Support the Arts

Enhance our Quality of Life

The Howard County Arts Council strives to establish a strong foundation for community-based arts that will provide Howard County citizens with access to diverse and rewarding experiences in the arts, and in doing so, enhances our quality and enjoyment of life. But, we can’t do it alone…

We rely on the generosity of hundreds of individuals and businesses who support the arts through contributions and services. Memberships and contributions are tax-deductible to the full extent of the law.


Become a member of the Arts Council! Memberships are an essential source of funding for the arts. In addition, a strong membership roster lets public officials and other community leaders know that the arts are an important part of community life.

Each level of membership brings its own set of benefits – from discounts on classes to invitations and tickets to the Celebration of the Arts in Howard County gala – but the most important reward is the knowledge that your contribution helps advance and support the arts in Howard County.

Corporate Leadership

An investment in the arts is an investment in the future of our community. Businesses not only benefit from publicly aligning themselves with a well-managed and respected non-profit organization with strong community ties, but with an opportunity to give back to the community in a meaningful way.
