2020 Annual Giving Campaign

Art inspires, brings people together, and creates vibrancy throughout our region.

For 40 years Allied Arts of Whatcom County has been a leader in our community by supporting and fostering the local art scene and serving more than 50,000 people annually. Our mission here at Allied Arts of Whatcom County is to create a vibrant community connected through the arts, by empowering local artists through organized events, fostering arts education in our local schools and engaging enthusiasts of the arts.  We need your continued support to make our programs possible. Please consider giving to our End of Year Campaign.
