Operating Support Allocations


Arts United serves the community by investing in high-performing arts and cultural organizations and their ability to innovate, evolve and serve the community.  Since our founding in 1955, Arts United has served as the largest single source of sustainable operating support for our region’s arts and cultural organizations. Today, thanks to the generous contributions to Arts United’s Annual Fund Drive by diverse community members, businesses and foundations, Arts United provides significant operating support to twelve organizations.  Operating support is essential to enabling northeast Indiana’s finest arts institutions to operate from a position of financial stability – giving them the resources they need to attract talent and share their crafts with the community.
