Hearts for the Arts

February 11, 2017

We're now in full swing planning for our 2017 Hearts for the Arts, and we're asking for your help! We are now accepting donations of both artwork and local services for our annual dinner auction on February 11, 2016 at the Community Center in South Bend. Tickets are $35.00 in advance and will be available at South Bend and Sagen's Pharmacies.

As another successful year wraps up, we would like to thank all who have donated to, and attended, Hearts for the Arts over the years. With the donations received for the Hearts for the Arts auction last February we have been able to contribute to the continued growth and success of many artful individuals and organizations, including South Bend and Raymond High Schools arts departments, the band program at Chauncey Davis Elementary, teen drawing classes at local Timberland Libraries, as well as continuing our support of Willapa Harbor Corale, Sunday Afternoon Live and the Carriage Museum. Thank you for your support and Happy New Year!

Tickets now available for 2017 gas raffle!

Win 100 gallons of gas! Tickets are $1.00 and available at: Jayden's German Store, Elixir, South Bend Pharmacy, and Bank of the Pacific. Winner announced at Hearts for the Arts.

Please call (360)581-0975 for more information, or contact us.

What We Do

The Willapa Heritage Foundation provides support to local artists and supports the arts in the Willapa Bay area. We promote diverse cultural and artistic enrichment programs and opportunities for our community - children and adults - to both create and enjoy art.

We hold one annual fundraiser, Hearts for the Arts, to support these goals.

If you are an artist and would like to donate a work to the auction, please contact us.

Community and Artist Grants Youth Art Scholarships

Our mission is to promote cultural and artistic enrichment in our community. We provide opportunities for members of our community to both create and enjoy art.In the last fiscal year the Foundation has given money to the Carriage House Museum, the Timberland Library’s summer-artist-in residence program, the Willapa Harbor Choral, Sunday Afternoon Live and our local schools. If you're an artist or organization providing Arts education or Arts based programming and would like to request financial assistance from the Willapa Heritage please contact us.

In the fall of 2015, we offered mini-grants of up to $25.00 for students grades 8-12 for purchase of supplies for art,craft and performing arts projects. Students receiving grants are invited to participate at our vendor's booth during the Raymond Festival Days in August 2016, or show/donate their work to Hearts for the Arts. The application for these grants has closed. The board is considering offering more of these grants. If you know a student in need, please contact us.

We offer an annual scholarship to local high school seniors who plan to pursue an Arts based degree. The scholarship is awarded at the successful completion of your first college quarter. Past awards have been made up to $1000, depending on merit and need. The application period for students enrolling for Fall term 2016 closed on April 30, 2016. Stay tuned for more information on scholarships for the 2017-2018 school year.
