Because of a generous grant, $50,000 was available to NASAA for a 1:1 match. Thanks to more than 200 people, the campaign raised MORE THAN $50,000 by September 30, 2013, securing more than $100,000 for NASAA. We are so grateful to our wonderful donors for their support. Thank you!

Your gift directly supports the services and programs state arts agencies need the most. With your help, NASAA:
Secures your federal resources: NASAA protects and preserves the 40% of the National Endowment for the Arts (NEA) grants budget that goes to state arts agencies. We work in coalition with national partners to advocate for the NEA's overall budget, but only NASAA safeguards the state arts agency portion and mobilizes state arts agency voices in Congress.
Illustrates your "return on investment": NASAA offers customized fact sheets, benchmarking data and policy briefs that help you make the best case for state resources.
Keeps you informed: NASAA is your authoritative source for federal updates, policy trends, research and best practices. NASAA keeps you current with Legislative Alerts, Report to Councils, a comprehensive website and NASAA Notes, our monthly e-newsletter.
State arts agencies are vital, in part because they support all the arts for all the people in our country. Lots of organizations support the arts, but only NASAA is dedicated exclusively to state arts agencies. Everything NASAA does helps state arts agencies maximize their value to the public and to state government. Ultimately, NASAA's work benefits not just members, but every American, as NASAA helps state arts agencies fulfill their many citizen service roles.
You are among a unique group that understands the important work of state arts agencies and their staff and volunteer leaders. Not everyone realizes how essential it is to strengthen state arts agencies. NASAA relies on the dedication of individuals like you who know that supporting NASAA strengthens and deepens the arts and arts participation in every state.
