ArtsFund Leadership

One of ArtsFund greatest strengths has always been the caliber and engagement of members of its Board of Trustees.  We are governed by a board of more than 50 business and civic leaders and an advisory council of 14.  ArtsFund’s annual campaign is advanced by a 130-member cadre of fundraising volunteers known as Associates. The Allocations Committee reviews applications and interviews representatives of all applying arts groups, recommending grants to the ArtsFund Board.
