According to Americans for the Arts, businesses play a key role in ensuring the health and vitality of the nation’s arts sector. Business support for the arts is driven less by a charitable focus and more by a focus on how the arts impact the communities in which their employees live and work.
Through Americans for the Arts research, including the BCA National Survey of Business Support, we know that the arts benefit business. Half of the business leaders in their survey indicated that benefits to employees and their families are very important in making funding decisions.
Their findings show:
1. The arts improve the quality of life in the community (54 percent)
2. The arts help create a vibrant community and society (49 percent)
3. The arts improve academic performance for students (47 percent)
4. Arts organizations offer education initiatives that benefit the community (47 percent)
