Make a Memorial Gift in honor of a loved one or departed member.

Sponsor an Exhibition or an Award  The Sketch Club holds a number of juried and open exhibitions on an annual basis, as well as special one-time exhibitions.  Sponsors whose contributions cover the cost of mounting an exhibition or providing prizes are recognized in promotional materials for the event.  Naming opportunities are available for gifts which endow an exhibition or prize on an ongoing basis.
