WICA opened its doors in 1996, fulfilling the dream of creating a Center for the Arts to thrive on South Whidbey. Over the following ten years WICA became a major artistic and cultural destination, and it was clear that growth was needed. In fall 2007, WICA’s “Stage Two” capital campaign was launched, improving existing space use and adding critical infrastructure and facilities. Beginning in 2015, WICA’s “Raising The Star” Campaign will tackle four specific needs:
- Upgrade technology to improve WICA’s functional and presentational capabilities
- Repair and replace aging infrastructure
- Enhance public spaces
- Retire the debt incurred to complete “Stage Two”
When you look to the sky at night, what do you see, twinkling? Stars... And WICA has a whole constellation: the stars onstage and the quiet technicians behind it; the hundreds of volunteers who help greet, serve, and give so generously of their time; and the innumerable patrons from our community and all over the world. “Raising The Star" is an opportunity to share in the passion of supporting an organization that touches so many, that makes magic happen on stage and off, inside and out.
No gift is too small; every gift will have an impact. Your support has always been instrumental in keeping the Arts alive on Whidby Island - join us now in Raising the Star! Please contact WICA to make your pledge today: 360.331.8262 or firstname.lastname@example.org
