Established in 2015

St. Petersburg shines as a cultural capital. Our city’s leadership believes in the arts as a cultural place maker for those who work, live and visit here.

This endowment helps maintain the integrity of the City of the Arts as a catalyst for sustainable growth. We want to ensure that we preserve what drew people to St. Petersburg in the first place. Contributions are an investment in capacity-building support for the arts and artists. The St. Petersburg Arts Alliance is committed to establishing innovative revenue-producing solutions that will increase funding for our creatives.

The St. Petersburg Arts Endowment is the most significant way to achieve that goal and shine a light on our city of the arts.

The St. Petersburg Arts Endowment Fund at the Community Foundation of Tampa Bay is an investment that will allow us to support our arts and cultural community in perpetuity. The funds are invested and managed by the Community Foundation of Tampa Bay.

Most of St. Petersburg’s arts & cultural organizations do not have their own endowments. Our endowment provides sustainability so that these usually smaller arts organizations receive support, improving their ability to deliver programming, generate more work, and employ artists in all disciplines.
