What does it mean to be the largest community arts campaign in the country?  $12,250,000 in community contributions is a big number, but it doesn’t capture the full scope of our region’s amazing commitment to the arts.  Here are a few more impressive numbers from the 2015 campaign:

Pones Sampler 2015456 Companies Made Corporate Gifts and/or Ran Workplace Campaigns
  67 of those were new companies
  More than $145,000 in new contributions from small and mid-size businesses
