Stories from the local arts community

Investing in Artists and Organizations. 

We awarded $2.8 million to 71 local organizations and hundreds of artists in 2020, yet a $20 million income loss for the arts sector was still projected. The financial impacts of the pandemic have been devastating; however, arts organizations and artists continue to be resilient, creative, and collaborative during these challenging times. With your dollars, we can continue this critical level of grant-making and carry our arts community into 2021.

Make your investment today to contribute to a remarkable legacy of which we can all be proud.
