Headlands Center for the Arts


If you’re like us, you value the arts. We believe that art —like science, technology, and medicine—requires research, early investment, and ongoing support. We believe artists are problem solvers, interpreters, tone setters, and innovators, and we believe that a well-supported arts sector is critical to healthy, vibrant societies.

When you support Headlands, you are directly supporting artists and the creation of bold, new, thought-provoking art. You are also getting behind our commitment to a particular place, to a specific moment in time, to creative individuals and their role as part of the larger whole, and to investing in the next generation of artistic leadership.

Help make it happen. Gifts of all shapes and sizes make a difference.

Our members are active participants in our community and benefit from invitations to seasonal dinners, preview events, and discounts on programs and special events. Member events are intimate by design, intended to serve as reminders of what drew you here in the first place, and a chance to engage with the individuals and the work you are directly supporting.

Underwriting invites you to make a significant impact in artists’ practice and in the cultural landscape with a dedicated contribution toward an Artist in Residence award or an Alumni New Works award.

Corporate Partners  invest in creativity, experimentation, and innovation by collaborating with Headlands to create a sponsorship package that offers access, visibility, and special offerings designed to meet your company’s goals.

You might well imagine that the needs of a 75,000-square-foot historic arts center are, well … vast. Thinking of trading in that pickup truck or dining room table? See our In-kind Donations page for some of our more pressing needs.

We couldn’t do what we do without our supporters!
