Support Creativity!

Since 1999, The Crucible has burned brightly as a beacon for creativity, enabling access to tools and instruction for artists and tinkerers of all ages and skill levels. Our arts education model is like no other–providing hands-on exploration in an intimate, collaborative, cross-disciplinary setting–and you make it possible!

As a 501(c)3 nonprofit organization, your support is an integral part of our success. Get involved in our community and support creativity at The Crucible in these ways:


Join as a Member

Starting at just $75/year, members receive a full year of priority access and discounts. You can feel good knowing your membership dues provide critical support for arts education, and they are fully tax-deductible.

All members enjoy the following benefits:

• Early registration access
• Discounts on individual tuition
• Free admission to Fireside Lounge events
• Discounts on event tickets
• Access to members-only CREATE program (Crucible’s Expanded Access to Tools and Equipment)
• Eligibility to exhibit at The Crucible art shows

Members at higher levels demonstrate their support for the arts and receive additional discounts and special invitations throughout the year.


Donate to the Annual Fund

Gifts to our Annual Fund fuel our fires, and provide youth and adult scholarships and free programs for local public schools. A gift of $25 buys safety equipment for a student, $1,000 sponsors a field trip for 60 children! Every gift matters, and donors to the annual fund also receive complimentary membership.


Make an in-kind contribution

In-kind donations of tools/bicycles/materials help keep our costs down and clear out your garage! If you have something you think could be useful in our studio or offices, give us a call at 510-444-0919.


Donate your old car, boat or other used vehicle

Visit and select The Crucible as your beneficiary. It’s easy, a great tax-deduction, and all proceeds benefit The Crucible.


Give your time as a volunteer

Over 11,000 hours are donated each year in our studio, office, or special events, allowing us to welcome even more members of the community.
