Business Giving

At Arts United, we believe that arts and culture is a fundamental part of a vibrant, dynamic and prosperous community.  We are committed to increasing the visibility and access to the arts for all.

The leaders of Fort Wayne champion the community’s momentum, our quality of life, and our efforts to attract and retain top talent. Arts United is putting plans into action, supporting more than 71 nonprofit organizations that are providing arts and arts education to the Northeast Indiana community. But we need the support from businesses like yours to move the needle. Your business can help support the arts in the following ways:

  • Hosting a Workplace Campaign By hosting an employee giving campaign, you give your employees the opportunity to support our region’s quality of life by giving now or pledging their support through payroll deduction.
  • Making a Corporate Contribution When you give to Arts United, you’re supporting more than 71 arts and culture organizations in northeast Indiana by fueling Arts United’s ability to provide arts advocacy and promotion, the downtown Arts Campus, higher capacity for creativity and creative community development. Give now!
  • Sponsoring an Arts United Event From the Taste of the Arts festival to the Arts United Awards, Arts United hosts a variety of diverse events that promote arts and culture in our region.
  • Sharing Arts and Culture Events Communicate the arts and culture opportunities to your employees through your internal emails and newsletters. A list of current events can be found on our events calendar.

Does your workplace sponsor an employee giving campaign for Arts United? If so, lucky you! Be sure to thank your employer for their commitment to supporting arts and culture in our region.

Northeast Indiana is enlivened and enriched by an impressive variety of arts activities – dance, music, drama, studio art, stories – augmented by the many cultures and nationalities that reside here. A flourishing cultural scene is a driver for community vibrancy and connectivity, robust civic engagement, and economic vitality. Arts United is proud to partner with over 45 local businesses and nonprofits who serve as champions for arts and culture by committing to an annual employee giving campaign.
