ABOUT THE VISIONARIES 

MISSION

The ArtsFund Visionaries connects emerging leaders + business professionals between 21 and 45 years of age to our vision – a community where the arts are accessible to all and valued as critical to a healthy society.

By joining the Visionaries you are helping over 100 nonprofit arts organizations provide programming and arts education, reduce barriers to arts participation, increase access and opportunity for under-served youth, and for staffing, capacity-building, professional development, and facilities.

GOALS

Build community: Join a group of like-minded young professionals between the ages of 21-45 who are passionate about the  arts and believe in their power to drive social change.

Explore the local arts scene: Go behind-the-scenes at arts and cultural organizations throughout our city. Visionaries events feature discussions with arts leaders and catered receptions before performances and exhibitions.

Inspire young philanthropists: Our region’s civic vitality depends on young professionals leveraging their philanthropic power to effect change. Join our movement to strengthen the community through the arts.
