ArtsLink Sponsors


Dr. David Bridgeman will be sponsoring the upcoming concert
 by Trout Fishing in America and received NIP tax credits
for his sponsorship donation.
ArtsLink has again been awarded state tax credits under the Neighborhood Investment Program (NIP) sponsored by the West Virginia Development Office. According to Cathy L. Durham, Grant Management Specialist for the Program, “ArtsLink is offering West Virginia residents NIP Tax Credits for qualifying gifts made to them. This is an excellent way to support your favorite charity, and because the program is an actual WV state tax credit, a $1,000 gift to ArtsLink translates into an actual $500 out of pocket expense.”

The award was in the amount of $2,500 in tax credits. Funds raised through the program will be used to support ArtsLink programs, with a goal of maintaining current admission costs, which remain at 2001 levels. Membership dues have never been increased.

According to former West Virginia Governor Earl Ray Tomblin, “There is no simple way to describe the extent of the work the Neighborhood Investment Tax Credit Program has facilitated”. The West Virginia Legislature has extended the Neighborhood Investment Tax Credit Program and maintained the overall tax credit allocation at $3 million. Under the program, individuals and businesses that donate at least $500 are eligible to receive 50 percent of the contributed amount in the form of state tax credits. Donors may use the credits to reduce liability for the Corporate Net Income Tax or the Personal Income Tax.

“This is an especially appealing incentive for donors,” ArtsLink President Scarlet Hood remarks. “A tax credit is an actual dollar amount taken right off the top of the taxes owed. The donor may also be able claim the entire amount as a tax-deductible donation on their federal income tax return, which gives them an additional break. Sponsorships are available for our 2019-20 Concert Series and other upcoming events.”

Tax credits will be issued on a first come, first served basis. However, credits remaining on March 15 are subject to recapture by the Development Office. More information about ArtsLink programs and activities and how to participate is available on the ArtsLink web site,, or by calling Donna Earley, administrative coordinator, at 304-455-2278.


Members of the ArtsLink Board of Directors recently accepted a donation from Christine Mitchell, local external affairs representative for Dominion Resources Services, Inc. ArtsLink, the arts council for Wetzel and Tyler counties, will use the funding to support arts programs in the schools.

Dominion and its philanthropic arm, The Dominion Foundation, annually award about $20 million to causes that protect the environment, promote education and help meet basic human needs. The Foundation is dedicated to improving the physical, social and economic well-being of the communities served by Dominion companies, which also invest in communities through programs and volunteer activities.

Mitchell noted that Foundation grants are funded by shareholder dollars and are not borne by customers. “We are happy to support ArtsLink, and hope that it can continue to enhance the teaching of the arts to our local children,” said Mitchell.

For information on ArtsLink’s activities, please call 304-455-2278.   Pictured left to right are, Robert DeFrancis, Carolyn Hizer, Christine Mitchell, Mary Rohrig,  Jane Knight, Miranda Stokes, Scarlet Hood, Brian Rogers, Barbara Vincent, and Fawn Price.
