Donor Circle

The Donor Circle represents a select group of supporters whose commitment and generosity drives YBCA’s ability to generate culture that moves people. It is not simply a recognition of financial support. It is an invitation to participate more fully in a movement of artists, thinkers, and makers made possible by your support, including tickets to all YBCA-presented programs, exclusive donor events, and special recognition on our donor wall and print materials.

Our initiatives

Donors are key to fostering YBCA’s many signature initiatives. Your gift supports cultural community-building through our annual YBCA 100 Summit and YBCA Fellows, to fostering youth development and civic engagement through school and community partnerships. To make a gift in support of one of these initiatives, please contact us directly.

Planned Giving

Designating YBCA as a beneficiary in your will or financial plan allows you to create a legacy of support for lasting cultural impact in our community.
