The Wildlife Arts Festival would not be possible without the generosity of our underwriters!

Each year, a dedicated group of arts patrons, wildlife enthusiasts and community supporters pave the way for new and exciting Festival offerings, culminating in one of Thomasville’s favorite events of the year and one of the nation’s premier sporting and wildlife arts festivals.

But the impact doesn’t stop there.

By becoming an individual or corporate underwriter, you play a significant role in funding the operations of Thomasville Center for the Arts — an organization dedicated to creating artistic experiences that connect people to themselves and one other.

The Center for the Arts impacts over 85,000 youth and adults annually through exhibitions, public art and education, all in a robust artistic environment spanning two campuses.

So, join us! Become an underwriter and enjoy all that is WAF,  or you may choose to forgo benefits to make your contribution fully tax deductible.

Questions? Contact Joanne Thomas, Development Director, at or (229) 225-8705.

Underwriter Badges provide access to and support the following:

Walk on the Wild Side Public Art Experience

Windows Into the Wild

Scout’s Artisan Market – Downtown Pop-Up

Migration Art Exhibition & Sale

Proudly wear your badge in support of the Center and the importance of sustaining the arts in our community.

Underwriters also have the first opportunity to register for Wildlife Workshops and the Red Hills Rover Rally and receive recognition in the Festival Guide and on event signage. Look out for our Underwriter Hospitality Lounges throughout the Festival season. You’ll also receive a commemorative 25th Wildlife Arts Festival curated box featuring fine flavors and art from across the region.

WAF proceeds benefit Thomasville Center for the Arts enabling us to continue to create a place where curiosity and creativity can flourish.
