaluates applicants’ portfolios, and another group evaluates essays submitted with the application.
The Guild has been awarding an annual scholarship for over 40 years. For the past 25 years, the Guild has been able to give the winner $1000. However, considering the continually increasing costs of tuition and art supplies, the Guild would like to provide more. The Guild believes it is an essential part of our mission to offer support and encouragement to the next generation of artists.
The scholarship is financed largely through donations; we’re hoping that you will help with a contribution to help us continue this important program. Thank you!
Give Local York
The Hanover Area Arts Guild thanks all of our Give Local York (GLY) donors! This county-wide fundraising event to support area nonprofits was a success for the Guild and the county.
When noting the problematic circumstances of dealing with the COVID-19 economic impact on cultural organizations in York County, the Cultural Alliance of York County, and its donors acted quickly to provide funding via Accelerated Operational Grants to several organizations, including the Hanover Area Arts Guild.
Through its financial investment in eight partner organizations that are essential to our cultural core and the funding of arts projects and community programs through our Creative Impact Awards, the Cultural Alliance brings the arts and culture to life in York County. Founded as a United Arts Fund in 1999, the Cultural Alliance's annual campaign has granted $10.2 million cash and more than $2 million in-kind support to grow the arts in our community.
