Since its inception in 1964, the North Carolina Arts Council has imagined and executed an innovative vision for arts development that touches every corner of our state — all 100 counties — from the mountains to the coast.
The North Carolina Arts Council’s accomplishments have created a strong legacy to build upon and position our state as one of the most successful and attractive in the nation.
In 2013 the North Carolina Arts Council Foundation was created to foster and promote the growth, progress and general welfare of the North Carolina Arts Council.
The Arts Council Foundation receives and administers private sector contributions to support special programs and projects initiated by the N.C. Arts Council that require public-private partnerships to have their highest impact on the lives of our citizens and the state.
Investment in strengthening the N.C. Arts Council will help ensure that the arts can continue to build vibrant communities for future generations.
