Partnerships

Supporting art for everyone is a community effort. We are fortunate to receive grants for our operations through the Regional District of East Kootenay and District of Invermere. A special thank you to the Columbia Valley Chamber of Commerce. The Columbia Valley Community Foundation supports our programming, in addition to operating an endowment fund on our behalf. Canada Helps allows us to accept donations.

CV Arts is the proud owner of a Steinway Grand Piano, currently housed at the Christ Church Trinity. We welcome local and visiting pianists to visit this beautiful instrument whenever the church is open.

We are also grateful to the following organizations for their ongoing support and collaboration:
BCAC | BC Arts Council | BC Touring Council | Columbia Kootenay Cultural Alliance | Rotary Invermere
