As a nonprofit organization employing hundreds of artists, musicians, designers, technicians, teaching artists, and staff, we firmly believe that art is an essential part of life and a place of calm in an otherwise chaotic world. Keeping ourselves afloat during this unprecedented pandemic has put an enormous strain on our operating funds.  

With suspended performances and mandatory closures lasting far longer than any of us predicted and no known end in sight, our savings may not be enough. For us to maintain the people power necessary to bring you another season of world-class performances, events, and visual art, we ask you for help during this critical moment.  

Your love for the arts is a lifeline that will get us through this difficult time. Please consider donating whatever you can to the Scottsdale Arts COVID-19 Relief Fund to help fund these programs and more
