Each year, we serve ~3,600 predominantly low-income artists of all ages, from children to elders. Often living with disabilities or other challenges, OFFCenter participants have the opportunity to recover through the arts, community building, and creative interaction. We’re a 501(c)3 non-profit organization. Donations are tax-deductible.

Goods & Materials
We welcome donations of new and used art supplies, craft supplies, recycled altered art materials, and office supplies. Our artists excel at reusing, recycling, and repurposing a wide range of materials into a variety of art forms. When we cannot use the donated art supplies, we offer them for sale in our Thrift Store so artists can buy low-cost art materials. All proceeds from sales support OFFCenter. Donations accepted during studio hours only and if you’re wondering whether we can use your donation, please call us! (505) 247-1172.
You can donate your old vehicle (running or not) to OFFCenter Community Arts by going to this link. Fill in your vehicle information and they pick up your vehicle, assess the scrap metal or resale value, send you forms for your taxes, and send us a check!
Services & Time
We’re always seeking dedicated volunteers skilled in event coordination, fundraising, marketing, mentoring, organizing and cleaning, performing, teaching, and perhaps skills we don’t even know we need! Give us a call or just drop in to ask how and when we could use your help.
Collaboration & Sponsorship
Over the years, we’ve partnered with many city, state, and privately funded organizations. These partnerships provide support while, in turn, we provide a unique teaching and learning atmosphere for student interns, community health organizations, social workers, at-risk groups, arts organizations, and others. We welcome your contacts and connections for collaboration and sponsorship.
