Founded in 1999, the Cultural Alliance of York County is South Central Pennsylvania’s only United Arts Fund. Cultural Alliance’s annual campaign powers arts organizations and artists that are essential to York’s cultural soul, and over the last 23 years has invested over $13 million in cash and $2.2 million in in-kind support for the arts. Under its new more inclusive and diverse operating model, The Cultural Alliance will be expanding its funding to further grow and strengthen arts and culture in York County.


2023 Annual Campaign

Shining a Light on York’s Culture

    A strong arts and culture community is critical for strong education, strong business and a stronger York. A healthy business environment, high-quality education, and a vibrant arts scene go hand in hand in cultivating York’s future. The Cultural Alliance 2023 Annual Campaign will help shine a light on our cultural community, allowing us to efficiently raise donations and equitably distribute operational grants throughout 2023 as our arts groups and artists work to grow our economies and reach learners of all ages.

    We Will:

  • Advocate: Represent the cultural sector and advocate for resources with business leaders, foundations, elected officials, and economic development leaders.
  • Convene: Facilitate a learning community of arts leaders and artists to share information and best practices on innovative programming, resources, and health & safety procedures.
  • Steward: Efficiently raise and equitably distribute critical operational funds-the hardest to get and the most needed in the next 12-18 months.

Who We Fund

The Cultural Alliance of York County’s partner agencies and artists foster interest in and exposure to arts, history and culture for thousands of adults and children throughout the region. Educational outreach, performances, gallery openings, classes, and camps are just some of the activities of our member agencies.
