Cambium Giving Society

Just as cambium cells sustain and enable growth in plants and trees, the Cambium Giving Society is a group of patrons that ensures The Center for Art in Wood is able to fulfill its mission. These giving levels are considered sustaining gifts, funds that help us meet our costs for programming during the year and enable us to provide our exhibitions free to the public. Cambium Giving Society members are credited as sponsors of all exhibitions curated and staged by the Center during the year.

Make a cash gift or pledge.
