Established 1927

Mission ArtsWave is the force behind Greater Cincinnati’s thriving arts organizations. Through nearly 40,000 supporters, we create the wave of arts that makes our community strong.

Serving Our Community ArtsWave fuels Cincinnati’s growth as a recognized leader with continuous innovation and the nation’s largest community campaign for the arts.
Attracting national acclaim and driving tourism, our arts connect us as a community and create a more vibrant regional economy.

Each year, ArtsWave supports more than 100 arts organizations, school outreach programs, festivals, and neighborhood arts activities through impact-based grants.
Funding for these programs comes not from local taxes, levies, or government agencies, but from tens of thousands of ArtsWave donors across the region, each adding to the arts ripple effect.
