Founded in 1999, the Cultural Alliance of York County is South Central Pennsylvania’s only United Arts Fund. Cultural Alliance’s annual campaign powers arts organizations and artists that are essential to York’s cultural soul, and over the last 22 years has invested over $11.4 million in cash and $2.2 million in in-kind support for the arts. Under its new more inclusive and diverse operating model, The Cultural Alliance will be expanding its funding to further grow and strengthen arts and culture in York County.


2021 Annual Campaign

Arts Through It All

    Continuing support for arts organizations and artists will be critical for their survival, as they weather the next 12-15 months of financial hardship brought on by the Covid-19 pandemic. The Cultural Alliance 2021 Annual Campaign will help re-start the arts in our community, allowing us to efficiently raise donations and equitably distribute operational grants throughout 2022 as our arts groups and artists work to innovate their programming and re-open.

    We Will:

  • Advocate: Represent the cultural sector and advocate for resources with business leaders, foundations, elected officials, and economic development leaders.
  • Convene: Facilitate a learning community of arts leaders and artists to share information and best practices on innovative programming, resources, and health & safety procedures.
  • Steward: Efficiently raise and equitably distribute critical operational funds-the hardest to get and the most needed in the next 12-18 months.

Who We Fund

The Cultural Alliance of York County’s partner agencies and artists foster interest in and exposure to arts, history and culture for thousands of adults and children throughout the region. Educational outreach, performances, gallery openings, classes, and camps are just some of the activities of our member agencies.
