Thank you for considering a contribution to the New York Mills Arts Retreat (our legal name)! Your support makes it possible for us to continue to bring high quality arts experiences to the people of our rural region.

A gift of any size will make an impact:

  • $25 keeps the lights and heat on for one day
  • $50 pays one of our Longest Night Music Festival performers
  • $100 covers the cost of one session of Art in Your Park
  • $300 provides one child’s tuition to participate in two weeks of creative workshops leading to the production of our annual Puppet Pageant
  • $500 underwrites half the cost of a typical performance in our seasonal performing arts series

We are so grateful for all of our donors, members, and the community that surrounds us in New York Mills, our West Central Minnesota region, and beyond.

Your contributions help us continue our efforts to “Weave a Community” by bringing people together to experience art, culture, and creativity. This is at the heart of our mission: to be a rural hub for creativity, community vitality, and lifelong learning in the arts.
