Strengthen Virginia's Artisan Trail Network.

Please help us by donating. Your gift will ensure we will remain a strong, creative force supporting generations of Virginia Artisans.

The Artisan Trail Network is a working community across the state sustaining the authentic work, cultural and economic contributions that Artisan entrepreneurs make daily as they uniquely contribute to the vitality and character of Virginia communities.

Your donation will go towards the implementation of these programs:
• State-wide collaborative artisan events • Seminars and hands-on instruction of entrepreneurial development and digital skills, creating tool-kits to enable artisans to grow their businesses
• Helping emerging VA artisans access national and international buyer markets as well as expand into retail
• Fostering connection and community between artisans around the state

The link to our GuideStar page for donations is in our profile.

."I am honored to be joining the team to sustain and vitalize The Artisans Center of Virginia’s mission and vision for the future. Having lived in many regions across our country, I strongly believe Virginia has an uncommon abundance of home grown artistry. It is my goal to bolster each Artisan Trail across the Commonwealth by fortifying awareness, fostering economic growth, increasing tourism, and invigorating the workforce." Mayson said. "Being that I was a small business owner, I am especially excited about the entrepreneurial support ACV provides. I will be focusing on streamlining and expanding those services and tools."
