Art surrounds us and enriches our lives. This year, we are celebrating some of the many ways that art brings us closer together.



Why Support ArtsFund

A single gift to ArtsFund supports more than 120 organizations large & small and fosters a more diverse, equitable, and inclusive arts sector.

In 2021, we partnered with the Washington State Chamber of Commerce to distribute Nonprofit Community Recovery grants on top of the $2.2 million in general operating grants made possible by our generous donors. Since 1969, ArtsFund has awarded nearly $100 million to over 650 arts and cultural organizations.

Arts Unite

ARTS UNITE PEOPLE. Dancing with a loved one in front of a live band. Walking through an installation surrounded by others immersed in the power of the work. Watching a child perform in their first play. There is nothing quite like experiencing art together. Even when we can’t be physically close, shared artistic experiences provide cultural anchors that unite us across barriers.

ARTS UNITE COMMUNITY. Arts strengthen social bonds by providing forums to engage with ideas, process trauma, and share experiences. Arts can unite people of all political, social, and economic backgrounds. They strengthen our neighborhoods, build connections that promote social health and wellness, and help develop youth into engaged citizens.

ARTS UNITE CREATORS. Arts spur creativity and innovation. Artists collaborate on works that push the boundaries of what we know about ourselves, our society, and our culture, and advance our collective dialogue. Artistic experiences encourage creative problem-solving to help us envision a better world.

At ArtsFund, we harness the transformative power of arts and culture and channel it to build relationships, spark innovation, and strengthen community. With your support, we are working to ensure arts organizations are united in their work toward inclusivity, accessibility, and equity. We invite you to join us!
