The Building Fund is specifically earmarked for special beautification projects and maintenance of the building that come up over time or are planned.  For example, roof repair, maintenance of plumbing and electrical, inside building maintenance, outside patio repair, etc.

Donations to the General Fund go to help pay for all other general operating costs of the National Watercolor Society.  Your donation to this fund helps to pay for the Gallery Manager, every day bills, telephone, internet, office supplies, gala receptions for our exhibitions, invited guest speakers and jurors.  Please consider donating to this fund if you would like to see more great NWS activities be scheduled and paid for.

The purpose of the Grapevine Education Fund is to finance selected NWS Educational Video Projects designed to make the teachings of innovative artists who foster creativity, accessible to a wider viewership through online platforms.
