An unrestricted gift is the most flexible type of support you can offer to ACAD. All unrestricted gifts are directed to the President's Excellence fund which provides flexibility for ACAD to grow in key areas and to respond quickly and proactively to emerging opportunities.
Please visit the on-line donation section of our site or contact our Advancement office at 403.284.6238 to make an unrestricted gift to ACAD.
Gifts to scholarships and awards directly assist our students in paying their tuition and purchasing often costly equipment and supplies. Last year, thanks to the generous support of our donors, ACAD was able to provide over $170,000 in support for scholarships and awards.
Gifts to our scholarship fund can be any denomination and may be directed to a specific area of study. Gifts of over five thousand dollars can be made to create a new multi year scholarship established in the name and awarded under the criteria of your choosing.
Scholarship donations can be made directly through a secure on-line donation. Click here to be directed to our donation form. (link to online donation form)

Areas of investment are:
Please contact our Advancement office at 403.284.6238 to discuss giving in one of these worthwhile areas.
ACAD's Illingworth Kerr Gallery (IKG) strives to play a leadership role in the art world by producing and presenting the conceptual 'breakthroughs' that make contemporary art history.
A strong publication program to accompany exhibitions at the IKG will help to establish ACAD's role in international discourse on contemporary art and design. Planned publication circulation nationally and internationally will increase access to exhibitions for the interested public and raise the national and international profile of ACAD as a centre for the presentation of and discourse around contemporary art.
To discuss supporting IKG exhibitions and publications contact our Advancement office at 403.284.6238.
The Institute for the Creative Process (ICP) offers transformative programs that support cultivation of discourse, research activities, and initiatives that directly address the nature of the creative process. Work in these areas is imperative for the future growth of ACAD.
Support for the ICP builds ACAD's future as a thought leader in creative practice. The Stirring Culture Speaker Series, completed in May 2006, was the first public initiative of the ICP. This successful speaker series welcomed international creative thought leaders such as Will Alsop and Bruce Mau to speak to Albertans in a 5 speaker series.
We would be pleased to discuss options for supporting the Institute for the Creative Process. Please contact our Advancement office at 403.284.6238.
