We rely on the generous support of individuals, foundations and corporations to bring our music to life for over 80,000 Michiganders annually. We look forward to working with you to bridge your dreams and philanthropic goals to help make the music happen – on stage, in our area classrooms, libraries, day care and senior centers.
Ann Arbor Symphony Orchestra thanks the Michigan Council for the Arts and Cultural Affairs and The National Endowment for the Arts for its support.
The Michigan Council for Arts and Cultural Affairs strengthens arts and culture in Michigan by increasing its visibility; supporting arts education; encouraging new, creative and innovative works of art; and broadening cultural understanding. We are a key conduit for arts and cultural information, as well as a source of arts and culture grant funding.
The National Endowment for the Arts was established by Congress in 1965 as an independent agency of the federal government. To date, the NEA has awarded more than $4 billion to support artistic excellence, creativity, and innovation for the benefit of individuals and communities. The NEA extends its work through partnerships with state arts agencies, local leaders, other federal agencies, and the philanthropic sector.
