The Art of Giving

Thanks to your continued support, the UCF Art Gallery is able to provide quality collections, exhibitions, and educational programming. Here are some additional ways to contribute to the UCF Art Gallery.

Annual Fund

Your gift in support of the art gallery operations helps keep it strong and vibrant in countless ways. As the primary funding for everyday activities of the gallery, your generous contribution goes towards a variety of on-going exhibition and educational efforts.

Corporate Sponsorships

Sponsorship of Gallery events and exhibitions provides an extraordinary opportunity to get involved with the SVAD, CAH and for recognition and visibility. Some of the most popular opportunities for sponsorship include: temporary exhibitions, exhibition preview openings, lectures and symposia.

Digital Age Initiative

The overarching goal of the Digital Age Initiative is to unlock access to the gallery’s entire collection. This goal includes making our collection available on-line through our website.

Educational Programming

It takes extensive resources and a staff with a wide range of expertise to provide educational programming for an audience that includes students, teachers, parents and children, adults of all interests and education levels, senior citizens, scholars, art-lovers and, of course, first-time visitors to the gallery. Your gift will help support these very important programming initiatives.

Endowment Gifts

An endowed gift is a gift that the Gallery holds in perpetuity. The gift is invested, and only a portion of its average annual investment return is used for purposes specified by the donor. Many of our donors realize that SVAD’s mission and strength in the future depends on building a foundation through endowments today.

Exhibition Programming

The gallery presents several temporary exhibitions each year, ranging from comprehensive single-artist retrospectives to focused exhibitions that explore specific topics. Organization of these exhibitions can take a year, and often requires the cooperation of many museums and private collectors along with considerable research scholarship. Your gift in support of exhibitions will provide much needed funds for these ambitious and innovative undertakings, including the research and organization that accompanies each presentation.


The mission of Partners Advancing Values in Education is to serve schools and senior citizen groups that do not have art teachers, serving schools in low-income areas and with minority populations is another component of the mission. Your contribution to PAVE will facilitate our hands-on summer camps and juried exhibitions and portfolio reviews featuring high School students and faculty.

Our loyal supporters benefit in numerous ways including the university’s Donor Recognition. For more information regarding the opportunities above, or for other ways to give, please contact Yulia Tikhonova, director of the gallery, at [email protected] or 407-823-3161.
