Driving economic & social progress

Supporting the arts

We believe the arts matter

The arts help economies thrive, communities flourish, and individuals connect with each other while educating and enriching societies. Our arts and culture partnerships highlight diverse cultures and help nonprofit institutions deliver educational support to their local school systems. We believe the neighborhood playhouse can be as important as the world-class museum or orchestra in its value to the community, the lives of its citizens and in the education of its young people.
