Support Arts & Culture
Greater New Haven is home to a thriving arts community that includes theatre, music, dance and the visual arts. It is invested in its libraries, museums, historic preservation and the celebration of its members’ ethnic and cultural diversity. Your investment in the arts keeps our community vibrant.
The arts in Greater New Haven engage hundreds of thousands of people from near and far. Arts programs create a high sense of wellbeing in the community and create economic and educational opportunities.
Dive Into The Issues
While Greater New Haven has always supported the arts and its artists, a renewed commitment is needed to not only sustain this vital sector, but also continue building a place where people want to live, work and play.
Historic preservation not only contributes to the region's identity and quality of life. It also stimulates the economy and create jobs.
The grants and distributions made possible by our charitable funds support the work of hundreds of nonprofit organizations and projects that serve the public and build community throughout Greater New Haven.
