Home | About MVCA | Volunteer


Mohawk Valley Center for the Arts has been bringing vibrant events and art programming to the Mohawk Valley since 1982. Only through the generous donations and support of our members, sponsors, and volunteers are we able to continue offering such high quality presentations. MVCA is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization (Tax ID: 16-1189297). Contributions of any size are always appreciated and are tax deductible to the extent provided by law.

There are so many ways to help:

Gifts to General Operations support all programming

Operational funds are utilized to support adult and children’s programming, scholarships, outreach programs, the maintenance of the Center and the 401 Gallery, as well as the purchase of needed supplies, materials, and equipment. An Annual Fund gift of any amount is greatly appreciated and will result in the MVCA continuing to be a significant cultural resource to the Mohawk Valley.

MVCA is growing and busier than ever. We need volunteers! The upcoming year is full of wonderful community festivals, special events, performances, and interesting exhibitions. Now is your chance to experience these and other activities from the inside.

Volunteers work in a wide variety of programs, committees and projects throughout the Center. They greet visitors, work special events, assist with community outreach programs, help in the Selective Eye Gift Shop, or serve on committees. Our volunteers create a gracious, warm environment for visitors and participants, enhancing their enjoyment of MVCA. We also have “behind-the-scenes” volunteer opportunities available. These volunteers help our administrative and clerical staff by doing research, answering phones, photocopying, filing and entering data. We thank you in advance for your interest and participation. Your contribution is valued and greatly appreciated.

Call 315.823.0808 or email director@mohawkvalleyarts.org .  We’ll be glad you did!
