ORLANDO – February 2, 2023 – United Arts of Central Florida’s (United Arts) annual Collaborative Campaign for the Arts has begun. United Arts and 33 campaign partners (listed below) are working together to unite the community and raise $6 million in support of local arts and culture.

As Central Florida continues its rapid growth, so does the demand for these organizations, and the need for funding increases. Dollars raised during the campaign will provide vital funds to help fuel the arts community throughout the coming year. Contributions designated to any of the campaign partners through the Collaborative Campaign for the Arts will receive a 15% increase by United Arts, enhancing the impact of donations.

“The best way to fuel the arts in our community is by doing it together,” said Jennifer Evins, president and CEO of United Arts. “The Collaborative Campaign is our moment to shape our community to include more art, more culture and more sparks of creativity in our community and in our classrooms. When we power the arts together, we paint a better world to live in.”

United Arts and the campaign partners have already made significant strides toward the 2023 Collaborative Campaign for the Arts’ goal, but every dollar is critical. When the campaign exceeds $6 million in donations, an additional $500,000 from Orange County will be unlocked — in the form of a challenge grant.

On February 1 at the Amway Center, the community rallied to celebrate the official start of the campaign with the help of the campaign sponsors: Clear Channel Outdoor, Downtown Orlando, Ernest & Young, iHeart Media, Jacky Herrera Realty, Joshi Law Firm, KPMG and MSL CPAs and Advisors.

The Collaborative Campaign for the Arts runs from February 1 through April 30 and allows donors to designate contributions to one or more of the campaign partners. The complete list of contribution options for the 2023 Collaborative Campaign for the Arts is listed below.
