We’re saying THANK YOU for volunteering by offering a discounted membership to Art Alliance.

We hope that your experience volunteering was fulfilling, rewarding, and fun! For many of  our volunteers Art Alliance Austin becomes an extended family, because we are a tight network of friends that share a common vision: to advance the city through art, culture and creativity through public life. Today we’re asking you to consider deepening your commitment to Art Alliance Austin and become a member. Our members are critical to this organization’s sustainability and any future growth is directly tied to your membership.

For the rest of the month of May we’re offering a reduced base membership of just $25 for those who have volunteered with us over the past year. The base membership includes member events/parties, staying up to date on projects, events, and happenings, and most importantly that great feeling of knowing that YOU are integral part of art in Austin.

Thank you for all that you do for us. We are forever grateful to our wonderful team of volunteers because without you this truly would not be possible.
