Supporting culture today and in the future

Our culture here doesn’t just fuel our individual creativity, knowledge, and appreciation for the magic in life. It also makes an amazing social and economic contribution to our metro region.

The SCFD helps cultural organizations survive and continue to provide the wonder we need. It creates needed jobs, adds to our regional economy and helps to build our economic base.

Our Cultural Partner, CBCA, conducts a biennial study on the economic impact of the cultural sector.

In 2022, here’s what SCFD funded organizations contributed in overall impact:

The cultural sector is just beginning to recover from negative impacts of the pandemic on arts and science organizations, including economic activity, jobs, and event attendance.  Overall, economic activity contributed by SCFD-funded organizations has increased since pre-pandemic activity!

Economic activity:

2022-$2.6 billion

This report is based on the data provided by SCFD funded organizations. You can read the full CBCA economic activity study at cbca.org (opens in new tab).
