Built by our Community

We are incredibly grateful to our many government, corporate, foundation, individual, and community supporters who so generously provide funding to allow Arts Umbrella to pursue its mission. With your support, Arts Umbrella reaches thousands of young people every year, inspiring creativity in the next generation — in Art & Design, Dance, Theatre, Music & Film, or wherever life takes them.

The list below reflects our supports as of August 31, 2023.

Finances should never prevent a child from participating in the arts. As a non-profit organization, Arts Umbrella is committed to making our programming accessible to as many children and youth in our communities as possible. With your support, we can provide families access to our tuition-based programs at a reduced rate and offer free donor-funded programs in the community.

From all of us at Arts Umbrella, thank you.
