Gilmer Arts and Heritage Association is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization.

All About Arts contributions are separate from annual sponsorship or membership payments. All donations directly support the fiscal budget for Gilmer Arts and the Gilmer Arts Playhouse. For donors age 70.5 and up, a Direct Distribution from your IRA is non-taxable income and counts toward your required annual distribution. Contact your financial advisor for details.
