We welcome your willingness to support us!!

As with any non-profit organization we depend upon volunteersand the Doña Ana Arts Council has many opportunities for individuals or groups to contribute to our programs – from gallery receptions at the Dona Ana Arts & Cultural Center to the Renaissance ArtsFaire – we can always use your help.   The list below contains our volunteer programs.

With a minimal staff and a volunteer board of twelve, you may ask how the Arts Council can successfully fulfill our mission. The answer is volunteers, and we have numerous opportunities for volunteers at just about any commitment level.

If you are interested in volunteering for the Doña Ana Arts Council, please fill out the contact form at the bottom of the page. We thank you for your interest and couldn’t do what we do with you!

The Renaissance ArtsFaire  takes place on the first full weekend in November and is the single largest event put on by the Dona Ana Arts Council each year. Logistical assistance with set-up and take-down the day prior to and immediately after the Faire is one of our greatest needs.  We are also in need of volunteers for the Las Cruces Arts Fair (mid March) Please fill out the volunteer form at the bottom of this page to show your interest.

Children’s Programs
The Arts Council has a number of Children’s programs throughout the year including Career Art Path, Opera Storytellers Camp with the Santa Fe Opera, Missoula Children’s Theatre and the Kennedy Center Partners in Education with the Las Cruces Public Schools. Ticket sellers/takers, program distributors, set-up or take-down help (or sometimes just to be an adult presence is all that is required) are all needed to make these programs run a bit more smoothly.

Dona Ana Arts & Cultural Center

Some of our events, such as the Annual Community Arts Awards, need volunteers to pass out programs, stagehands, or usher folks to their seats.  The Dona Ana Arts & Cultural Center is located at 1740 Calle de Mercado in Mesilla, New Mexico.


Don’t see anything that appeals to you yet?  How about helping us fundraise by calling a few friends or assisting with a bulk mailing?  We sometimes have ongoing projects such as taking surveys.  Or maybe you just want to get out of the house for a while and do some filing or answer the phones?  If you have some time on your hands we can help find a way to occupy you.  It’s a great fun atmosphere for creative folks.
