The Amplify Art! committee selects projects from the submissions and recommends them to the Arts United board for approval.


The campaign session begins when approved projects are posted on the Amplify Art! website.


During the 30-day session, Arts United leverages community connections to encourage support from corporate and private donors.


After 30 days, the campaign session ends, and artists receive a check for the money they raised, as well as a list of donors for their records.
