WHERE YOUR MONEY GOES

 

General operating funds are the most flexible, and therefore most valuable, of donated funds received by arts groups.
And though ArtsFund grants are unrestricted, the dollars are not unaccounted for because the ArtsFund grant application is extensive, and our Committees’ annual interviews are probing and thoughtful. ArtsFund grants help keep ticket prices as low as possible, increase access to the arts for all, and enable outreach touring and children’s education programs.

IN THE SPOTLIGHT

MICROSOFT CORPORATION

Microsoft

Since 1989, Microsoft and its employees have contributed over $6.6 million to ArtsFund, making the company ArtsFund’s single largest donor. Microsoft employees have served in just about every ArtsFund leadership role, including chairing the Board of Trustees, Allocations Committee, and serving as ambassadors for ArtsFund through the volunteer Associate program.  Additionally, Microsoft has made generous donations of software and other products and services.

Microsoft's commitment to local arts organizations goes beyond its strong relationship with ArtsFund.  Total direct contributions exceed $1 million annually; company matching and volunteer hours more than double that number. Microsoft employees have served on the boards of many prominent local arts organizations including the 5th Avenue Theatre, Pacific Northwest Ballet, Seattle Art Museum, Seattle Children's Theatre, Seattle Opera, Seattle Repertory Theatre, Seattle Symphony and Bellevue Arts Museum. In 2013, Americans for the Arts named Microsoft one of the Top Ten Best Businesses Partnering with the Arts in America.

Microsoft has been and will continue to be one of ArtsFund's most important partners. Thank you, Microsoft, for all you do to strengthen the community, and for so generously supporting the arts!
