CState ArtsWave campaign is Apr. 8-26

ArtsWave is the Greater Cincinnati region's local arts agency and the nation's first and largest community campaign for the arts.

With the help of donors, ArtsWave provides funding, workshops, and other resources to more than 125 arts and community organizations that make our region interesting, innovative, and lively.

Dr. Monica Posey serves as an ArtsWave Trustee.

Cincinnati State's ArtsWave campaign begins today, Apr. 8, and continues until Friday, Apr. 26.

Your contribution to ArtsWave helps create a ripple effect of community benefits, so please consider renewing a past gift or making a new gift to ArtsWave this year.

  • Look for your ArtsWave pledge card in your division/department office, and find out more about pledge levels in the letter from Dr. Posey sent to your College email on Friday, Apr. 5
  • You can make a pledge by check, or through payroll deduction (fill out the payroll deduction section of the pledge form)
  • Return pledge cards to the Development Office (ATLC 337) on Clifton Campus

If you prefer, you can contribute your ArtsWave gift online at Cincinnati State's ArtsWave portal:
