Donate to the Desert Art Center

Support the arts in the Coachella Valley by donating to the Desert Art Center.

Your donations are used to keep our community outreach programs alive and thriving.

Please consider a tax-deductible donation to one or more of our funds:  

Scholarship Fund: Since 1965 the Desert Art Center awards scholarships to graduating seniors from local high schools who plan to pursue an art or design related degree at a college or university of their choice. Since 1979, over 120 students have received close to $50,000 in scholarships.

Middle School Art Program (MSAP): In 2012 the Middle School Art Program was implemented to provide art classes for middle school children (6th, 7th and 8th graders) from the Palm Springs Unified School District. About 80 students every year attend classes in drawing, water color, printmaking and clay working that they would otherwise not enjoy due to public school funding cuts.

Education Fund: In 2014 the DAC began distributing grants totaling over $2000 per year to Palm Spring Unified School District art teachers for supplies, transportation or other items that are not funded by the school district.  

Long Term Planning Fund (General Support Fund): In planning for the future of the Desert Art Center this fund was established in 2017 to set aside funds for the expansion of the DAC's facilities and programs.

The Desert Art Center is a 501(c)3 charitable organization. All donations are tax-deductible to the extent allowed by law.
