How to Donate

As residents of the Stevens Point/Plover area we are indeed fortunate to have many cultural opportunities and events to erich our lives. We all know these opportunities and events do not happen by themselves but require dedication from volunteers and financial support from appreciative and generous patrons. The Festival of the Arts recieves no funding from UWSP, and is supported by area businesses, patrons, and volunteers.

Your Help is Needed!
