Cultural Alliance of York County is pleased to announce the allocation of $608,940 that will be distributed to its eight partner agencies in 2016.  These dollars were raised in the 16th annual “Bringing Arts and Culture to Life” campaign that funds eight partner agencies and the Creative Impact Awards that bring arts, history, and culture to the people of York County.

Thanks to our donors, volunteers, and supporters, the Cultural Alliance has a total of $608,940 to distribute to our eight partner agencies-an increase in funds allocated to each partner over their previous year allocation. The funds they receive are unrestricted funds, the hardest to get, and are distributed based on recommendations by a review panel representing our investors.

Every year, the Allocations Panel reviews finances and management as well as audience attendance of each partner to determine their funding.  As a result, the agencies receive constructive suggestions and recommendations as well as the all-important unrestricted cash that they use to keep their lights on and their operations funded.

The funding allocated to each partner is as follows:
