Make it possible for poets and painters, composers and playwrights, sculptors and authors to work at the Hermitage Artist Retreat.
In times of crisis, non-profit arts organizations are some of the hardest hit, and for a company of our size, your support now is more critical and meaningful than ever.
Your fully tax-deductible gift will support our mission of inspiring the artists of our time.
Our annual budget includes essential initiatives like preserving our historic buildings, protecting the ecology on our vast multi-acre property, providing free arts programming for the community, and — most important to our mission — providing an inspiring and transformative experience to feed the creativity of our artists.
You may also inquire about these other special opportunities:
Artist Residency Sponsorship
With a contribution of $7,500 or more, you will be making it possible for us to bring renowned artists from around the world to the Hermitage for a residence. In addition, you will be paired with one of our distinguished Hermitage fellows and enjoy a new friendship with an acclaimed artist.
Free arts programs for the community showcase our artists on our Manasota Key beach campus, as well as the venues of our Sarasota partner organizations. With a sponsorship of $5,000, you can make one of these programs possible.
Be a Hermitage champion by sponsoring one of our three annual events: the Artful Lobster, Muse Luncheon, and Greenfield Prize Award Dinner.
Palm Circle Membership
We celebrate our Palm Circle supporters who give more than $2,500 to the Hermitage during the calendar year by offering intimate artist-centered events which could happen nowhere else.
Our historic campus, ecological preserve, and administrative building are ripe with naming opportunities. Make a legacy for you and your family with a naming gift.
Endowment funds may be established to fund in perpetuity any of our activities or initiatives. A newly established cultural endowment fund enables the Hermitage to continue providing free arts programming for our Gulf Coast community, in perpetuity. Other endowment funds are designated for residency sponsorship, campus maintenance, and general operations.
Planned Giving and Donor Advised Funds
Make a lasting and thoughtful impact through estate planning or by arranging an annual distribution to the Hermitage from your Donor Advised Fund.
Distributions from your IRA
Annual required minimum distributions may be directed tax-free to a qualified charitable organization like the Hermitage.
Gifts at all levels are considered expressions of support for our mission and are most gratefully appreciated. For more information about supporting the Hermitage, please contact:
