Gift Giving

BIG ARTS relies on the generous support it receives each year from the community to ensure that we are able to provide vibrant performance, visual arts programming and stimulating educational experiences to island residents and visitors.

The Laverne and Bill Phillips Endowment Campaign
for Enrichment, Education, and Entertainment

In honor of the Phillips’ immeasurable contributions BIG ARTS has begun a $2.5 million endowment campaign. The campaign will ensure that BIG ARTS will continue to impact the community by offering presentations by the finest performers, artists, scholars, notables, and educational programs for all ages in an attractive island setting.
