Give to the Crafts Center

As one of the largest craft-focused arts programs at any university, the Crafts Center at NC State provides a vital service to the university and general public. As a rich resource of hands-on, immersive, life-long learning skills, the Crafts Center works to enhance the creative, professional, and personal lives of NC State students and beyond.

With additional funding, the center could:

  • reach more students in all disciplines
  • provide valuable career-track instruction in the latest technologies
  • support and provide instruction for developing lifelong skill sets
  • create a makerspace that fuses old and new ways of making and leads the way for prototyping/designing

Benefits of Giving

The university’s 501(c)(3) designation means that taxpayers can deduct donations for gifts to the university and its program. Visit the NC State Giving website for more information.

“Even when we lived up on the Virginia border, I would come into town every once in a while just to make some sawdust,” remarked Eric Terwilliger, as he reminisced about his time at the NC State University Crafts Center

Every gift, no matter its size, makes a difference in the lives of students at NC State University. Because annual gifts are typically used soon after they are received, we depend on ongoing support from alumni, parents, and community members. Annual giving is your opportunity to influence the future of the Crafts Center, year after year.

You can choose to support Arts NC State after your lifetime, helping to sustain the arts program for future generations. For more information on deferred giving, please contact Peyton Stokley at (919) 513-4101.

A gift of appreciated securities, including stocks or bonds, is an easy way for you to make a gift to Arts NC State. These gifts provide both significant tax and financial benefits, such as bypassing capital gains taxes and providing income tax deductions.

To learn more about making a gift of stock, call Peyton Stokley at (919) 513-4101.

We accept gifts in kind for those who want to donate raw materials or equipment that can be used by our many programs. Please email to arrange this type of gift.

Want to donate equipment or technology?

For the Crafts Center to grow and meet the demands of next-generation and digitally literate students and patrons, it must maintain and improve its equipment and facilities. While the center is historically steeped in traditional craft, the addition of a digital media makerspace would not only position the Crafts Center as the largest makerspace on campus – it would provide a much broader offering of classes and resources for students of all ages.

Corporate gifts of art supplies, raw materials, equipment, and technology enables our students and instructors to experience new products at the beginning of their artistic journey.

Artist residencies allow students and artists to learn from one another and to create together in sustained, immersive ways. Arts NC State programs actively work with professional artists who are passionate about both creating and teaching. They engage our entire community, forging unforgettable partnerships between NC State and the worldwide community of artists. These experiences can only become regular parts of Arts NC State’s programming through significant investments of private support.
