Since its inception in 1967, the North Carolina Arts Council has imagined and executed an innovative vision for the arts that touches citizens and communities in every corner of our state.

The North Carolina Arts Council Foundation was created in 2013 to foster continued growth and support for the North Carolina Arts Council’s work. Your contributions will allow the Arts Council Foundation to support special programs and projects initiated by the Arts Council that require public-private partnerships to have the highest impact on the lives of our citizens and the state.

With your help, we will continue to live up to the ideal that brought the N.C. Arts Council into existence in 1967: “arts for all citizens.”
