Established in 1974, the Skagway Arts Council is a non-profit, volunteer organization whose mission is to improve and enrich the quality of life in Skagway by expanding and diversifying art awareness and involvement.


Thanks for checking on Skagway Arts Council!  Unfortunately we have cancelled the Maggio Scholarship Fundraiser for 2021, as well as an event we were sponsoring for Expose. If you would like to donate to Skagway Arts Council there are links below. We are a volunteer board so 100% of funds go toward future events. We also offer scholarships and those are still available as there are always artists and musicians working on new material!  Links for scholarships are on the right, towards the bottom of this blogspot.

Donations can be made by sending a check to PO Box 116, Skagway Alaska 99840 or handing it to a board member in person.  We also take zelle payments at and here are some handy links if that is more your speed. 



Point your smart phone camera at the black and white box (don’t take picture), it will lead you to the link.
