President Trump's FY19 Budget calls for the elimination of the National Endowment for the Arts


Dear Members,

The White House has released its FY19 Budget calling for the elimination of The National Endowment for the Arts, The National Endowment for the Humanities, and the Corporation of Public Broadcasting.

Earlier this week, the National Endowment for the Arts (NEA) announced that it has awarded $3 million to 149 theatres and a total of $24 million to 936 nonprofit arts organizations throughout the country in its first round of grants for 2019.

The President claims that he is trying to reduce domestic spending, but these cuts will actually hurt the Federal Economy. The NEA accounts for only .004 percent of the Federal Budget while every dollar awarded by the NEA generates $7 in private funding! The NEA stimulates local economies by supporting dozens of small, local businesses and providing free arts education to students and seniors!




Let's make our voices heard.
Alert your Board and Staff and ask them to call their elected officials!


Call your Congressman and tell them:
  1. how much money you get from the NEA;

  2. how much private funding matches it; and

  3. how many audiences members you serve.
Remind your Congressperson that cutting the NEA funding will have a limited impact on the Federal Budget, but will be a tremendous loss to the Arts, especially in New York City!




Call the Congressperson who represents your theatre AND the Congressperson you vote for!


To find out the name of your Congressperson go to:


Please ask your board members, friends, and family in other states to call as well.
