Ways To Give

No program in youth development and the arts can fulfill its mission without the ongoing assistance of people who know the power of imagination and joy in young people's lives. Your gift will provide children, youth and young adults in Richmond and the East Bay with the professional faculty, environment and support services required to advance their health and self-determination in a complex and too often inequitable world. Thank you in advance for your contribution. 

Giving Options


Thank you for investing in the Center’s programs, allowing us to care for our 4,000 students and their families annually.


Help address the urgent needs our students and their families are facing during COVID-19. 100% of funds received will go directly to provide support for housing, food, medical emergencies and other basic necessities.


Donating stocks and mutual funds are a tax-wise approach to supporting young artists to illuminate their fullest capacity as human beings.


If you are 70½ years old or older, you can take advantage of a simple way to benefit East Bay Center and receive tax benefits in return. For more information email developmentoffice@eastbaycenter.org.


Double or even triple your donation to the Center with your employer’s matching gift program. Many companies will match charitable contributions made by their employees. Check if your employer offers a matching gift program.


A planned gift will help provide a strong foundation so that future generations will benefit from our robust program long into the future.


We welcome instrument donations year-round. Our organization and students have benefited over the years by the hundreds of instruments donated to the Center from generous supporters.
