Yorktown Arts Foundation is a non-profit organization that raises money to support our mission goal by operating On The Hill Gallery, which is entirely staffed by volunteers. This means that all the workers at the desk, decorating, on the phone, at the computer, taking photos, writing letters, handling finances, sending newsletters, developing, designing and running website, setting up exhibits, running the Stroll, cleaning, marketing and designing posters, cards or invitations, and all the other jobs that go with running a business and a foundation are ALL volunteers. Each person is essential in the experience of opening and making sure that each visitor is greeted and treated like a guest of honor and that their encounter with us is pleasant and memorable.
Our Gallery welcomes visitors from Yorktown, Virginia, and all over the world. We need people to help greet these people and make them feel welcome in our gallery. You could be that person!
The benefits of volunteering are many. You’ll become a member of the art community. You’ll make new friends with fun people who are dedicated to our mission. You’ll have opportunities to participate in great events and classes. And you’ll be rewarded knowing you’re helping doing good work in your community: At this time the gallery sales commission is 65% to the artist and 35% to the gallery. If you volunteer one day a month it is 70/30, two days a month – 75/25,three days a month – 80/20, and four days a month – 90/10 (the 90/10 is limited to six volunteers a month).
You don’t have to be an artist to be a part of On The Hill Gallery. Even if you have only one day a month to give we welcome you!
Here is our current volunteer staff: (and if you think we have enough…we don’t! Please join us and help us spread the enjoyment of art, meet new friends and be a part of a growing organization that helps support art in our community… don’t worry if you don’t think you can… we will train you to be the best!)
Along with our Board we would like to personally thank each person whose name is on this list and helps in any way they can in supporting us… We truly appreciate each and every one of you!
