Arts Walk Santa Clara was created in 2007 by OVFAF Founder and Executive Director Michael Morris. In the succeeding years, Arts Walk raised over $140,000 for the visual, fine, and performing arts in the Silicon Valley and surrounding regions.
To provide an opportunity for the many diverse fine and performing arts organizations in Santa Clara County and the greater San Francisco Bay Area to raise funds in a cooperative effort.
A 5K walk in Central Park in the city of Santa Clara. The Arts Walk promoted a fun atmosphere with refreshments and fun prizes for the walkers. Tables were made available for the arts organizations to share materials regarding their organization.
Members and Patrons of any 501(c)3 fine or performing arts organization may participate. Participants register online to walk for the organization of their choice.
100% of net funds raised by each walker go directly to the organization for which the participant walked. It is very important to OVFAF that management expenses not exceed 10% of the total proceeds raised by each organization.
