Heights Arts 2023 Annual Fund



Since 2000, Heights Arts’ Literary, Musical and Visual Arts programming has supported our rich, arts-infused community and people like you, who value the arts.

Few organizations support so many disciplines, and his sets us apart. We have supported our creative economy through commissions, sales, and performances in the amount of 1.5 million dollars since our inception.

Your Gift to the Annual Fund Helps Us-

  • sustain our group and spotlight exhibitions, year-round store and Holiday Store, which showcase hundreds of local artists each year;
  • support our EKPHRASTACY artist talks and poetry readings and Heights Poet Laureateship – the first of its kind in Ohio, and now expanded to University Heights;
  •  produce our ARTbar, Close Encounters, and Gallery concerts featuring local, talented musicians in varied genres in our space and unusual settings;
  • form authentic relationships to foster the arts, like our Cleveland Heights High School Student Exhibition internship.

Your support at any level is special. It allows us to stay flexible and take advantage of opportunities which may arise, pay our staff, and retain our beautiful location on Lee Road. It also tells us that you value what we do and would like us to continue – so THANK YOU to those of you who have already made your gift to Heights Arts, and If you haven’t already, please consider giving to support our mission today!


The dazzling 20th-anniversary celebration Heights Arts had planned two years ago was canceled due to the pandemic. Undaunted, we are now redirecting our excitement and energy to our 25th anniversary in 2025! The Heights Arts 2025 Club is a group of dedicated arts champions who believe in helping sustain Heights Arts and our mission to serve the many literary, musical, and visual artists who live in and enrich the region and bring their contributions to the community.

2025 members pledge to give $2500 or more between the fall of 2022 and June 30, 2025. Simply choose this option on the form and we will contact you for the details of your gift.

2025 Club members receive recognition on our website and other materials, and will be invited to a special event in the fall of 2025 honoring their dedication to Heights Arts, and celebrating our accomplishments in connecting arts and community over the last 25 years.

We ask that you consider a gift at any level – knowing it will make a big difference to our small but mighty organization. Gifts of $50 or more receive membership benefits.

With gratitude in advance of your generous support,

Rachel Bernstein, Executive Director

Bill Stigelman, Board President
