Art enrichment is no longer a luxury; rather, art enrichment is essential to developing creative thinkers who can solve the problems of tomorrow and develop new ideas and methods to build the future.
Programming provided by the Naples Art Association will continue to enrich our lives and expands our view of the world. Your support ensures future generations the ability to Imagine, Discover and Create.
The Naples Art Association exists to serve the community by showcasing the work of member artists as well as emerging artist from around Southwest Florida and across the country. In addition to an extensive exhibition schedule including two National competitions, the Association presents educational classes and workshops, professional development opportunities, a robust lecture series and other events to promote our members while enhancing our community. We also host three nationally recognized art festivals contributing to the economic growth of Collier County.
The demands of our growing population require additional creative needs in our community. Your donation to the Annual Appeal makes it possible for us to carry on our Mission of promoting the visual arts within our community and enriching the local cultural landscape. Your donation also allows The NAA to develop and implement new programs to engage and inform the general public, reach under-served populations and continue collaborations with Grace Place, David Lawrence Center and Lighthouse of Collier as well as establish new programming to enhance art experiences for all.
Your support makes this possible! Please consider making a fully tax-deductible donation by clicking on the link below.
5 for the Arts
5 for the Arts is a special circle of arts-minded individuals that will be dedicated to providing core financial support to the Naples Art Association as it grants a home and resources to our youth and aging populations, persons with special needs, and local artists. Each generous individual who commits to 5 for the Arts will gift a tax-deductible amount of $500 for each of the next 5 years. Our goal for this important group is 500 donors. By committing to 5 for the Arts, donors will ensure the next era of the Naples Art Association, one that’s set to spark a brighter arts community for all.
We invite you to join the 5 for the Arts movement!
For past donors, you may have noticed a new structure of gifting levels to the Naples Art Association. Our three previous levels – Supporter, Supporter Plus and Ambassador – are being replaced with one new level, Muse Donor, which will be an annual donation of $150. This change is a result of the tremendous growth within the Naples community and the Association's potential impact.
As we are now, poised to grow and reach new heights, we understand how essential it is to transition from a membership base towards a donor base that is truly invested in our ongoing success. We hope you’ll want to be a part of an organization you love and value, one that brings a wealth of arts experiences to you and your community, and one which will – with your help – be able to do so for many years to come.
Fund a Need
Help us bring the gift of art to as many Collier County children as we can. Your donations go a long way:
- * An Outreach Programming donation of $50 funds an instructor to teach a 2-hour class including all supplies.
- * A $100 ARTScool Supplies donation purchases a variety of art supplies that will cover one weeks’ worth of materials needed for 10 children!
- * An ARTScool Scholarship of $250 provides a student with tuition for an entire week of morning and afternoon class sessions and art supplies.
Volunteers are one of the Naples Art Association’s greatest assets. Each day brings new opportunities for you to share your passion for the arts with the greater Naples community. Our volunteers provide the best experience to our guest and are ambassadors at many of our special events. We invite you to join this dynamic and spirited group of volunteers and continue the 60 year tradition of providing a rich arts culture to our residents and guest to Collier County.
All new volunteers meet with the Volunteer Services Manager for a personal meeting. At this meeting volunteers tour the facility and hear about the multitude of volunteer opportunities available to meet your talent and skill level. Volunteering shows your dedication to the arts and is a fun & rewarding way to give back to your community.
Additionally, volunteers will attend an orientation class and get training specific to their position.
So let’s get started, fill out the volunteer application below, or contact Mary Visgilio at 239-262-6517 X 115.
The arts are a major force driving in the development of our cultural legacy, educational success and economic development. As a non-profit organization built and maintained on private support, Naples Art Association welcomes Sponsorships, Donations, Volunteers and many other forms of support from our community's residents and business owners.
CEO’s of businesses that contribute to the arts recognize that art education stimulates creativity, critical thinking and team building skills, and they identify creativity as one of the key elements they consider when making hiring decisions.
The arts also positively impact economic development and play an integral role in retaining and attracting companies in our region. By contributing to the arts, local business owners not only gain branding recognition, but are also investing in the economic health and future of our community.
