Now more than ever, what we do at Pacific Northwest College of Art matters.
For years, our community has come together at our annual fundraising Gala to champion PNCA students and affirm the importance of art and design education. This year, we’ve had to cancel the Gala and are turning to our close friends and donors to provide critical support for our students and to sustain the college’s future through this special spring appeal.Our Goal is to raise $350,000 to replace the revenue we would have raised at the Gala.
We ask you to support PNCA during this unprecedented time by making a gift today
While we cannot gather in person to recognize our PNCA Center of Creativity Awardees at the Gala as we had planned, we will be honoring our awardees with an online publication spotlighting their support of the college and their work advocating for and advancing arts and culture in our community and beyond.
