Each year we partner with organizations across the region to raise critical funds to improve lives and transform our community through the arts. We invite you to join us!

By running a workplace giving campaign with the Arts Council, your employees have the opportunity to come together and make a difference in their community, while we help you increase employee engagement, develop a more creative workforce and simplify your support of the arts in our community.

Start a Workplace Campaign

Workplace campaigns are tailored to the specific goals, culture, and needs of each company. We will work with you to craft a campaign that is right for your company.

Showcase Community Commitment

Research increasingly shows that people want to work for companies that are dedicated to giving back to their community. Partnering with the Arts Council shows you care about the communities you served and are committed, to creating a stronger, more vibrant community for your employees to live in.

Increased Employee Engagement

Company-sponsored philanthropy and volunteer opportunities make employees feel connected, engaged and appreciated. In addition, giving employees the opportunity to tap into their own creativity and showcase their talents builds team spirit and creates a safe environment where ideas can be freely shared.

Simplified Philanthropy

The Arts Council supports more than 150 local arts and cultural organizations each year, which means your one gift is invested across a variety of organizations. We regularly review each organization’s financials, work closely with them to offer guidance when needed and offer organizational and professional development resources.
