Giving Vines

A wonderful new way to support us. When you shop for wine, Giving Vines donates 15%-20% of sales to pARTners. Giving Vines is a charitably-focused online wine shop dedicated to helping non-profit organizations generate donations through the sale of high-quality, name-brand wines.

Consider a tax-deductable donation through the following channels:

Old Bill's Fun Run 

Donating to pARTners through the Community Foundation of Jackson Hole and Old Bill's Fun Run is a great way to give essential cash support. Generous Jackson Hole donors, make your contribution grow by matching every dollar you donate to pARTners through Old Bill’s Fun Run.

Donors Circle

Joining the Donors Circle is a wonderful way to join the pARTners community.  Several levels of giving provide members opportunities to support our work.  Please contact us to learn more about the Donors Circle.

Sustained Giving

You recognize the very important enrichment pARTners provides to nearly every student in the Teton County schools and you want to see our work continue. Please contact us to learn more about opportunities for charitable giving.

Volunteer

pARTners would love to have your involvement. Stop by our office at the Center for the Arts and we will plug you into our organization according to your interests.

Artists

Would you like to share your passion for the arts with students in Jackson Hole's schools? Find out about on-going projects and future projects and we will plug you in according to your interests. Do you have a project you would like to teach in the schools? Share your idea with us and we'll explore with you how to tie your project to the school curriculum. PARTners pays artists $25 an hour for their work in the classroom. Not confident about going into the classroom alone? We often hire support staff for artists. Support staff get a good overview of how artists and teachers collaborate in the classroom.

Educators

Would you be interested in meeting with artists and teachers to review and evaluate projects and make recommendations for next time the project takes place? We need you to help plan projects to illuminate the curriculum. Each project supported by pARTners is evaluated at its conclusion.

Organizers 

Help us organize our very fun annual fundraiser. We are looking for some fresh, new ideas. Care to help?

Parents

According to the 1999 compilation of national studies of the arts, Champions of Change, "the arts provide learning opportunities for the adults in lives of young people." Whether you dabble in watercolor, make photography your hobby, dance for the fun of it or are a professional artist of some sort, your talent and time can be very helpful to your child's teacher and the project. The best thing for you to do each year is offer your support and talent to your child's teacher. Find out what he/she plans to do and what is the content of the curriculum. Together, you might be able to come up with an idea for a pARTners Grant. There have been several cases over the years in which parents helped teachers come up with project ideas, organize them, seek the necessary funding, and implement them. These are usually very successful projects when the parental commitment is high.
