The Olive Hyde Art Guild, a not-for-profit organization, supports the City-owned Gallery through volunteer activities and funding for special exhibits and projects. The Guild sponsors art education programs in the schools and provides art scholarships and awards for local students.
The Olive Hyde Art Guild consists of people representing a cross-section of the community, patrons of the arts, artists and artisans. This group is brought together with the specific goal of supporting the community of Fremont in the following ways:
- Promoting an interest in and appreciation for the visual arts
- Supporting art education in the local schools
- Assisting with the programs of the Olive Hyde Art Gallery
- Encouraging participation in activities involving visual arts
- Broadening the scope and impact of the Olive Hyde Gallery in the City of Fremont and the Northern California art community
Public receptions to celebrate the opening of each Gallery exhibit are hosted by Guild members. Funds for these purposes are raised through memberships and one annual fundraising event in December.
