Support the Festival

*If a donor is giving to VVF through an entity in which you have already received a tax-deduction, such as a Private Foundation, DAF, Charitable Trust and/or if a portion of your gift is being made through a Matching Gifts Program, there may be restrictions specific to receiving benefits. Please contact your tax-adviser if you have questions regarding your specific situation. The Vail Valley Foundation cannot knowingly facilitate a donor receiving an improper tax deduction or other benefit nor can we knowingly accept a gift that would result in impermissible private inurement or private benefit, an “excess benefit transaction” (as defined in section 4958 of the Internal Revenue Code), or self-dealing (as defined in section 4941 of the Internal Revenue Code).

ARTE DAVIES MEMORIAL FUND

Arte Davies loved the Vail Dance Festival and was an integral part of its growth and success over the years. His personal and amiable style of caring for the artists, staff, patrons and crew will be fondly remembered forever.

From 1994 through 2015, Arte was a permanent fixture at the Gerald R. Ford Amphitheater, always present for countless magical summer performances and events.

Arte had a special affinity for the Festival interns and each group, in turn, adored him and valued the knowledge gained from working with him. Each summer, Festival interns are trained in Arte’s philosophy and hospitality practices. At the conclusion of each Festival, one intern is nominated by their peers to receive the Spirit of Arte Davies Award. To keep Arte’s spirit alive, donations collected through the Arte Davies Memorial Fund support the Vail Dance Festival Internship Program.

**To make a donation to the Arte Davies Memorial Fund, use the donation form above and select ‘other’. Fill in the amount you would like to donate. Then, under the Tribute Gift section, enter the comment, “I would like to make a donation to the Arte Davies Memorial Fund.”

COMMUNITY ARTS ACCESS

Launched in 2016, the Community Arts Access (CAA) program is working to eliminate socioeconomic barriers to the arts by providing complimentary performance tickets to individuals and families who could not otherwise afford to attend Festival performances.

For opportunities to sponsor a family or contribute to this critical outreach program, please contact Sarah Johnson (sjohnson@vvf.org).
