As a nonprofit, privately-funded organization, the Fine Arts Center cannot provide high-quality arts classes, theatre and museum programming without your help. We receive virtually no revenue from the public sector, while, across the country, institutions like the FAC receive on average 33% of their revenue from local or regional tax support – the FAC is 99.6% privately funded from people just like you. Our admission and class tuition revenues cover only about half of our needed income. We are incredibly grateful for your support and consider our donors, members and partners to be among our greatest assets.
While your membership has direct value for you, it’s truly invaluable to us, and priceless for the cultural vitality of our community. We look forward to having you join us!
Your membership is critically important, but dues, ticket sales, subscriptions, art class registrations, and museum admission fees cover less than half our costs. We rely on intelligent and generous private donors and sponsors for the lion’s share of the other half — your generous donations enable us to continue bringing quality programming to Colorado Springs.
Fine Arts Center exhibitions, theatre productions, Family Adventure Days at Bemis School of Art, and other programs would not be possible without the generous support of sponsors. The FAC offers high-value benefit packages with maximum marketing and exposure to ever-expanding audiences. New opportunities always exist for individuals, foundations and corporations
$153 Economic Impact
The nonprofit arts and culture sector is a significant industry in the Pikes Peak region — one that generates $153.3 million in total economic activity. This spending supports 5,070 full-time equivalent jobs, generates $100.8 million in household income to local residents, and delivers $15.9 million in local and state government revenue. The Arts & Economic Prosperity 5 (AEP5) study, orchestrated locally by the Cultural Office of the Pikes Peak Region (COPPeR), provides evidence that when we support the arts, we not only enhance our quality of life, but we also invest in the Pikes Peak region’s economic well-being. See more about the recently released study in the below video.
