The GAAC is a tax-exempt 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization (EIN: 38-2886660). Contact our office at 231.334.6112 to make a gift over the phone, transfer appreciated securities, or discuss exceptional donation possibilities.
We rely on the generosity of private and public donors for crucial funding beyond our membership dues. These gifts directly impact our programs, classes, lectures, and events that further creativity in Leelanau County and beyond.
GAAC strives to foster new conversations through innovative exhibitions, Gallery Talks, and thought-provoking learning opportunities. Exhibitions at GAAC are more than works of art hanging on the gallery walls. They are engaging, participatory experiences that connect us by creating a dialogue through artist talks, panel discussions, interactive gallery spaces, and digital resources. We connect with people through our programs, exhibitions, and classes to encourage a deeper relationship with art that resonates in our everyday lives in meaningful ways. You help provide creative opportunities for children, families, and individuals throughout the year—many visiting for the first time.

Tax-Free Transfers to Charity for IRA Owners 70½ or Older
IRA owners aged 70½ or older can directly transfer, tax-free, up to $100,000 per year to an eligible charity.
The funds must be transferred directly by the IRA trustee to the eligible charity to qualify. Amounts transferred to a charity from an IRA are counted toward the Required Minimum Distribution (RMD) and not taxed as income. Therefore, if you make a tax-free contribution, you cannot deduct the charitable contribution from your income tax return.
Consult with your IRA trustee and your tax adviser in making this contribution.
Please consider making an IRA tax-free charitable contribution to Glen Arbor Arts Center.
