As a member, you are a valued and essential part of an organization at the center of the regional arts scene.

We LOVE our members! Members play a crucial role in our organization’s past, present and future. Your membership dollars are tax-deductible, and help fulfill our mission of bringing world-class arts experiences and education to the Pikes Peak region.

Support from loyal patrons through membership is essential since we receive almost no public funding, and programming revenue covers only a fraction of the costs. Your membership helps enables us to provide important programs such as school tours, youth summer theater programs, and art classes for at-risk youth and our military community.

Do you like to travel? At the Contributing level and above you receive reciprocal membership benefits to other art museums including the Denver Art Museum.

Sustaining Membership


Convenient, automatic, ongoing monthly contributions you can change or stop at any time!

A sustaining membership is a monthly contribution to the FAC at whichever amount is right for you. It is the most convenient and efficient way to support the FAC and its programs while maintaining your FAC member status.

As a Sustaining Member, you will …

  • Enjoy uninterrupted FAC membership status.
  • Help us save dollars in postage, paper and administrative costs.
  • Utilize an eco-friendly option by allowing us to cut down on renewal mailings.
  • Help provide the FAC with a steady and reliable stream of income that allows us to plan for a sustainable future.

How it Works: Your contribution is deducted automatically from the debit or credit card of your choice every month. Your membership renews every year at the same amount. You can make a change or cancel at any time. We will send you a membership card each year.

Sustaining members receive all of the benefits of regular members based on their level of giving.

Level Amount per Month
Contributing $10
Patron $30
Benefactor $60
Fred Bartlett $85

Corresponding Membership benefits will be automatically assigned based on your level of giving. You will receive your membership card in the mail within 2 to 3 weeks of this purchase.


  • You will receive an email confirmation for your records each time a payment is processed.
  • If payment is canceled, membership benefits will expire the same month of the cancellation.
  • The first charge is processed as soon as you click submit. The following payments occur in monthly increments from this first date (meaning that if the first charge was submitted on March 14, the next would be processed on April 14, May 14).
  • You can change the payment date, increase, decrease or cancel your monthly gift by emailing membership or calling 719.477.4390.


As you know, in late August 2016, the FAC and Colorado College announced an alliance that signals the re-envisioning and redefining of both organizations’ contributions to the arts in the region. The partnership supports the missions of both organizations while expanding innovative learning opportunities, arts programming and cultural resources for the greater Colorado Springs community. This alliance will ultimately make the FAC a part of the Colorado College campus and operations. The FAC operations transition to the college starting in July of 2017 and this necessitates changes to our legal structure, which includes a change to our membership bylaws. DETAILS
