Raising funds for arts education and scholarships

The Arts for All Marathon is our annual fundraising event that creates new opportunities for all aspiring artists in our community.

For two exciting weeks CSMA artists organize events, exhibit in our gallery, work on independent projects, generate support via crowdfunding and contribute to our online auction, all with the goal of keeping CSMA’s education programs accessible to artists from all backgrounds. These efforts help us provide scholarships to anyone and everyone with a desire to learn and create in our downtown space.

This year, we’re thrilled to introduce this crowdfunding tool that will expand the impact of the Marathon. Join artists, board members and arts patrons in our online drive, by donating or by championing our  campaign here on PEAKS.

Since its inception in 2008, CSMA has raised over $100,000 to support this mission. Join us this year to help us raise our goal of $10,000 on our Arts for All Marathon PEAKS campaign! As a 501 (c)3 non-profit organization, all donations and contributions are fully tax deductible.

Make art! Make an impact! Join us!
