Why Support the Arts?
Each year donors to the United Arts Appeal provide critical funding to arts organizations and artists in Chautauqua County, helping to enliven both the spirit and the economy of the region.

The United Arts Appeal donates a portion of its annual campaign funds for artistic projects or artist development that benefit the cultural life of the county. In addition to Projects Pool funding for individual artists and smaller organizations, the United Arts Appeal provides operating support to seven not-for-profit arts organizations.

Supporting the Arts creates a competitive advantage for Chautauqua County. The Arts
  • Contribute substantially to the economic well-being of our community
  • Bring visitors from outside Chautauqua County
  • Have a multiplier or "ripple" effect, increasing by two and a half times the impact of both direct and indirect arts spending
  • Benefit local restaurants, lodging, and retailers
  • Generate thousands of dollars for local and state governments
  • Mean hundreds of events and cultural offerings that thousands enjoy
  • Provide vast volunteer opportunities
  • Improve students' academic performance
  • Affirm and celebrate who we are
