The Ptarmigan Arts Scholarship is now supported with a permanent fund administered by the Homer Foundation.
All items are donated by local artists and businesses. All proceeds from the auction go directly to the Homer Foundation, a non-profit, and are used exclusively for scholarship awards. For more information about the Homer Foundation, visit the Foundation’s website.
Direct tax-deductible monetary donations to the fund are appreciated. Please go to the Homer Foundation’s secure online giving page and specify that the donation is for the Ptarmigan Arts Visual Arts Scholarship.
