Who We Are

What is Fund for the Arts?

Founded in 1949, the Fund for the Arts (FFTA) is one of the two oldest United Arts Funds in the country.  FFTA supports, promotes, and develops arts, artists, and arts organizations to help create a healthy and vibrant community for all. Since our founding we have raised over a quarter billion dollars that have directly and indirectly benefitted millions of people and scores of organizations in our community.

everyone embraces the art that exists in our lives every day,

everyone contributes to the well-being of our arts community, and it is understood that

everyone belongs to the arts community

Our Mission

We contribute to the overall health and well-being of our community by:

Our People

To support a full creative life for all, Fund for the Arts commits to championing policies and practices of cultural equity that empower a just, inclusive, equitable community.
