Expanded Programming Opportunities


Spotlight on Women Program Fund | $2,500 Annual Gift
Beginning in 2020, we launched Still SHE Creates a curatorial project celebrating women’s art and championing women artists and leaders. This program fund supports the continuation of that successful series, presenting an exhibition, public program, and cataloguette by a female artist each season.

New Media (Film & Video) Program Fund | $5,000 Annual Gift
This program fund will support expansion into new media, presenting videos of all genres and formats. With 6-10 screenings per year, local to international, this program will be one of a kind in the region.

Arts for Healthy Communities Program | $50,000 (5-year naming rights)
As countless studies have shown, making art improves health and wellbeing. This 5-year program fund will provide subsidized “toolkits” that include plans, supplies, and access to a Master Artist for use by area social service and community organizations to facilitate their own community arts projects.

Teen, Youth & Family Program Series | $50,000 (5-year naming rights)
This 5-year program fund supports The Co’s plans for math, engineering, tech & the arts-focused teen, youth, and family program developed in partnership with fellow Arcade partners, the University of Dayton’s Entrepreneurial Leadership Program, and The Entrepreneur’s Center.

Dayton Artist Launch Endowment* | $10,000
Join our Dayton Artist Launch circle of donors to create this dedicated endowment fund to support in perpetuity our expanded commitment to area artists through the presentation of career-advancing solo exhibitions and cataloguettes.


*Named Endowment Funds in support of key programs will ensure that The Contemporary Dayton continues to provide art for the community and a community for artists in Dayton, Ohio. Funds are invested in perpetuity. The Co dedicates the fund earnings to support the work associated with the program, and areas of greatest opportunity or need.
