Make A Gift

Since 1995, ArtsOC has been the leader in building appreciation for, participation in, and support for the arts and arts education.

A gift to ArtsOC is a direct investment in the future health of Orange County’s creative ecology and those arts organizations you love.

Your support of our work enables us to continue providing vital support services to our local arts & cultural organizations and individual artists and to host annual arts events that connect and engage our community, and especially families and children, in the arts.

Thank you for your support!
