Memorial and Tribute Gifts
Make a gift in honor or memory of a special person, or in honor of a birthday, anniversary or other special occasion.
Gifts of appreciated securities (Stocks And Bonds)
Gifting appreciated stocks and bonds offers a range of potential tax benefits including avoidance of capital gain tax without losing maximum tax deductibility (to the extent allowed by law).
Estate, Endowment and Planned Gifts

(See your tax consultant for details).
Many employers will make a matching gift to Studio Channel Islands Art Center when one of their employees makes a donation. Find out if your employer has such a program. This is a great opportunity to increase the size of your gift.
*“Mystery Masterpiece” is our largest and most popular annual event. Each “Mystery Masterpiece” ticket is randomly assigned a priority number and the ticket holder, when the number is announced, is entitled to select a work of art valued at not less than $250 and, in most cases, quite a bit more. What’s the mystery? The mystery is that all of the art is signed in a hidden spot. Some artists may be famous celebrities. Some artists may be legends in the art community.
