For nearly 100 years, ArtsWave has been the primary way Cincy's arts are funded.

When you give to ArtsWave, your gift ripples out across our communities, creating a more vibrant future for everyone.



YOUR GIFT is invested in 150+ local organizations, artists and projects each year that create thousands of performances, exhibitions, arts education programming, public art, festivals, events like BLINK and more.

YOUR GIFT impacts where you live with a total of 2.3 million people attending free or low-cost neighborhood events by ArtsWave-funded organizations, bringing us together through the arts.

YOUR GIFT supports arts experiences for kids through our "More Arts, More Kids" initiative to provide annual arts field trips for all 1st-6th graders in Cincinnati Public Schools, with more expansion coming.
