What we aim to solve New!

While the population in western Hanover and Louisa is growing, this area is still predominantly agricultural. With the arrival of new residents contributing to our economic base, it is of primary importance to provide cultural arts and educational services and facilities to enhance the quality of life in western Hanover. There are over 8,000 children in our market area who do not have access to extracurricular classes or programs that are crucial for positive and healthy development. For years, this area has been inadequately served with arts and supplemental educational programs. The programs have been previously non-existent or erratic.

The Center's vision is to serve as a key resource for cultural and educational enrichment in Central Virginia with a mission is to engage and enrich the community through a variety of cultural, artistic, and educational experiences. The ambitious goals of the Board include education in the arts, aesthetic and technical training in music, visual arts, theatre, dance media and literary arts and architecture. The Center has also partnered with various State and local agencies to deliver services to our community.

We will conduct bi-annual evaluations of community needs and utilization of the Montpelier Center and of current classes, programs, and services. The Board and staff will use those evaluations to develop classes, programs/services, and events that meet the needs of the community. The staff is committed to finding teachers and leaders in the greater community to provide classes to meet the needs of the residents in the surrounding area.

We have increased our Executive Director's position from part-time to full-time and have also increased the hours of the Program Director in order to put more time into surveying the community, evaluating those surveys, and creating classes and events to meet the needs of our community. We have strengthened our direct and social media tools even more since our local Herald Progress newspaper went out of business and have added an Instagram account allowing us to reach a slightly different audience than Facebook. Signage in our building reaches roughly 3,000 visitors each month. This communication allows us to spread the word of what we are offering and communicates our message of being an accessible cultural arts and educational community center.

Attendance of events and participation in new and continued classes will provide a data-driven measurement of our effectiveness at reaching our target audience.

We have successfully conducted two surveys, which have helped steer us in new classes for the fall and spring semester as well as determining the price for those classes.

Organizational Demographics

In order to support nonprofits and gain valuable insight for the sector, GuideStar worked with D5—a five-year initiative to advance diversity, equity, and inclusion in philanthropy—in creating a questionnaire. This section is a voluntary questionnaire that empowers organizations to share information on the demographics of who works in and leads organizations. To protect the identity of individuals, we do not display sexual orientation or disability information for organizations with fewer than 15 staff. Any values displayed in this section are percentages of the total number of individuals in each category (e.g. 20% of all Board members for X organization are female).
