United Arts Affiliates

United Arts Affiliates

In 2014 Community Shares of Minnesota acquired United Arts Fund and it has benefited our workplace partners and the broader community. Instead of sitting still while United Arts Fund’s 60-year run came to an end, Community Shares acted to preserve both employee choice in giving and a valuable source of funding for arts-and-justice groups in Minnesota. Additionally, acquiring United Arts Fund gave us an even stronger presence in workplace-based philanthropy, furthering our mission to help create a fair, just and equitable Minnesota.

These are the 14 Community Shares United Arts Affiliates – arts-and-justice groups that receive funds through our United Arts Fund program:
