Private Sector Investment in the Arts

Business for the Arts works at a national level to communicate the value of investing in the arts and to address the concerns and interests of the arts sector. By providing research and resources on the economic and social benefits of the arts, by holding forums and workshops with business leaders who support the arts, and by giving arts organizations the tools to generate new revenue streams, Business for the Arts promotes and encourages private sector investment in the arts.
