Membership FAQ

New members often ask us the details of their membership. Below, are questions people ask us on a regular basis.

At what level does membership begin?

As little as $50 will provide an entry way into exclusive benefits to the Center.

Is my membership tax-deductible?

Depending on the membership level, a portion of your donation will be tax-deductible but if you prefer to receive no benefits, your gift will be fully tax-deductible.

How long does my contributed membership last?

AWAACC memberships are on a rolling basis, meaning they are good for a year from the date your membership donation is given.

What benefits does my membership offer?

Depending on the level, benefits may include exclusive invitations to special events, private gallery preview events, discounted tickets to exciting AWAACC shows, and VIP member access and hospitality at our renowned festivals. Learn more on our Membership page.

My membership used to provide me FREE access to the Center's signature festivals—why did that change?

Due to COVID, we are no longer able to offer the festivals downtown in the streets, for FREE. Moving the festivals to a safe and comfortable venue has forced us to monetize our festivals, however, we have worked to keep the price points reasonable so that everyone can attend. Depending on your membership level, members may have access to early ticket sales, discounts, and a special lounge area at the festivals.
