Established 2018

A catastrophe struck our arts and cultural non-profits in early 2018 when the State of Florida government approved the budget, with less than 5% of total funding recommended by Division of Cultural Affairs available to be distributed. Only the General Program Support grant was funded at all, with only 6% of the recommended amount. The arts non-profits are in the process of scrambling together resources, adjusting programming, and searching for other sources of revenue.

The Tampa Bay Arts Bridge Fund was established in spring 2018 with the leadership of the Gobioff Foundation and founding support from the Vinik Family Foundation to help 32 Hillsborough and Pinellas arts organizations meet the immediate and devastating funding crisis.
