In 2020: New Logo. New Tagline. Same Mission.

Believing that a vibrant arts culture is vital to a thriving community, Forsyth County Arts Alliance enriches the arts through strategic support and financial stewardship.

Along with our annual grant cycle, we support the arts by helping promote local arts events, encouraging community members to participate as audience, patrons, volunteers, and advocates. We also help arts organizations increase their capacity by offering learning opportunities and networking events, such as a Budget and Finance for Arts Organizations workshop and a partnering event at the Forsyth County Public Library, orienting nonprofits to the library’s Foundation Directory Online database to search for further grant funding opportunities. Whether we help fund an organization or not, we strive to build relationships throughout Forsyth County area arts-oriented businesses and nonprofits to help our community’s arts providers grow their audience.

Please see our Grant Information page for the details of our 2020 Grant Cycle.
