One Percent for Culture

Tell your friends to sign the appeal

Culture and the arts make everyday life in our city an exceptional experience. In order to sustain our vibrant cultural community, we need to end the decline in city funding for culture. We must tell our future city leaders to dedicate one percent of the municipal expense budget to culture.

In order to do that, we need your friends to help.

You can send the email below, or spread the word on Facebook and Twitter.

Hello,

Did you know that New York City's expense budget for the nonprofit cultural organizations has been on a steady decline for ten years? It's now down to less than one quarter of one percent.

Our city is home to over 1,300 cultural organizations and thousands of artists spanning across all five boroughs. From performing arts centers, galleries, and dance troupes to orchestras, theater companies, museums, and zoos, cultural organizations provide more than 120,000 jobs, pump more than $8.1 billion into our economy, and educate and inspire millions of students each year. Culture and the arts make everyday life in our city an exceptional experience.

Will you join me in signing the appeal asking future city leaders to dedicate just one percent of the city expense budget to culture?
