Where to Give

You are in the main content

Help a world-class arts faculty transform creativity into a thriving incubator for culture in society.

Visual and Performing Arts

You can power the creativity that lifts lives

Your gift enables professors and students to explore artistic self-expression and produce original works that stimulate dialogue and create new thinking.

When you give, you provide the resources for students to engage in arts experiences that further intercultural understanding and lift lives. Like using dance to reach Alzheimer’s patients. Or theater to compel political change. Or photography to explore genetics. Or children’s theater to encourage literacy.

JMU’s status in the arts and national leadership in General Education mean students master their art in a conservatory-quality experience firmly grounded in a liberal arts context. That’s a powerful combination. Your gift supports professors who teach and mentor students; guide student scholarship, research and creative projects; and engage students in service-learning — which in turn engages the community in the powerful opportunities of profound artistic expression.  

The creative economy is snapping up these well-grounded and contextually educated graduates who carry that ethos of engaged creativity into the world and help us all reenvision it. Your gift makes it possible.
