The 2024 Buy a Personalized Peach Campaign

The fundraising peach tree in The Art Center of Western Colorado (TAC) courtyard is about to bloom, and we need your help to make it flourish! For a $1,000 donation committed to a specific cause, you receive a personalized peach sprout on our tree.

This summer, our case is clear and crucial: we need to raise funds for a van. TAC needs its own van to transport programs, art, supplies, and people to various locations.

Why a van matters:
