Sol Treasures


Sol Treasures awakens and nurtures appreciation and passion for the arts in people of all ages in South Monterey County and provides a home for creative and inspiring opportunities to unify the community through art and culture.

The Big Idea

The goal of Sol Treasures is to nurture appreciation and passion for the arts in people of all ages in South Monterey County by providing a space for creative and inspiring opportunities. Their project, Artful Community, aims to provide alternative methods for delivering art enrichment and education for South Monterey County in this current environment. The offerings will include virtual classes, do-it-yourself art projects, as well as socially distant classes, events and workshops. Instructors for virtual classes in a range of mediums will be recruited locally and regionally. The virtual art offering will be delivered through meeting platforms or videotaped classes. A Sol Treasures virtual team will ensure quality control and delivery of art programming. By nature of the current socially restrictive environment and the geographical distance for many learning opportunities, virtual curriculum is a long-term method to create, share, and celebrate art.

We are confident for our future and grateful for the commitment of our funding partners, board members, and staff during this time. We look forward to responding to the needs of the community with a combination of traditional and new programming. King City citizens have stepped up, once again, in their signature way with their support and generosity at this time.

We’re In This Together

Nonprofits are more important that ever in this trying time. Monterey County Gives! was created to support the local nonprofit community's Big Ideas (and programs). And thanks to your participation and generosity, Monterey County Gives! raised over $7.8 million for 162 local nonprofits in 2020.

MCGives! has now raised and contributed over $35 million dollars since its inception ten years ago. That’s astounding. And wonderful. Thank you to all our Partners, Sponsors, nonprofit Board Directors, staff and volunteers — and each of our 7,578 donors. We did it, together.

The 2021 Campaign begins November 11.
