This page is for the purpose of requesting a donation from Creative York.
Creative York makes a point of engaging with our community. To this end, we donate a limited amount of services every year. Those donations normally take two forms: event space or class gift certificates. We prefer to donate to other non-profits or to educational institutions in York County, Pennsylvania. Creative York does not make monetary donations.
Please note that Creative York receives many donation requests. All requests are read as received. You will hear back from us within two weeks if your request has been approved. Please do not fill out the form more than once for the same request.
We prefer to spread our donations around, so we do not donate more than once to an entity per calendar year.
Creative York is closed Tuesday, Feb 9, due to snow! Classes today have been postponed. The gallery will be open again on Thursday, Feb 11, from 10a-2p and 6-8p for the opening reception of “Creative York Teaching Artists” and “Specimens.”
The phone company is working to fix the issue, but until further notice we can be reached by email. Be sure to leave your phone number in the email so we can call you back from our cell phones. Sorry for the inconvenience!
Monster Drawing Rallies were initially conceived by Southern Exposure in San Francisco, and have been recreated by nonprofit organizations in cities like Richmond, Brooklyn, Cleveland, Los Angeles, and now YORK! Part performance, part art-bazaar, the Monster Drawing Rally offers a rare opportunity to watch artists work and then purchase their completed pieces! See art-making in action; connect with local artists; mingle with friends! Food and beverages will be available on site for purchase.
