What’s the ROI on culture? Innovative leaders and teams, a thriving arts community, and a region on the rise.
We fulfill our mission because you make it possible. With every grant, sponsorship, ticket sale and program fee, you make up a strong community of corporate, foundation and individual supporters. Together, we work to advance arts, culture and creativity as a means to strengthens your bottom line as well as your community footprint. Together, we are building a city and region where people want to live and work, where children can find their voice, and where innovation has a home.
With funding from our supporters last year (fiscal year 6/30/16), our community of volunteers grew to include over 250 highly skilled business, legal, and technology professionals working on over 250 nonprofit projects throughout the region, totaling $2.3 million in capacity building services. Similarly, our leadership and team development workshops served over 135 professionals from organizations across the region, providing high quality training and employee engagement tools throughout the year. Finally, we welcomed over 2,000 attendees to our speaker events and Annual Awards Celebration, creating a unique access point for global thought leaders to engage regional communities and companies on the cutting edge.
