VARC is a community-based charity that needs all the support it can get to remain a sustainable organisation with a long-term future. There are three ways in which you can support us:
Become a Friend of VARC
VARC needs Friends in both the local and wider community, but also from those who support our aims in providing community-based contemporary arts projects with particular attention to groups with special needs such as autism.
As a Friend of VARC you will receive regular email progress reports on all our activities as well as invitations to events, exhibitions and open days. Your views and ideas are always welcome, and you will also have the satisfaction of knowing that YOU are helping us not just to survive, but develop.
Membership for an individual or family is just £15 per year. You can pay by cash (in person), by cheque made out to VARC or by standing order. If you are a UK taxpayer, please complete the Gift Aid declaration form; this will enable us to make your contribution go further by the addition of a donation from the government.
Make a Donation
If you would like to donate money you can send a one-off donation or make a regular monthly donation. If you are a UK taxpayer, please complete the Gift Aid declaration form; this will enable us to make your contribution go further by the addition of a donation from the government.
