View introduces Long View Council

The Long View Council at View is a leadership group of individuals who seek to sustain the arts center for years to come through annual giving support or an annual donation to View’s Moving Mountains Campaign for debt retirement.

The LVC was created in order to recognize donors who give $1,000 or more to View each year. Some give to the Moving Mountains Campaign for debt retirement, others help underwrite the programming budget or donate prize money for awards. Many donors contribute to more than one area. Some give once a year, others give throughout the year. We need – and appreciate – all of our donors and their variety of interests and levels of support.

As our way of saying thank you, members of Long View Council receive a distinctive package of benefits and recognition. First, LVC members receive View membership benefits at the highest level of membership – the Benefactor level. This includes complimentary admission to all exhibitions, a household membership to give as a gift, and a copy of the annual watercolor poster, as well as membership discounts and mailings. All members have voting privileges at the annual meeting (in person or by proxy).

LVC members also are recognized in the Noonan Entrance Gallery at View and receive special name tags to wear at View receptions and events. They also receive complimentary beverages at View exhibition receptions and are welcome to bring guests to any of our exhibits at no charge. LVC members also receive a complimentary copy of the annual watercolor catalog and invitations to special LVC events.

Donors may join the LVC directly with a $1,000 donation to the LVC Fund (payable over the course of the year, if you wish – just let us know your intentions). When you join the LVC directly, ten percent of your donation will go toward building View’s endowment.

Or donors may give to the areas of their choice and will receive membership into LVC based on total annual giving to View.
