You Helped Us Make Art Happen on Colorado Gives Day

Last Colorado Gives Day (Tuesday, December 6, 2016), we set a new record. We challenged our Board of Directors to match our Colorado Gives Day gifts with $15,000 if we raised more than $20,000. We exceeded our goal with $23,701, adding up to a grand total of $38,701! 

Thank you for helping us meet our goal and we hope that you'll participate again next year. The next Colorado Gives Day will take place in early December 2017. It is one of the largest giving days of the year, but you can give all year-round. Go to to learn more. 

For more than 40 years, the nonprofit Arvada Center has been a cultural powerhouse with Broadway-caliber plays and musicals, children’s theatre, free gallery exhibitions, concerts, renowned ceramics and dance training, visual and performing arts classes, summer camps, youth symphonies and much more. We wish that ticket sales and tuition covered our costs, but it only covers a portion.  We need your contribution to continue offering our award-winning programs.
