The arts inspire our dreams, enrich our lives and create bonds that bring us together as neighbors and friends. We support organizations that meet high standards of artistic merit and community involvement.

Our three funding priorities in the arts are:

  • Organizations that inspire artistic expression in all forms and bring culture to audiences throughout our communities.
  • Organizations reaching out to underserved populations in the community and/or making meaningful efforts to expand participation in arts programming and attendance.
  • Programs and initiatives that utilize the arts as an effective tool to improve academic performance, improve educational outcomes, effectively stimulate creativity and/or improve literacy.
