Individual Giving

As the region’s only privately supported United Arts Fund, the Arts and Education Council multiplies the power of your generous gift by combining it with other gifts to create impactful grants to nearly 70 arts organizations throughout 16 counties in the bi-state region. Those organizations, in turn, create thousands of outstanding arts and educational opportunities that impact more than two million people each year.

Your financial support for A&E enriches our community as a whole, influences academic achievement, drives economic prosperity and improves people’s overall health and well-being. In fact, few organizations offer the kind of return on your charitable investment that A&E does:
