friend of the bedfordbe a part of something special
The Bedford has evolved over the last 40 years with the support of people who value the presence of art in our community. We connect over 30,000 visitors a year with the world of contemporary art through our exhibitions and public programs.
We now need your help to ensure that the visual arts always have a home in Walnut Creek. As you consider your year-end giving, please include the Bedford Gallery on your list for a tax-deductible donation. Your financial support will enable us to continue serving a wide variety of audiences in this diverse region.
Your money will enable us to:
• serve thousands of children a year with guided school tours and art projects
• provide training and education for our hardworking team of volunteer docents
• offer lectures and workshops that stimulate dialogue about art, while creating social and cultural connections
• cover the costs of printing, marketing, and outreach to bring in audiences
Streamline your giving by using our secure online form. Donations are processed by our fundraising partner Diablo Regional Arts Association.
Thank you for your generous support.

We are introducing a new way to acknowledge our donors – we call it Andy Warhol’s 15 Minutes of Fame at the Bedford. When you donate $100 or more, we place your name on the donor flatscreen located at the gallery reception desk, on view whenever the gallery is open to the public. It’s our ongoing way of saying “Thank You!” for making the Bedford a premier art venue and a visible destination for audiences of all ages.
The donor board project was made possible by a generous donation from Friend of the Bedford Susanne V. Gibson.
