Support the Alliance

The generosity of our members, partners, and individual donors helps us fight for arts resources and policies that benefit Illinois.

The severe impact of COVID-19 on the arts and culture sector has made our work more urgent and important. Your donation benefits the creative sector and allows us to:

  • Lead the Arts for Illinois Relief Fund, which has benefitted 2,493 artists and 269 organizations across the state this year, and is continuing to make grants.

  • Organize the sector to advocate to policymakers and funders for continuing relief, recovery, and revitalization efforts.

  • Create resources that support artists and creative organizations in navigating relief opportunities like emergency grants, unemployment benefits, and small business loans.

  • Measure the impact of COVID on the sector through research and data-gathering vital to our policy and advocacy efforts.
