The West Virginia Watercolor Society welcomes donations in any amount that will help it further its mission to “promote and ensure the high standards of the art of watercolor painting in the state of West Virginia.”

Donors may choose to direct gifts to support our youth or adult educational programs or to the funding of our exhibitions and awards. Unspecified donations will be placed in our general fund and used where most needed.

Exhibition award sponsorships must equal or exceed the amount of the award. The award may then be named for the sponsoring person or organization or in honor or memory of the sponsor’s chosen organization or person. Award sponsorships will be cited in our exhibition catalog and on the exhibition page of the Society’s website. Donors may, of course, remain anonymous.

West Virginia Watercolor Society Inc. is a tax-exempt, 501 (c) 3 organization. Donations to WVWS may qualify as a charitable donation for federal income tax purposes. Donors should consult with a tax advisor or the IRS to determine whether a contribution is deductible for a particular situation.
