Institutional Memberships


Accomplishing CIVA’s mission requires the active participation of each member. Since half of CIVA’s funding comes directly from CIVA individual, organizational, and institutional memberships, a growing member base increases our capacity to serve the art and faith movement. Join CIVA or renew your membership at the level that best suits you, and enjoy the benefits—tangible and intangible—of belonging to the CIVA community.

CIVA Institutional Memberships—available to college and university undergraduate art departments, art and design institutes, graduate programs, and seminaries—connect you to like-minded professionals and institutions. Benefits of membership include:
