Support the FAC through El Paso County Enterprise Zone

General fund contributions to the FAC are eligible for El Paso County Enterprise Zone tax credits. If you make an *unrestricted gift to our annual fund of at least $500, you may receive a 25% Colorado state income tax credit. Gifts of stock are also eligible for a 12.5% tax, it just feels good to give.

To make an eligible donation, simply make your check payable to “El Paso County Enterprise Zone” and on the memo line write “FAC general.”  Mail your check to the Fine Arts Center, Development Department, 30 W Dale St, Colorado Springs CO  80903. In order to receive this tax credit, you must file your state taxes electronically and provide us with your social security or tax ID number. We’ll fill out the necessary forms, submit the paperwork, and ensure that you receive your tax credit certificate from the Enterprise Zone.

Keep in mind that the Enterprise Zone charges the FAC an administration fee of 3.5% on each qualifying contribution. Because of this, please consider increasing your donation slightly to compensate for the fee.

For gifts of stock, or if you have any other questions about the Enterprise Zone incentive program, please do not hesitate to call the Development Department at 719.477.4319.

* Does not apply to Curtain Call, Event tickets, Bemis Scholarship or other donations designated to specific projects or events.

Why should I make a donation to the Colorado Springs Fine Arts Center?
During uneasy economic times, people are often less likely to support the arts. But the Fine Arts Center needs your annual fund donation more than ever. We remain committed to providing arts education to children and adults through the Bemis School of Art, offering a full season of outstanding theatre and presenting world-class art exhibitions. This will only be possible through the support of individuals like you!

Angel Society

Join the sustaining force behind artistic discovery at the Fine Arts Center. After an expansion, many museums experience a transition period of three years that stretches the capacity of the organization. The Angel Society was created to ease that transition for the FAC by providing a stable and continual source of operating funds, enabling growth in programming and community outreach. Angel Society donors pledge anywhere from $1,000 to $100,000 annually for three years, which includes a Donor Circle membership.

Curtain Call Society

The Curtain Call Society directly supports the Fine Arts Center Theatre Company and Performing Arts Department. These funds are 100% restricted for use the in the theatre and fund needs above and beyond those supported by general operating funds.

Sponsorship Opportunities

Fine Arts Center exhibitions, theatre productions, Family Adventure Days at Bemis School of Art, and other programs would not be possible without the generous support of sponsors. The FAC offers high-value benefit packages with maximum marketing and exposure to ever-expanding audiences. New opportunities always exist for individuals, foundations and corporations.

Matching Gifts

Many companies match $1 for $1, or even $2 for $1, for the gifts that employees make to nonprofit organizations. Some even give financial donations to match volunteer time by employees. Ask your human resource department for the matching gift policy of your place of employment, then submit their required paperwork along with your donation to make your gift go even further.

To learn more about any of these giving opportunities, contact the development office at 719.477.4319
