A love letter to Scottsdale Arts ONE members and donors

Over the next week, keep an eye on our social media accounts and the Scottsdale Arts Connections blog for special shout-outs of our tremendous gratitude to generous groups in our community who make the arts possible for all. Today we give thanks to our Scottsdale Arts donors and ONE Members. 

LOVE by Robert Indiana

Dear ONE Members and donors, 

You mean everything to us. As a nonprofit organization, members and donors are our lifeblood and our inspiration. You empower us to serve our community with incredible arts programming because of YOUR love for the arts. This is what unites you: in good times and in moments of trial, you come together to embrace innovation and excellence in the arts and advocate access for all—perhaps whether you mean to or not!  

Membership and sponsorship comes with a handful of diverse and exciting benefits as our thanks for your support (we love seeing you in the ONE Members Tent at the Scottsdale Arts Festival and missed you SO much this past March due to COVID-19). But what really makes a significant difference is that your gift makes the arts possible for others. Your membership touches hundreds who are impacted by our many education and outreach programs, in addition to reaching thousands of individuals of all ages and backgrounds who experience the life-changing magic of live arts on our campus and throughout the city of Scottsdale. Even now, your support allows us to continue serving vulnerable populations with fabulous virtual programming while we safely self-distance. 

ONE Members are the champions of the mission of Scottsdale Arts: To develop, advance, and deliver high-quality arts, cultural experiences, and opportunities in Scottsdale to residents, cultural institutions, artists, and visitors from around the world. Your passion for world-class artistry and advocacy for contemporary creativity strengthens the bonds of our community and ensures that the arts remain an integral part of Arizona culture for generations to come.  

We genuinely thank you for your love and support and wish you and your family well as we overcome this challenging time together.  


Lauren Zapien, membership and events manager—and love from the entire Scottsdale Arts Development team
