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.
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.

Art Conservation Project
Preserving and protecting cultural treasures from around the world.Exploreconservation matters
The Bank of America Art Conservation Project provides grants to nonprofit museums to conserve historically or culturally significant works of art that are in danger of degeneration, including works that have been designated as national treasures.
In response to the ongoing impact of the coronavirus in the communities we serve, we will postpone our 2020 Art Conservation Project to redirect this funding to support our arts and culture partners’ immediate needs. Additional details about when the application process will open for 2021 will be communicated later in the year.
