Why Donate?

As a non-profit organization, The Sawdust Corporation uses general donations to pay for the cost of operations and renovations.

You make it possible.

Being able to share our passion for art both with our community and with the 200,000 guests that visit us each year, is a constant source of pride for us, and a responsibility which we humbly cherish. But we could not do this without your help!

  • With donors, we are able to offer more vibrant, magical classes that allow both young and old to find their creative inner voice. 
  • With additional support, we are able to provide educational workshops for underserved populations, who may otherwise never have the opportunity to experience the sheer joy of creating a piece of artwork. 
  • With stewarding, we are able to award scholarships to local high school graduates, helping them to follow their dream of becoming an artist. 
  • With benefactors, we are able to maintain our historic eucalyptus grove for year-round use, creating a safe and well-equipped environment which provides financial stability for over 200 artists annually. 
  • With your support, we are able to employ over 120 local residents during the festival seasons, as well as providing a venue for local musicians and entertainers. 

With your contribution, we are able to continue to bring the magic of Sawdust into people’s lives and carry on with our important educational work within the community.
