GIVE TO THE ARTS
We are a community UNITED BY ART. Greater Hartford is home to hundreds of arts and cultural organizations that help make us a strong community - turning strangers into neighbors, celebrating our diversity, revitalizing neighborhoods and uniting us all. And it's your gift that makes it all possible. Join our annual community-wide fundraising effort, the United Arts Campaign, to support the arts and make a difference in your community.
Thanks to generous donors like you, the Arts Council is able to provide critical funding to nearly 150 arts and cultural organziations, allowing them to serve our community with cultural programming, educational opportunities and so much more. Plus, you can be proud that your gift to the United Arts Campaign stays in your community, helping to improve the lives of friends and neighbors and transform communities right here in the Capital region. Here are just a few examples of the impact your gift has on our community every year:
More than 1 million people participate in the arts in our region helping them spark creativity, explore different cultures, learn about our past, and feel more connected to our community.
100,000+ local students have the opportunity to experience arts-in-education and help them connect with school-based curriculum, expand their learning and gain cultural understanding.
600+ free community performances and open houses are offered to help make the arts accessible to all citizens.
More than 3,000 classroom visits from arts educators help bring the arts to life for thousands of local students and help teachers reinforce school curriculums.
The arts industry in Greater Hartford generates more than $230M in economic activity and supports nearly 7,000 local jobs.
Area teens have the opportunity to gain an invaluable arts education and career-skills training through our summer arts apprenticeship program, Neighborhood Studios.
