ShenArts supports the arts through programming, instruction and exhibition

and expands arts awareness to the community of the Northern Shenandoah Valley. 




Just a few weeks ago, a local volunteer made a video on Facebook to launch a challenge asking friends to do 2 things: Donate $100 to ShenArts, and challenge 3 additional friends to do the same! With a goal to raise $10,000, we are more than 1/3 of the way! 

We hope that you will join these donors as “Friends of ShenArts” by donating an annual gift in support of the arts and programs we provide.  Donations can be made by clicking “Support” in the top right corner or by mail to the ShenArts address listed above, and ALL donations are greatly appreciated.
