Arts & Culture

Bank of America believes the arts matter: they help economies thrive, help individuals connect with each other and across cultures, and educate and enrich societies. We support more than 2,000 visual and performing arts organizations worldwide that provide inspirational and educational sustenance, anchor communities, create jobs, complement school curricula, and generate substantial revenue for local businesses.

Arts matter

We believe the neighborhood playhouse can be just as important as the world class museum or orchestra in its value to the community, in the lives of its citizens, and in the education of its young people. On a global scale, the arts speak to us in a universal language that provides pathways to greater cultural understanding.
