CVAC Launches Capital Campaign

E-mail Print PDF

The Carson Valley Arts Council (CVAC) has launched its Capital Campaign to raise $900,000, fulfilling the promise: To Create a Home for the Arts. When successfully completed, the campaign will:

  • Pay off the note on the old Copeland Lumber building.
  • Allow CVAC to be debt-free and move forward with the renovation of the Copeland building into a fixed-seat theater.


The campaign has had significant early success. Personal gifts and pledges totaling $377,000 have earned CVAC a strong showing. With these early donations, CVAC has raised 42 percent of its campaign goal.

“The Capital Campaign will be implemented in three phases. The campaign was designed with the current economy in mind, so that each phase of development will only be undertaken as funds are raised,” said Brian Fitzgerald, CVAC President. “The response from potential donors has been overwhelmingly positive. The project builds upon our strong relationships within the community.”

If you are interested in financially supporting our efforts, donations to CVAC are not just a gift to our community; they may be tax deductible as allowed by law.
