Providing grants, programs, and services to the artists and audiences of Tompkins County for over 25 years

Your Support Makes ART Happen!

Your support of the Community Arts Partnership's annual fund makes our work of strengthening the arts throughout Tompkins County possible.  All gifts will be acknowledged on our website and annual report unless otherwise specified by the donor.  We'll send a thank-you letter acknowledging your gift as a tax deductable charitable donation. 

  • DONATE BY CHECK: ​Payable to "Community Arts Partnership". Mail to: Community Arts Partnership, 171 E. State/MLK Jr. Street, Ithaca, NY 14850.  Include the name(s) you would like CAP to use in their donor acknowledgements, your e-mail address, and (if donating $300 and up) that you would like to join the Advocacy Circle  (see below.) 


  • DONATE ADVOCATES CIRCLE! (minimum of $300 for 3 years) 



What is the Advocates Circle?

The Community Arts Partnership has a proud history of administering quality programing and the time is right for this organization to do more. There are currently new opportunities, partnerships and collaborations being developed - and that's why we created the Advocates Circle.

Becoming a member of the Advocates Circle requires a pledge of (a minimum of) $300 a year for three years. Recently 20 of our friends and neighbors stepped forward to make such a pledge!

We invite you to become part of the Circle, thereby providing CAP with the resources needed to take on these important additional responsibilities: 

  • Working with local, state and national representatives to advocate effectively for Tompkins County's cultural institutions and opportunities.
  • Bring stakeholders together to define areas of mutual interest and develop clear messages and methods to advance those interests with a unified voice.  
  • Enrich local arts and cultural programs and projects through research and the development of sources of significant support from outside of Tompkins County.   

Benefits provided Advocacy Members include:

  • a members-only introduction to their exciting new photography program at the Johnson Museum of Art, 
  • kickoff "first dibs" reception for our annual CAP-a-Palooza Art Sale Extraordinaire, 
  • a voucher through CAP for 20% off regular priced tickets for the Hangar Theatre Company's inaugural Holiday Production of Charles Dicken’s "A Christmas Carol"
  • a "sneak peek" at a KitchenTheatre main stage production before it reaches the general public
Thank you to our wonderful supporters!
