Thank You!

The Hampshire County Arts Council sincerely thanks our faithful sponsors whose contributions allow us to offer the community many events each year.

You Can Help

The Hampshire County Arts Council earns a penny every time you search the Internet using GoodSearch.com, a search engine (powered by Yahoo!) that donates half its revenue—about a penny per search—to the charities its users designate. Use as you would any search engine.

Goodsearch: You Search...We Give!

Go to www.goodsearch.com and go to the "participating non-profits" and "West Virginia" list to find us as the charity you want to support. Just 50 of us searching four times a day will raise about $730 in a year without anyone spending a dime! Please try it out, and spread the word! HELP US SPREAD THE WORD!
