The events of the recent months have been surreal. We are in unprecedented times, and people are coming together to support each other, the most vulnerable, and the community in new and extraordinary ways.

We need your help. We are redirecting all of our efforts to combat the devastating impact of the COVID-19 pandemic on our cultural sector.

Ultimately we want to ensure our organizations are able to weather this storm and are ready to re-open when it’s appropriate, and be able to serve our community for many years to come.

Your gift now will help to support these immediate needs and will help provide the long-term recovery funds our treasured institutions and artists will need to rebound quickly.

Donate Today


If you have already pledged to our campaign this year, please consider an additional gift to help address the immediate needs of our organizations and artists and to ensure the long-term vibrancy of our treasured cultural institutions.

The first $232,000 raised will be matched $1-for-$1, thanks to our matching sponsors. As we secure additional matching sponsors, we’ll increase our fundraising challenge to the community.
