The Stride Art Gallery Association is grateful to its many Members for their support of the gallery. This crucial support helps us to provide excellent professional development opportunities to contemporary Canadian artists, and play a significant role in Calgary’s vibrant arts and culture community.
With your donation of $20 (or $10 for students), you will receive a year-long Membership with Stride, which includes invitations to our exhibitions and special events, access to our archives and resources, and special notices about what’s happening here at the gallery. We’re always working to develop meaningful ways to thank our Friends for their support. Please contact the gallery for more information on how to reap the rewards of a Friendship with Stride
Donations in any dollar amount are gratefully accepted at any time and go directly towards the gallery’s programming operations. This kind of financial support has the added benefit of helping us demonstrate our community’s investment in Stride’s programming for our funders and other partners.
If you wish, you can dedicate your donation to a specific area of our operations. To learn about opportunities to sponsor Stride’s programming or special events, please contact the gallery directly.
Donations can be made by cash or cheque (made out to Stride Gallery), or by credit card via CanadaHelps.org. Stride will issue a tax receipt for any contribution exceeding $20, tax receipts for donations processed online will be sent directly from CanadaHelps.org.
Stride is grateful for the support of a strong network of volunteers. Opportunities to get involved with the gallery as a volunteer include jobs like assisting with exhibition installation and deinstall, administrative tasks in preparation for exhibitions or special events, bartending or taking photographs at openings receptions, and helping with our fundraisers events and casinos. Volunteering at the gallery is a great way to learn about artist-run culture and gallery operations, meet other artists and arts professionals, and gain hands-on experience working in your chosen field.
