Donation Requests

Thank you for your interest in the Hopkins Center for the Arts. The Art Center builds community through the arts by fostering creative expression and providing artistic and educational opportunities for people of all ages, economics, and ethnicity, from across the state of Minnesota and beyond.

Donation Criteria

The Hopkins Center for the Arts is committed to supporting charitable activities through donations to nonprofit organizations. Because of the growing number of requests received asking for donations to silent auctions, the Center has established criteria for supporting fundraising efforts through donations. In keeping with our missions, our priority will be to support events benefiting the following:

  • Arts organizations within the seven county metropolitan area
  • Educational organizations within the seven county metropolitan area
  • Hopkins organizations, businesses and individuals

Receiving Donations

Although we would like to reply favorably to every request that we receive, it is simply impossible to do so. If we are able to support your efforts, donations will be provided in concert tickets for the current concert season (seasons run October to May).

Every organization’s efforts are important, to ensure that we can help as many as possible, please send your request at least one month prior to your event. If approved, donations will be mailed within one week of the event.

Submit Form

Submit the Silent Auction Donation Request form if you would like your organization to be considered for a donation.
