How does my contribution to United Arts benefit me and my family?

The arts, sciences and history touch all of our lives in different and personal ways. They matter for… Our Children: For 26 years United Arts has facilitated arts and cultural education programming that reaches students (pre-K to 12th grade) in public schools within Lake, Orange, Osceola and Seminole counties. Field trips, hands-on activities and performances provide educational and creative experiences in the arts, sciences and history that enhance learning, develop and expand literacy and enrich our region’s greatest treasure: our young people. Our Economy: In the summer of 2012, Americans for the Arts published Arts & Economic Prosperity IV. This study measures the economic impact of spending by nonprofit arts and culture organizations and their event-related audiences. In the Central Florida region, results show that the nonprofit arts and culture industry is a significant economic driver supporting:
  • $264 million in economic activity
  • Nearly 9,000 jobs

Don’t arts, sciences and history organizations earn enough money from ticket sales and sponsorships?

Sadly, they do not. Only about one-third of the funds needed to keep the doors open at our arts and cultural institutions comes from ticket sales and sponsorships. Through the generosity of donors just like you, United Arts provides critical operating support that literally turns on the lights and cools and heats buildings. Without United Arts – and you – Central Florida’s cultural community would suffer.
