Actions We Can Take to Preserve the NEA and NEH

As with all non-profit organizations, BOA depends upon grant funding and private donations to underwrite our work. The truth is that the cultural life of Americasymphonies, dance companies, art galleries, arts-in-education programs, you name itdepends upon public funding for its very survival.

If the National Endowment for the Arts (NEA) and the National Endowment for the Humanities (NEH) are cut, it would decimate the cultural life of America and spell the end for many non-profit organizations. It would also end the substantial revenue stream that cultural institutions bring to our cities and towns.

On behalf of non-profit arts organizations across the country, and all of the artists and communities that they serve, I implore you to contact your representatives and tell them that the NEA and NEH need to be preserved. Tell them that you support America’s cultural institutions. Tell them that you want them to use your tax dollars to support the arts.

This phone number can be used to reach any representative in Washington DC: (202) 224-3121.

There is also a petition that you can sign:
https://petitions.whitehouse.gov/petition/do-not-defund-nea-or-neh-0.

However you choose to make your voice known, please make it known. The time for action is now.

Sincerely,
Peter Conners
