Support SPACE & Membership

In the first ten months of 2023 alone, SPACE has worked with 1215 artists on our programs, exhibitions, art studios, creative residencies, and regranting program. Activate arts, artists, and ideas with a charitable donation. SPACE membership signals your shared investment in nourishing a vibrant Maine, elevating artistic voices, and building creative community.

Our nonprofit organization welcomes donations of any size; special perks come with a full membership. Gift membership options are available on the second page as you donate. We gladly accept checks issued to SPACE Gallery and mailed to 538 Congress Street, Portland, ME 04101, or dropped off/purchased at one of our programs.

Champion Our Mission with a Larger Gift

Beginning at tax-deductible gifts of $250, our Insight Members and major donors build art futures in Maine by creating low-barrier access to the arts, championing artistic communities in Maine, and dedicating resources to the next wave of ideas. With your support we can strengthen our facilities while making meaningful jobs and opportunities in the cultural sector.


If you are interested in sponsoring programs, making stock donations, funding special initiatives, or discussing any special giving please contact our Executive Director, Kelsey Halliday Johnson at director@space538.org. For membership questions please contact our Development Coordinator, Meg Hahn at meg@space538.org.

You can be a donor without cash! In-kind donations make a huge difference and support our programs, production capacity, and artist hospitality. To donate your gently used technology, furniture, equipment, or products that you or your business produce, kindly send us photos or a pitch. We deeply appreciate it.

What will your legacy be? Planned gifts can be made through bequests, naming SPACE as the beneficiary of a retirement plans or life insurance, or having a living will that generously leaves securities, assets or real estate to our nonprofit organization. Help fuel the next generation of artists with your legacy gift to SPACE’s mission.
