Millions Raised in Campaign 2016

Thanks to our generous donors, ArtsFund’s Campaign 2016 raised over $3 million dollars to strengthen the Puget Sound region through support of the arts. Thousands of individuals and hundreds of businesses contributed to the campaign, the success of which will impact over 100 arts organizations, millions of individuals, and countless communities in the year ahead.

Funds raised in ArtsFund’s annual campaign support ArtsFund’s leadership, programmatic, and advocacy initiatives as well as our grant allocations, which will be announced and dispersed at the end of June. These grants, in the form  of unrestricted operating funds to over 50 distinct regional arts organizations, collectively enable over ten thousand performances, and ensure arts access for hundreds of thousands of students each year.

Details on ArtsFund’s specific leadership, programmatic and advocacy initiatives can be found on our website www.artsfund.org/programs). Offering leadership training to arts organizations and community volunteers alike, ArtsFund is committed to investing in the future, providing educational and development opportunities to over 100 arts organizations and 200+ community members each year.

Funds raised also drive the success of ArtsFund’s regional arts crowdfunding platform, power2give.org/PugetSound. In less than three years, p2g has generated over $1 Million dollars, and engaged over 4000 donors in direct support of 205 arts projects throughout our region.

This wide-reaching collective impact would not be possible without our generous campaign donors and sponsors, and our dedicated volunteers. Thank you for joining with ArtsFund to make our community an inspiring, innovative, and connected place to live.
