Arts and Culture
Supporting arts and culture benefits individual artists or productions and society as a whole. Arts and culture are an essential part of a healthy community - helping to strengthen them socially, educationally, and economically.
What is Arts and Culture Philanthropy and why is it important to support?
Arts and culture are essential to our communities. Older community members can enjoy the health benefits from participating in various arts activities and improved health outcomes by reducing pain, stress, and anxiety. Young children can also benefit significantly from the arts with enhanced social and emotional skills and advanced cognitive skills.
Arts and culture charities, nonprofits and social enterprises work to provide programs and activities for community members, along with bringing people together by creating and producing performing arts performances. These organizations can also support museums to bring arts to the public and preserve and document art and culture throughout history.
By selecting an art and culture recipient on Giveabl to donate to, you ensure that past, present and future art projects and productions will be accessible and able to be enjoyed by all in the community.
Donating to performing arts-related charities, nonprofits, and social enterprises means supporting individuals and organizations that contribute to the arts and entertainment industry. These essential facets of the performing arts provide entertainment, a place for the community to connect and a creative outlet for the artists.

Giving to cultural endeavors ensures that cultural artifacts, commemorations and celebrations are supported and available to be enjoyed by all in the community. Cultural awareness activities allow people to see and experience different cultures and promote connection and acceptance.
Your support of museums protects cultural and historical artefacts that provide insight into the past. They also offer a space for children to learn about history and cultures different from their own.

- Why should I give to the arts?
The arts are an important part of society. They help create jobs and provide critical thinking, communication, and innovation skills essential to 21st-century careers. They also help people with health and well-being through art therapy. The arts also help to preserve culture and heritage for future generations.
Communities and people have been bought together to participate in and enjoy the arts throughout history.
- Does the Government support the arts and culture?
This depends on where you live in the world - some Governments provide funding for arts and culture programs. This funding can cover the total cost of programs, whilst the funding can go to a portion of the cost at other times. There are also many instances where arts and culture programs, scholarships or productions are not funded. This is where charities, nonprofits, and social enterprises are vital in the arts and culture space.
In today’s environment, Government spending and funding are incredibly competitive. Simply relying on Government funding is not a viable option for those in the arts and culture space.

Finally, you can look for reviews or articles written about the organization to get an idea of their effectiveness.
- How else can I support charities and nonprofits that focus on arts and culture, aside from donations?
There are a number of ways to support charities and nonprofits that focus on arts and culture, aside from donations.
